VAR­I­OUS Be­hind The Counter With Max Richter ★★★★

Rough Trade As any record shop crate-dig­ger knows, the best mu­sic is of­ten to be found in bags kept for spe­cial cus­tomers be­hind the counter. It’s also the ti­tle given to this new se­ries from the Rough Trade shops which aims to plot a course through an act’s in­flu­ences and in­spi­ra­tions. With Max Richter, that map­ping takes the lis­tener on a rich and re­ward­ing jour­ney into elec­tronic and clas­si­cal ter­rain. There’s ear-grab­bing elec­tronic wob­bles from Aphex Twin, pas­toral shim­mies from Boards of Canada , spine-tin­gling at­mo­spher­ics from God­speed You! Black Em­peror and a beau­ti­ful re­minder of the po­tency of Ken­tucky en­sem­ble Rachel, as well as plenty of clas­si­cal fare from across the cen­turies from Han­del, Bach, Pur­cell, Adams and many more. A GOOD guide to what to ex­plore the next time you go dig­ging. maxrichter­mu­
