     On their fourth album Indigo Meadow, the Black Angels have kept all of the echo, fuzz, and organ-wailing they’re known for, but added a tighter sound and clearer vocals. It’s obvious the band’s heroes are ahead-of-their-time legends like the 13th Floor Elevators, the Velvet Underground, and the Stooges, but the Angels don’t sound dated while renovating the psych-garage punk genre. Every song on Indigo Meadow flat out ... Read More
Recently someone on the internet described Jessie Ware as "the missing link between Adele and Sade," which is one of those "LOL WUT" statements only a music writer could invent. But after her live show this Wednesday at Music Hall of Williamsburg, it all makes sense. It doesn't quite come through on her recordings, but yes, she does have Adele-level pipes, and yes, she can get as funky as Sade. Who knew? Russell Crowe, apparently.  Compared to the pyrotechnic ...

On Monday, Kathleen Hanna (of Bikini Kill, Le Tigre and The Julie Ruin) had a radio interview on “Q with Jian Ghomeshi,” where she spoke about the importance of public mistakes, the resurgence of the ‘90s, and why she is still pissed off twenty years later (“Does anybody remember that the Equal Rights Amendment never passed?”). In the wake of the reissue of Bikini Kill’s entire catalog, Hanna speaks a lot about the band’s ... Read More
On their sophomore album, Portland-based Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside cull the best bits from music’s past eras, creating a mercurial hybrid of rockabilly, blues, country, and garage rock. Ford’s vocals have just enough of a worn edge to sound appropriately world-weary and jaded, but she’s smooth enough in her delivery to pull off sweeter, poppier tracks. Catchy “They Told Me” brings to mind the tight hooks of fellow retro rockers the Black Keys, ... Read More

It’s eighties influence is definitely showing: think Siouxsie and the ... Read More
Alexa Wilding, one of BUST's favorite singer/songwriters, has recorded a new cover of "Wicked Game" with her friends Erika Spring and Heather D'Angelo of Au Revoir Simone. Called the "neo Stevie Nicks" by the New York Times, Wilding infuses Chris Isaak's tune with dreamy vocals, and Spring's twanging dulcimer lends the track a subtle haunted quality.  Check out the cover on Soundcloud, and while you're there, take a listen to Alexa Wilding's ...

Though she sounds melancholy on her beautifully solemn debut Ripely Pine, Aly Spaltro has something to celebrate. As Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, she offers up a winning new brand of Southern discomfort (though she’s from the North), with tastes of pop, folk, and Americana. The album begins with a guitar slowly strumming sorrow, as if Spaltro is quietly waiting for the pain to go away while offering up lyrics like, “Love is selfish/Love goes tick tock ... Read More
