Flor de Toloache is a new band hitting the streets of New York City. They're a group that you might not be expecting, especially when you hear the genre of music they play. Flor de Toloache is an all-female mariachi band gaining momentum in the big city, and claims itself to be the first of its kind in NYC. Co-founded by Mireya Ramos, 31 and Shae Fiol, 34 the band is a group of women hailing from a group of diverse backrounds.

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 goals, such as encouraging girls to get out and make their own music. 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, while Ford’s vocal style on “Do Me Right” owes a little to girl-group legends the Shangri-Las. Read More
It’s been nearly four years since Phoenix released their award-winning album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. This April will bring the release of their follow-up LP, Bankrupt! from Glassnote Records. They have been posting tantalizing teasers on their website, but yesterday they finally revealed a video for their debut track “Entertainment.” Check it out below. It’s eighties influence is definitely showing: think Siouxsie and the Banshees’ “Hong Kong Garden,” with a modern Versaille twist. 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 newly released album, Coral Dust, which you can stream online. Here's one particularly awesome tune: {http://soundcloud. Read More
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 tick.” She can sound sweet and angelic, then belt like a banshee because you’re too late to sweep her off her feet.
