Rough Trade Shops
Albums of the Year 2011
Top 100

Everyone loves a list, Nick Hornby knew it and wrote a book based on them, and now Rough Trade have produced a very fine list, and it’s always nice to see artists that we distribute for, in the list. Here at SRD, we’ll be posting our very own list at the beginning of December, so please keep your eyes peeled.

Here’s a word from Harry,  SRD’s Senior Label Manager.

“Congratulations on their placings in this year’s chart to Nicolas Jaar and Circus Company label (#2) , John Maus and Upset The Rhythm (#8), Balam Acab and Tri Angle (#20), Unknown Mortal Orchestra and True Panther (#57) , The Field and Kompakt (#63) and Dark Dark Dark and Melodic (#78)…..a fantastic set of results!”
