Excellent, but I really hope the trap influences on this album aren’t as prominent as the first two tracks would seem to indicate. Rustie has so much more to offer from a composition/arrangement perspective.

Love these guys, and this record.

Anybody else get a strong Dead Milkmen vibe from PC?

The name of Rustie’s album is Glass Swords, and it came out in 2011.

I would switch #1 and #2 – but it’s a minor quibble.

The 4 album Rod/Faces run of Every Picture Tells a Story > Nod> Never a Dull Moment > Ooh La La is one of my favorites in rock n roll.

great pick for album of the week.

one album which deserved to be included in the notables is Haiku Salut’s impressive debut, Tricolore.

An all-female instrumental trio from England, they offer up the clumsy self-description of “Baroque-Pop-Folktronic-Neo-Classical-Something-Or-Other” – but I can’t do any better.

The album is filled with uplifting, complex-yet-accessible compositions perfect for springtime. And it’s available on Spotify.
