Rough Trade/ Green Man 2011 Compilation
The new Rough Trade Shops compilation has just arrived ready to be sold early up on the Green Man Festival site next week.
Selected and produced by Rough Trade Shops, we bring you a lovingly compiled 22-track CD exclusively featuring artists playing at Green Man 2011, aiming to sonically distil the festivals ninth annual summer shindig into one lovely listen. What better way to bring back the memories from a hazy, lazy, crazy weekend in the comfort of your own home – or maybe conjure up that special Green Man atmosphere?
The CD will feature brilliant songs by Green Man 2011 headliners Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine and Explosions In The Sky, as well as recent tracks by Josh T Pearson, The Low Anthem, Gruff Rhys, Holy Fuck and Squarepusher. There’s a generous helping of US lo-fi and folk from Sic Alps, Suuns, Lia Ices and The Cave Singers, a Breeders-esque offering from She Keeps Bees and an excellent crop of European singer/songwriters including Treecreeper, James Yorkston, Hannah Peel, and Our Broken Garden.
The first 100 copies sold get a free Rough Trade/ Green Man 2011 tote bag.
