On November 25, the extremely fine Bristol/London label Rocket Recordings will be marking their "unlikely survival as a record label" (their words!) with the release of Crystallized, a double-disc compilation of freshly-recorded music from roster artists, friends of the label and some brand new acts.

It's an embarrassment of riches, including Teeth Of The Sea doing an "exploration in controlled noise", Goat, Gnod, Vision Fortune and $hit & $hine, who provide an "uncompromising track that sounds like The Necks covered by the Buttholes".

Lining up alongside them are Blood Sport, Uran, Hills, Rollbars, Cherrystones, The Lay Llamas and Anthroprophh (Paul Allen of The Heads teaming up with The Big Naturals, no less), all cut onto clear and black splatter & clear and grey/silver vinyl and housed within a sleeve designed by Luke Insect, making for one mighty comp - head over to Rocket's website now to pre-order.
