Rustie wins Guardian first album award

Glasgow producer and Dummy favourite scoops prestigious newspaper award.


Words by: Ruth Saxelby

Rustie had been threatening to do something very special for years so, on balance, his excellent debut album should have come as no surprise. But ‘Glass Swords’ did knock everyone off their perch: bigger, brighter and bolder than anything else released last year, as we noted in our end of year feature. Having received plenty of nods in 2011 round-ups, it’s further wonderful news that The Guardian have recognised ‘Glass Swords’ with their first album award. Congratulations, Rustie!
