SoKo knows what she wants, and she knows how to get it. When I visit her hotel room in Manhattan, the French singer/musician/actress sends everyone else out of the room and invites me to sit with her on the bed. “If I do this,” she says, “I want to be able to connect.”
It’s this insistence on connection that’s won the 29-year-old so many diehard fans. Born Stéphanie Sokolinski in Bordeaux, France, today SoKo lives in California and is openly bisexual, vegan, and straight edge. Read More

Indie darling duo She & Him is back to cover the Dusty Springfield 1964 classic "Stay Awhile" in the premiere of their new video out on Vevo today. The music video, directed by CANADA, begins with M. Ward picking up his invisible guitar and plugging it into his matching invisible amp. Zoey Deschanel appears in a dreamy blue dress, singing to her ghostly lover as he pulls her off her feet to dance. They spin and twirl around the house, which seems trapped in the 1960s, as Ward plays along. Read More

Noise-pop fivesome Joanna Gruesome have been making a name for themselves with ease over the past few years and if you listen to their latest LP Weird Sister, you’ll know why. Based in Cardiff, Wales, the band takes you on a rollercoaster ride that’s like a Stefon Meyers club: it has everything. Solid pop hooks, melodic yet distortion-drenched guitars, frantic solo freak-outs, and defiantly versatile vocals from the dynamic Alanna McArdle. Read More

How's your Halloween going? Have you carved all of the pumpkins? Have you worn your "Sexy Chucky from Child's Play" costume once already so it's kind of tattered but it'll still look so great in a dimly-lit room full of tipsy people? Are your apples bobbed and your candies corned? Cool, me too!
Listen to this mix as you prep for our national day of cosplay and lighthearted faux paganism—they're the sort of moody-spooky-sexy jams that the Lost Boys would love and the Cullens wouldn't be cool enough for.

Portland's own Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside made their way to the BUST offices in NYC to soothe our aching earbuds with a stripped-down version of their rockabilly love song, "Shivers." Only two of the usual quartet made it out for this intimate performance, with Ford on acoustic guitar and lead guitarist Jeff Munger on electric guitar. Munger's classic country riffs and solo matched Sallie's soulful energy with ease. As one of the few audience members, I've got to admit that Ford's pure, raw voice gave me shivers. Read More

Seeing Katie Crutchfield perform live might make you fall in love with her immediately. Although her lo-fi recordings are just as powerful, there’s something about hearing her croon her devastatingly raw, honest lyrics in person that can’t compare to at-home listening. The Birmingham, Alabama native has been hard at work crafting indie punk jams since her teens, notably pop-punk band P.S. Eliot with her twin sister Allison. After P.S. Eliot called it quits in 2011, Katie went on to form her solo project, Waxahatchee. Read More
