I was lucky enough to ask her a few questions about her musical background and experiences breaking into the DJ scene. Gabrielle, you’ve been DJing professionally all over NYC for a few years now. First off, how did you first get into records? Admittedly, I didn’t begin DJing with vinyl. I… Read more

This time last year, fans were bumping the highly anticipated mixtape 1992 by Princess Nokia. Today, Princess Nokia re-released the project, but this time through her label Rough Trade Records and as a deluxe album. If 1992 the mixtape was a love letter to life in New York City for ’90s babies who grew up in the ’00s, then 1992 the album is sort of like a P.S. of eight additional tracks: Bart SimpsonTomboyKitanaBrujasMineExcellentSaggy Denim ft.

Indie-Rock Superstar Neko Case Invites Us Inside Her Cozy Vermont Farmhouse And Opens Up About Depression, Dogs, And Doing What She Loves "When you’ve got a barn, you’ve got a place to skate in the winter,” says Neko Case, explaining why there’s a full-sized skateboard half-pipe in the barn on her property. It’s not actually hers — it belongs to her roommate and best friend, “Stuntman Nate” — but the half-pipe is only one of many weird, amazing artifacts scattered around her Vermont farm, where Case has graciously… Read more
Alex Lahey’s “Every Day’s The Weekend” will make you feel like Saturday every day. “Fuck work, you’re here/Every day’s the weekend,” she sings. And with the jobs featured in her music video, you can’t really blame her for the sentiment. The Australian singer-songwriter takes us through shitty, albeit interesting, jobs ranging from a sleepy pickle inspector to a disappointing cake decorator. The video is super adorable, and the song is definitely dance-party worthy. This pop-rock single is an ode to wanting the weekend… Read more
It’s official! Solange will be directing the music video for SZA’s “The Weekend” off her album Ctrl! SZA confirmed with USA Today what fans had been hoping for for months. When Solange and SZA planned a hangout on social media in July, fans knew something amazing was on the way. Solange posted a video of her lip syncing to SZA’s Love Galore on Instagram, and SZA tweeted her fangirling over the video and proposing they meet up. Now, they're going to combine their creative genius and make a music video for “The Weekend.”… Read more
After a four year hiatus, New York-based electro-pop band the Blow is back with a new album, Brand New Abyss.

By Camille A. Collins  In Music  On Aug 29, 2017

Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park exploded with color, exuberance and sound as revelers lit the scene for the annual Afropunk Festival this weekend. Dubbed the “other” black experience, the gathering has detonated since its inception in 2005, attracting renowned artists and a variegated crowd of local and international revelers.

Lizzo's "Water Me" Is Your New Self-Love Anthem

By Violet Marmur  In Music  On Aug 21, 2017

If you haven’t heard of Lizzo yet, you’re welcome. The Minneapolis-based alt hip-hop artist suffuses her songs with empowering lyrics and foot-tapping beats. Her latest single, "Water Me," might be her best track yet. “Water Me," as the title hints, is all about nourishment — specifically yourself. Produced by Grammy-nominated producer Ricky Reed, energetic drums and melodious synth and bass accompany liberating lyrics: “I don't get dehydrated, I moisturize it daily / I am my inspiration, I am my inspiration." Lizzo is… Read more
In some good news for your Friday, Bonnie Tyler will sing your drunk karaoke go-to “Total Eclipse of the Heart” during the actual solar eclipse. However, “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” is in fact longer than the total eclipse of the sun, which will last for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. (There are several versions of “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” ranging from in length from 3 minutes 49 seconds for a 2005 re-recording to 6 minutes 59 seconds for the original album version.) No worries, though, the song has been adjusted to… Read more

Kesha Has Risen, And Dr. Luke Better Start Praying

By Hannah Rose  In Music  On Aug 08, 2017

Even though Kesha’s nearly-three-year legal battle to free herself from producer Dr. Luke continues, our wildgirl is finally back in the game, and as someone who has loved basically every single song Kesha has ever put out, I’m ready for shit to get lit. I flung my limbs around mosh-pit-style to “Dancing With Tears In My Eyes” after my high school boyfriend dumped me. I cried to the “The Harold Song” on repeat when my 9-month fuckboy dumped me. I drove around blaring “Last Goodbye” as I was contemplating breaking up… Read more
We stopped by the Bowery Ballroom to check out the all-star female super group Guns N' Hoses as they celebrated the 30th anniversary of Guns N' Roses' Appetite For Destruction (July 21, 1987). The group comprised of Erin Marsz (Axl Hose), Charlene Kaye (Gash), Julia Adamy (Muff McKagan), Emmy Wildwood (Lizzy Stradlin), and Gina Ilasi (Stephanie Adler) absoltuely rocked the term "Girl Power." What is it that made you guys decided you wanted to cover Guns N' Roses in the first place? When did this obsession begin? Erin… Read more
BUST sat down with the beautiful Liliana Saumet of Bomba Estéreo and discussed all things music and Colombia. The interview was conducted in Spanish, and has been translated to English — scroll down to the bottom for the Spanish version! Check out their new album, Ayo, dropping August 11th, 2017. There are a lot of tropical influences in your music — it reminds me of [Colombian city] Cartagena! Would you say you pull a lot of your influences from a particular part of Colombia? Yes, we mix a lot of Caribbean influences,… Read more

