Every year when the temperature starts to decrease I find myself fumbling through albums that beckon story telling, invite group vocals and paint dream like images of autumn breezes flowing through my moth eaten flannel. Now I do recognize that many people do this all year round, but there is something so pleasing about seasonal record listening. Nothing says fall like the crunching of leaves and twigs beneath feet that are frolicking to a shoe gaze, experimental, Americana soaked record. Shadow Shadow Shades's debut record is all this and more. Read More
Come on out tomorrow, October 21st, to see our very own Crafty Lady, Callie Watts, speak at CMJ's panel discussion Take Back The Mic; Challenging Hip-Hop Stereotypes. The panel speakers will be addressing everything from female MC's to sissy bounce - "all walks of the lesser-heard voices from the urban, rap and hip-hop worlds speak up." Panelists include Marisa Aveling, Rah Digga, Starrene Rhett, Big Freedia, and Victor Vazquez of Das Racist. CMJ isn't all about getting schwasted and getting your groove on, so take a break from that, and come learn something and support one of our own. Read More

I know it's CMJ madness, but one of the top shows to see this weekend will be Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips performing 13 Most Beautiful…Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests, at NYU's Skirball Center on Friday night. The duo will perform a live soundtrack to Warhol's Screen Tests (shot between 1964 and 1966 at the factory) and include such icons as Edie Sedgwick, Dennis Hopper,  Nico and Lou Reed, among others. I'm super stoked for this show, as we listen to the music here at BUST HQ pretty much all the time. Read More
  In an age when teenagers are running amuck, emancipating themselves from their parents left and right, one cool young dude remains loyal to his homestead and isn't afraid to admit he's a mama's boy. Fourteen-year old rapper Brian Bradley, better known as the Astronomical Kid, sends a clear message to ogling men everywhere: "Stop Looking at My Moms" . The insanely catchy single is just as danceable as it is adorable, but don't let Kid's age fool you, he knows how to treat a lady and staring her down on the street isn't part of it. Read More
Come on down to THE GALLERY this Thursday for CMJ's craziest party of the night featuring BUST-loving, KOOL KEITH & THE ULTRAMAGNETIC MC's.

Also spinning and spraying will be 87 Stick Up Kids, Purple Crush (back from LA), Cerebral Vortex, Johnny Nelson,  Lil' Friday, Cobra Krames, DirtyFinger, Marcus Price (Producer for Maluca), and Leo Justi. Whistles can be dampened at the bar with 2 for 1 Whiskey drinks from 10-12, and then doused from 2-2:30 at the OPEN BAR. Read More
  19-year-old Rye Rye is the first artist to be signed to acronym-loving M.I.A.’s record label N.E.E.T. (“Not in Education, Employment or Training.” The new video for “Sunshine” (featuring M.I.A.) is a mellow, lazy video shot on the streets and playgrounds of Baltimore. This great video is bound to conjure up some mixture of happiness and homesickness. The subdued beats, hazy colors and schoolyard choreography are a perfect cure for the early Fall blues. Read More
Regardless of how you might feel on our country's position in the battlefield, one thing is for sure. The men and women who courageously serve and sacrifice their lively hood on a daily basis to protect the good old US of A,  deserve a hard rocking salute. Thankfully, the USO has paired up with VH1 to turn those over worn military uniforms into groove loving dancing pants. Read More
