closealmost a decade on from the first rocket girl compilation, this luxuriously-packaged double cd/download showcases the sonic esprit de corps of label founder vinita joshi - a twenty-seven track treasure-trove, brimming with the label's most recent aural acquisitions. cd1 comprises fifteen of the finest cuts from the most recent rocket girl roster - a cocktail which marries cult heavyweights (lilys, robin guthrie, television personalities) with new blood (a place to bury strangers, the brothers movement). the result is a family of tracks which parade their beauty in a variety of stereophonic plumages: from the elegant electronica of brooklyn%u2019s project skyward, to the blistering, blissful barrage of noise of japan%u2019s am. cd2 presents new, exclusive tracks from an array of rocket girl champions, past and present. psychedelphia stalwarts asteroid #4 rub shoulders with the reverb-laden lullabies of lemon's chair and serena maneesh while, elsewhere, all in the golden afternoon and a shoreline dream locks horns with synth maestro ulrich schnauss, in a pair of gossamer-light, melody-heavy collaborations.
