 Since 1999, thousands of people have flocked to a remote valley in Southern California every year in search of music, desert, and the timeless cool of Festival. It has become quite the maiden voyage for some young women—a journey and an event that has far deeper significance than any other weekend party or camping trip. Naturally, humans crave peak experiences, heightened awareness, and spiritual expression: music festivals are historically a motherland ... Read More
Rolling Stone’s recent feature on Frances Bean Cobain proves the 22 year old is wise beyond her years: A visual artist who already understands how important it is to force yourself to regularly create, Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter is currently in the spotlight because the documentary about her father she helped produce—Montage of Heck—will be released by HBO on May 4: The whole article is worth a read, but here are some of our ...

In celebration of the Amy Winehouse documentary, we're sharing a piece straight from the BUST vault. Read on for our interview with the late, great singer from 2007, right before the release of Back to Black. Powerhouse soul singer Amy Winehouse is the last person you’d expect to struggle with anxiety. With a number one album in her native U.K. and admirers like Jay-Z and Mos Def buzzing about her retro–Motown-styled new release Back to Black, critics are ... Read More
Katy Goodman premiered on the indie music scene with her band Vivian Girls in 2007, and before long we were listening to her from our dorm room radios and relying on her for all our angsty-feminist-dream core desires. Formerly known as "Kickball Katy," she's a pro at blending her riot girl sensibilities with melodic, romantic vocals. Her music is wonderfully poppy and elegant, while also comfortably dark and stormy. Since Vivian Girls, Katy has made musical magic ... Read More
Our Icelandic queen, Björk, is back at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in NYC for her very own retrospective! I had the opportunity to check it out the other day, and honestly, I had no idea what to expect. I was handed an audio guide with headphones and there was a vibrant buzz around the MoMA as I followed the bright pink wall toward the Björk Songlist exhibit. After a brief introduction, I stepped into the first space of the exhibit and was ...

It seems wrong to say that any of these lady bands are out to pay tribute to anyone; they rock so hard on their own. But bands like Lez Zeppelin and Vag Halen are doing so much more than covering old faves—they’re out to take on the male dominated world of rock and roll, one metal band at a time. Lez Zeppelin  Founded in 2004 by lead guitarist Steph Paynes, Lez Zeppelin thinks of themselves as a “she-incarnation” rather than a tribute ... Read More
  Put every collaborating musician from super producer Emile Haynie’s We Fall into one room, and it would be music’s version of 2015’s “SNL 40” special. At first glance, the list of guest appearances in the Saturday Night Live special seemed ridiculous, hyperbolic. However, while there were some brief moments of brilliance, the immense pool of talent was ultimately diluted into a flavorless mess. Much like “SNL 40,” We Fall features too many ... Read More

  Last night marked the first of Ms. Lauryn Hill's four (currently) scheduled New York shows of her intimate Small Axe: Acoustic Performance Series. The New Jersey native kept her fans at the sold-out show waiting well past the 8pm open doors, which audience members spent huddled in the main room of the Williamsburg record store/venue/cafe, Rough Trade. Hill didn't grace the stage until about 11:30pm. Prior to her set, Hill fans were shown a gravely serious ... Read More
  “Don’t need a Hercules, Lancelot or Bond/Don’t treat me like some dumb blonde.” Damn straight. Cute, upbeat, and right to the point with lines like “I didn’t go to school to be a victim in dress”, Rebecca Juliet’s “Damsel in Distress” may be February’s new feminist track. Full video below—it's definitely worth a watch.  So dudes, take note: Nothing is less unsexy than telling us to ... Read More
