As the nights draw in, it gets more and more tempting to go out, alter your brain chemistry, and stand in a basement listening frottage electronica. Handily Rough Trade have scented our deviance, and are putting out a brilliant compilation called Synth Wave 10, featuring tracks from Quietus favourites Cold Cave, Led Er Est, Blank Dogs and Factory Floor. You can see the full tracklisting after the following exclusive cut, thanks to the good people of Rough Trade Shops. It is, you'll hear, Fever Ray doing a stunning cover of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 'Stranger Than Kindness'
