Rough Trade shops are full of geeky guys living in their own music-addled bubble.

Here, V2 have sieved the staff's collective brains for some the best music missed by the masses.

Counter Culture's 50 tracks showcase the cream of underground music, be it indie, country, slo-core, spoken word, folk, heavy rock or anything in between.

Not only will you be instantly cool simply by virtue of owning this, but you'll get a chunk of great tunes - The Spinto Band, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Test Icicles and The Long Blondes are all on the up.

There'll be stuff you can't stand, but experimentation is kind of the point.

Get counter-cultured.
