Freedom Rock with Japanther

BY mikki in Music

 Hey Rockers-- I have not been around much lately. (Although you can read my cover story with SECRET PERSON in next month's Bust!) But I wanted to post about this show and say some things about Japanther, and women, and the music scene. As you know, if you are in a band or go to shows, rock and roll sexism is alive and well! Brooklyn Vegan and other music sites regularly feature disparaging comments about the appearance of female musicians. Bands with women in them aren't taken seriously. Club owners and bookers assume a woman carrying an amp is someone's girlfriend. Read More
GIRLS RUN THE WORLD! Beyonce, you are a beautiful Queen and I love watching you break it down in post apocalyptic dance offs, chanting girl power lyrics over Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor". Beyonce, what more can I say? You're on a rearing black stallion in an all white suit. You're dancing in heels on sand. (A feat that I am sure is impossible, further convincing me that you are not in fact human, but some kind of amazonian deity of my dreams.)I love the way the light reflects off your Gareth Pugh shoes, and the crazy things you wear on your fingers. Please writhe around in sand more often. Read More

A few weeks ago we posted the last video created for Peaches "I Feel Cream" release for the song "Mud" but apparently there were two separate videos made for this song, and below is the 2nd, and it's pretty Fierce! We asked Peaches about it, and here's what she had to say: BUST: Who made the video, and why were two versions done? Peaches: Jasmin Tarasin made this video. She built a pit with a tractor to have the girls fight in.  I met her when she asked me to be involved in her live installation project called LIVE. Read More
What do you get when you combine mid-2000 R&B duo Nina Sky, with the Witch House ladies of CREEP? Some dope dark track. Slow CREEP moody-electro goodness, with the sweet twin magic melodies of Nina Sky. Perfect music for the rainy NYC weather we've been getting. Time to turn on the Christmas lights in your room, sprawl out on the floor- and get real angsty and melancholy with it. CREEP consists of two NY based DJ's, Lauren Flax, and Lauren Dillard. Read More
