Green Language

The second album from Scottish EDM expressionist Rustie explodes outward from the palette that made him a critical darling: the cheap sound of Eighties synthesizers, the hyperkinetic feel of Nineties IDM and the rhythms of contemporary bass music. Instead, Green Language packs in Godzilla-size bass drops, a Danny Brown cameo, post-trap weirdness and a whole lot of shoegaze-y pink noise. Sometimes Rustie's at the rave ("Raptor"), other times he's chilling on the porch ("Green Language") and still others he's rocking out in the garage ("A Glimpse" ends with a 16-second dream-punk hit) – but he's never easy to pin down.
