Massive congratulations to Glasgow’s very own Rustie, who has just won the Guardian’s first album award, for his debut LP “Glass Swords”, released on Warp in October, 2011. Other nominees included Katy B, James Blake, SBTRKT and Jamie Woon. Well done Rustie.

“Rustie’s debut album Glass Swords, you see, is a playful riot of a record, a neon tapestry of sonic thrills that incorporates 80s pop, happy hardcore, the Seinfeld theme, soft rock and hip-hop – often all at the same time.”

Read more about the award and an exclusive interview with Rustie on The Guardian music site.
