Heads up BUSTies! China's largest music festival, Modern Sky Festival, is set to come to the U.S. for the first time ever!

Not only will there be rockin' bands for two straight days, but Brooklyn Flea's Smorgasburg Food Market will provide festival ... Read More
Brooklyn-based blues rock band She Keeps Bees dropped a new single from their forthcoming album recently, and the video for the song is just as beautifully surreal and eerie as the single itself.
"Is What It Is" comes out on the album Eight Houses on September 16th from the label Future Gods, which will be the band's fourth full-length album. If you're into some soulful, dark, and dreamy music with goose bump-inducing vocals, the album is ... Read More

I’m super excited for school, you guys. Now, before you say anything, hang with me. Not regular school. I’m talking about a free, online school for teenage girls, with classes to promote imagination and creativity, taught by legends like Cat Power and Marina Abramović.

Here at BUST we love singer-songwriter Cat Power and were more than excited to see her new music video “Manhattan.” A track off her most recent album “Sun,” released September of last year, the video complements the chill and relaxed beat of the song with footage of Cat Power exploring the corners of Manhattan.
From posing in subway cars to wandering the streets of the city, the new video personifies the connective nature of the ... Read More
Cat Power (aka Chan Marshall) has always been something of a heartbreaker, whether she’s trying her hand at country-tinged, whiskey-drenched blues or putting a haunting spin on old classics. For her ninth full-length Sun (out today on Matador), Marshall has gone electro—imagine Moon Pix’s “Cross Bones Style” with a bigger budget and without the minimalism. A thumping synth drives “Real Life,” a meditation on ... Read More

Lovers of Cat Power, you can now hear her new album in its entirety! The album, Sun, has been reviewed by NPR as the “best record she’s ever made." And it is a fantastic piece of work.
The singer’s lovely voice takes on melancholy song that are slightly faster and a bit catchier than the ones she's produced in the past. It reminded me of the pretty harmonies and vocals of both Regina Spektor and PJ Harvey. My favorite of her new songs are ... Read More
Our week of hot, sunny sunshine just got a little bit brighter. Cat Power’s Chan Marshall recently released an official announcement for her upcoming album Sun with a new track that’s got us tapping our toes on the hot sidewalk cement. “Ruin” may be Marshall’s brightest song yet, driven by an uplifting piano melody and pulsating, rhythmic drumbeat. The song is accompanied by lady Cat Power’s soothing voice, which is as beautiful ... Read More
