Boomkat Product Review:
"Almost a decade on from the first Rocket Girl compilation, this luxuriously-packaged double CD 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. Launched in 1997, Rocket Girl has established itself as one of the UK’s premier independent labels and, while the music Joshi releases spans a variety of genres (everything from spacerock, to baroque pop, to plinky-plonky electronica), the one constant is Joshi’s unwavering ear for beauty. 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’s Project Skyward, to the blistering, blissful barrage of noise of Japan’s aM. A pitch-perfect companion, 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. Sharing is at the heart of the Rocket Girl ethic – as well as releasing records, Joshi runs a long-standing mail order company, launching an ever-expanding array of records into the atmosphere, for the joy of sharing the music she loves."
