BUST favorites Spank Rock and Santigold teamed up for "Car Song" on his 2011 album Everything is Boring and Everyone is a Fucking Liar, and now there's a spooky music video to go with the song. The video, directed by photographer/filmmaker Luis Gispert, highlights pretty much everything we love about Spank Rock: his irreverent sense of humor and playful eccentricity. The climax of the video features Santigold needlepointing while two girls cover each other in blue paint and a muscled man in a top hat carries Spank Rock around.

Melt, the title of Young Magic's debut (out now on Carpark), is just one word that could describe how the songs on this record came together. The album is not only a melting pot of the group’s talents but a retelling of their musical journeys, long in both miles and inspiration. In 2010, producer and Australian native Isaac Emmanuel found himself recording music while traveling across Europe and in the U.S. and Mexico. Coincidentally, Emmanuel’s pal Michael Italia was doing the exact same thing.

The solitary struggles and internal vacillation that helped Erika Wennerstrom build The Mountain have led her to a grounded place of reflection on the Heartless Bastards' new album Arrow (out now on Partisan). This 10-song LP is a travelogue from the open road that rambles through the rust-colored dirt and expansive landscape of the Southwest. “Marathon,” a meditative prologue, is the warm-up stretch that kicks the journey into gear, rolling into the fits and starts of “Parted Ways.

  The folks over at Saturday Night Live must really love BUST Magazine! The host of this weekend's comedy sketch show is none other than yours truly. Sort of.

This picture aptly summarizes precisely what is wrong with the on-going reproductive rights debate in America. This is a panel put together by Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee which is holding a circus hearing titled “Lines Crossed: Separation of Church and State. Has the Obama Administration Trampled on Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Conscience?” today.

After reading a comment posted by a "shellylovelace" on a YouTube video that suspiciously sounded like our old friend Courtney Love, I followed the link back to discover internetz GOLD: Courtney's own YouTube Channel.

Add Virginia to the list of states where lawmakers want to make it easier to be a fertilized egg than a woman. Rather than focusing on education or job creation in light of the worst recession since the 1930's, yet another state legislature has turned its energy and resources against our inalienable right to choose what happens inside our own bodies.    The Virginia House of Delegates passed two controversial anti-choice bills, sending them to the Senate. HB 1, the so-called "personhood" bill is frankly terrifying: it aims to grant full constitutional rights to fertilized eggs.

My mother has all these great cooking stories from her girlhood involving her Italian aunts making homemade ravioli out of giant volcanos of flour right on the kitchen table. Wild stuff! One of her greatest regrets is never mastering the art of handmade pasta while she had the chance, so a few Christmases ago I bought her a cookbook called Cooking with Italian Grandmothers. She opened the box, looked at me and said, "Are you pregnant?" She totally missed the really sweet point I was trying to make.

Whether I'm going to shows or eyeing collections from the comfort of the Internet, I still get giddy every time Fashion Week rolls around. From the street style and celebrities to the runway shows themselves, everything about the week is thrilling! This year I was lucky enough to see Christian Siriano's collection for Fall 2012.  I had the full fashion experience. Right before the show started, I was washing my hands in the bathroom next to a woman in a lovely, bright fucshia dress (A Siriano, of course).
