GWAR, the horrific metal band infamous for its blood and guts-stained performances, may have just made metal history. It now has a female frontwoman leading the band: Vulvatron!
If you've ever seen the band live you have probably been sprayed with fake blood, and if you're the squeamish type I wouldn't recommend Googling GWAR. But ever since the beloved leader of the band, Dave Brockie (aka Oderus Ungus) died of an accidental heroin overdose earlier this ... Read More
So, it's September. I've been in denial of this fact for a few weeks because a) wasn't it just 90 degrees and humid a week ago here on the east coast? and b) I'm not going back to school so it can't be fall yet, right?
Alas, it is now more than two weeks into September and the official first day of fall is just within reach. It is finally time to unearth your favorite scarves, mittens, leather jackets and knee boots.
Over here at BUST we wanted to craft you ... Read More
Our favorite psychedelic bubblegum feminist pop punk band out of Seattle, Tacocat, is back with another amazing music video for their new song "Bridge to Hawaii." You might remember them from their hilarious video for "Crimson Wave" (a pop punk surf rock anthem for periods) that was complete with some bodacious green screen surfing and dancing human crabs.
"Bridge to Hawaii" is another hit off the band's second album NVM, released on Hardly Art, which came ... Read More

After receiving less than favorable reviews of her new single "Go" from her loyal fan base, Canadian singer-songwriter Grimes (or Claire Elise Boucher) has decided to scrap her entire new album and start from square one.
The song was originally written for Rihanna, according to The New York Times, so it has more of a pop/mainstream feel than Grimes' previous work. Overall, it’s a huge departure from her underground electronic sound fans have grown to ... Read More
Hey Ladies! There is no doubt that Mz 007 will have you dancin' and responding "I'm Important" for at least the rest of today! The Princess of the Lou, because she hails from St.Louis, MO, released a new video late last month that is clad with a sassy-and-I-know-it attitude. The now LA based rapper has been in the game for about 5 years now and is finally starting to get recognition for her serious skills. The video is a celebration of self and an "I'm coming ...

Last we heard from Californian rock ‘n’ roller Ty Segall, he had toned down his tendencies toward fuzzy, noisy garage-rock and opted for a quieter, simpler approach that channeled retro folk vibes, on 2013’s Sleeper. It wasn’t too unexpected, seeing as how the 27-year-old has explored countless genres since he started performing solo in 2008 (and don’t get me started on his six other bands).
With Manipulator, Segall recalls his psychedelic, ... Read More
If you're going to pick one, The Prettiots are just the band you would want to write a brutally honest ode to all the dummies you dated in high school. Made up of spunky front woman Kay Kasparhauser, Rachel Trachtenburg (of Supercute!) and Lulu Prat (Tangiers), the New York based band is a bit of uke-pop, indie, and pop rock rolled into one cute package, with some serious attitude.
The video for "Boys (I dated in high school)", directed by noted ... Read More
Last year, BANKS quietly dropped her initial EPs Fall Over and London, causing mass hysteria fueled by torch single “This Is What It Feels Like.” From there it was BANKS BANKS BANKS, commonly called the “female Weeknd,” yet her full-length Goddess surpasses any comparisons thrown her way.
Some familiar tunes from the first EPs are present on Goddess—including the dismally gorgeous ... Read More

Karen O’s solo debut was stolen from her. Though Crush Songs, out today on Cult Records, is the Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer’s first official solo album, fans have most likely already heard KO at Home, the 14 home-recorded songs that were posted on the Internet in 2006. Originally a private gift for TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, KO at Home was leaked when someone found the CD in Sitek’s apartment after he’d moved out.
In that context, ... Read More
