rustie – city star (taken from “glass swords“, warp 2011)
rustie – death mountain (taken from “glass swords“, warp 2011)

The debut album by Scottish producer Rustie is yet another example of the fact that 2011 is shaping up to be the year of unlikely musical hybrids – “Glass swords” is a melodic roller-coaster ride that combines seventies prog rock with the fidgety experiments of people like Squarepusher and the changing shapes of cutting edge video mapping. I haven’t been able to listen to the whole thing in one sitting: too much energy and ideas going off like fireworks. Listen to two tracks above and you’ll probably be invigorated or tired…

NB: the post title is derived from a 1993 Anthrax single.
