But even back then, she had that spark that made us so excited to introduce her to the readers BUST Magazine asap. Enjoy this Flashback Friday reprint of the chat Amy had with our editor Molly Simms almost exactly ten years ago....

Laura Marling had an early arrival to the limelight, but that hasn’t hindered her in her success or development as an artist. At 27 years old, the British songstress could sit aside greats such as Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Leonard Cohen and effortlessly hold her own. Releasing her latest album Semper Femina during the same week as International Women’s Day feels like much more than a blissful coincidence. Since then we have had it on a loop. The album, Latin for “always a woman,” which...

NYC-based surf band High Waisted is back with a new video, "Human Performance," for their cover of the original Parquet Courts song off of the band's Acid Tapes Volume 3. The video was written and directed by frontwoman Jessica Louise Dye. Dye has been heartbroken since the election and turned to creating when she realized that protesting just wasn't enough. Dye's video is a dreamy feminist satire of the relationship between consumer capitalism and the female body — of this idea that our bodies can be bought. Dye uses hyper-sexualized...
