Come Into My House

BY Laurie in Music

There has been a whole slew of fun dance/rock/disco bands coming out in the last few years, like Daft Punk, LCD Soundsystem, Justice and Simian Mobile Disco, but my current fave of the bunch is 23 year old Calvin Harris from the UK. His mix of juicy slabs of funk and goofy falsetto lyrics on his new release, I Created Disco, (out here in Sept.) is simply irresistable. And in an absolutele genius marketing/promotional move, he's asked his UK fans to stage simultaneuos house parties on Aug. 18th, the night of his single release. Read More

Flight de la Conchords

BY debbie in Music

Okay, so, yeah, I'm totes obsessed with Flight of the Conchords , and always enjoy the songs in their episodes-- those funny, pitch-perfect takeoffs on various music genres. But last night's song-- a mock '60s French pop number, whose lyrics consisted of only those French words that someone who'd studied it in high school would be likely to remember--is so good, I'd gladly listen to it even if it weren't funny.

Oh, Siren Fest bliss.

BY Tara in Music

No! The sweat, and the heat, and gnarly funk of hipster B.O., and the epic 45 minute train ride that goes on forever, and the ridiculous mass of people did not keep me away! I went and I saw and I was blown away. First, hot dog in hand, my socks were officially knocked off by Noisettes' front-woman Shingai Shoniwa who rocked so hard the stage was shaking and who's stage presence and overall aura is not one to be missed. Check out page 92 of the June/July issue of BUST for more on her. Then, I moved to the Stillwell stage to check out the adorable Becky and band that makes up Lavender Diamond. Read More

The Morning After

BY Lisa in Music

It's no surprise that BUST readers know how to get down. Last night's issue release party at Union Pool in Brooklyn was a smashing success full of fresh beats, sick jams, and lots o' BUSTy love. Today at HQ, we relied on a few key elements to get us through the day: too-good-to-be-true mac n cheese and Iggy Pop on repeat. Dawn will be blogging all about the party tomorrow but until then, feast your eyes and ears on this awesome snippet of gospel singer Sister Rosetta Tharpe. She was a hit in the '30s and '40s, shakin' up the music world with her rockin' soul. Read More
BUST's "Pop Tart" columnist Wendy McClure came through N.Y.C. last weekend on a visit from her sweet home Chicago, so I made sure to grab a pineapple full of liquid sunshine with her at one of my fave bars, Trailer Park. As one of the few people on earth I will concede knows more about pop culture than I, Wendy in person didn't disappoint, and in fact dazzled me with this little gem of ephemera she picked up on her visit to the Museum of Television and Radio.
