We’ve been expecting the Amy Winehouse documentary for a while now. Its creation was announced, trailers were released, and all the while we’ve been yelling, “are we there yet?!” Well, we have some good news, BUSTIEs: we got what we wished for! Asif Kapadia’s Amy was played for some very lucky pairs of eyes at The Cannes Film Festival this past week and selected to potentially win the Palme d’Or award. We can’t wait until ... Read More
Courtney Love has a new song out via Ghost Ramp: “Miss Narcissist” is classic Courtney, confrontational and acidic. Love is touring with Lana Del Ray this summer, part of Del Ray’s “Endless Summer” tour, and “Miss Narcissist” seems perfectly suited to the arena. Like much of Love’s best work, her new tune is both a sly commentary and an anthem, sure to be heard in bedrooms and stadiums alike. Listen here. Artwork by ... Read More
  I walk into the House of Vans Brooklyn Venue on a Saturday afternoon. A spattering of bass and drums fills the drafty warehouse full of skate ramps, expansive space, and a performance stage. On that stage is Kathleen Hanna and The Julie Ruin. The band is here to kick off their summer tour and they're in the middle of a soundcheck. Hanna greets me with a casual wave that melts away any nerves about speaking with this group of feminist ... Read More
  Legendary Ari Up started making a documentary about the influential herstory of her band The Slits. She teamed up with former band manager Jennifer Shagawat to deliver this epic story of social rebellion, riot, and really awesome music. It’s crazy we don’t know that much about The Slits yet, considering they laid the foundation for so many feminist and punk movements that happened after them. They were pre riot grrrl, post punk, and transformed ... Read More

“I want to be in a movie,” Meredith Graves tells me. “I do kind of feel like I’m living in a movie a lot of the time.” The 27-year-old musician and writer would be a compelling heroine, no doubt. A cinematographer couldn’t hope for a more arresting visual than a wide shot of Graves onstage with her band Perfect Pussy, gripping the microphone with white knuckles, a sea of sweaty kids pushing each other in the pit below.

  It’s hard to believe, but summer is right around the corner—and that means it’s almost time to strut down the street in your cutoff shorts, ice cream cone in hand, with some fresh tunes blasting from your headphones. If you're in need of some new music inspiration, look no further than rad Brooklynite Lane Moore’s band: It Was Romance. Brilliantly brooding vocals and killer dance beats combine on the record (which is officially out ... Read More
    To fans of Hole’s seminal 1994 album Live Through This, the sound of Patty Schemel behind a drum kit is simply unmistakable. As I wandered through the factories of East Williamsburg in search of the venue where Patty and her pop-punk band Upset were sound-checking before their show, I heard those blistering clicks and felt as if I’d found the north star. I knew I was in the right place.   Patty Schemel is an unusual figure in ... Read More
