After netting a hat trick on Danny Brown’s last album (2013’s Old LP), Rustie reunites with the mercurial rapper on his own Green Language album, serving up their strongest collaboration yet. “Attack” is exactly that: a sensory overload session that starts with a siren call and doesn’t let up for three minutes, as BPMs shift, synth lines spray, and Brown sounds like he’s ready for battle with everyone and everything. And yet, as aggressive as it all is, the duo never loses sight of the dance floor below; they pull the pin on it instead, like a pressure cooker that’s about to go bang.