If you’re unsure where to start looking, or just want some new music to flesh out your fem-power playlist, here are a few tracks to get you started.1. “I Am Woman” by Helen Reddy You can’t go wrong with a song that starts out with the phrase “I am woman, hear me roar,” and this 1972 classic only gets better from there.

How Solange Combines Music, Art And Activism

By Isabel S. Dieppa  In Music  On Aug 01, 2017

Defy and Enlighten. Those are the best two words to describe Solange's presence at Pitchfork Music Festival. The entire festival was jam-packed with high energy and activist-themed performances, and the common theme of the this year's lineup was the intersection of music and activism. It was present in Pitchfork's Beats>Bullet initiative, and in the performances of artists like A Tribe Called Quest and Madame Gandhi. Solange’s performance, however, went beyond entertainment or spectacle. Her performance was a work of… Read more
Miss Eaves gave a first listen of her new album Feminasty through NPR, and it couldn’t be more amazing. She let us have an early listen, but the official release date is August 4th. The Brooklyn-based rapper killed it with tracks like “Fuccboi Salute” where she raps, “Me and my clique, when these pricks coming through/ Yelling 'FUCK YOU' it's the fuccboi salute!” I knew it was going to be good when I first heard “Thunder Thighs” earlier this summer, and she did not disappoint. Every song on the album is gold. Miss… Read more

The whole video is a collection of ultra famous boys doing mundane yet adorable things like brushing their teeth and reading, with pink everything. The song’s chorus is “I was busy thinkin' 'bout boys, boys, boys / Always busy dreamin' 'bout boys, boys, boys / Head is spinnin' thinkin' 'bout boys.” The video has tons famous boys like Joe Jonas, Brendon Urie, Tom Daley, Jay Park, Stormzy, Riz Ahmed, and so many more. The video is directed by… Read more

Regina Spektor Plays Central Park "On A Perfect Summer Night"

By Erika W. Smith  In Music  On Jul 28, 2017

Regina Spektor’s piano-driven music was the perfect fit for Central Park Summer Stage’s outdoor concert series, something that Spektor charmingly remarked upon several times as she played last night, and reiterated on Instagram after the show: “Last night was as dreamy as playing in Central Park on a perfect summer night could have been... thank you for all the love and fun and magic! I'll never forget the magic garden." After Spektor played her opener, “Folding Chair,” under an overcast, just-stopped-drizzling sky,… Read more

The California-based dark post-punk/deathrock band Ötzi is back with their first-ever LP (ready to be released this fall), and we are thrilled to premiere one of their songs, “Charms.” “Charms was inspired by fading fear-based traditions and how we still relate to them in our lives,” band member Gina Marie tells BUST. “In the video we decided to focus on the flip side of fear, and asked our friends to show off their own good luck charms and symbols of hope.” Their official music video shows people showing off their… Read more
Lana Del Rey inspires pretty mixed reactions among BUST readers and staff, but a recent interview in which she says that she uses witchcraft in attempt to rid the world of President Trump may make you like her a little more, if you’re not already a fan. Del Rey released her latest album, Lust For Life, on the waning crescent moon...the same day that witches worldwide took part in a binding spell intended to prevent Trump from doing harm. On a previous waning crescent moon on February 24, she’d asked her followers to… Read more
If you know your punk history, you know the name Alice Bag is one of significance. As a Latina, and as frontperson and vocalist of the iconic band the Bags, Alice Bag pioneered the Los Angeles punk scene in the 1970s. Breaking into an underground scene, which predominantly consisted of sweaty white dudes thrashing about, Bag was confrontational, political, and brazenly feminist. She paved the way for artists, particularly women and people of color, who aspired to make music that deviated from and aggressively defied… Read more
Pussy Riot, the badass feminist punk collective, has started a Kickstarter to help with their newest project. According to the site, the project is “a breakthrough immersive theatre production to remind us what is worth fighting for.” Pussy Riot has teamed up with Les Enfants Terribles to make an immersive experience that will allow participants to feel what it's like to be in a Russian Prison.

A culture of consent is not something you hear about often especially in summer music festivals; however, the people from Our Music My Body are looking to change that. “Our Music My Body is a group of people working to create a safer space at music festivals,” said prevention and education specialist Matt Walsh. “We want everyone to be able to have a good time create an environment that is free of sexual harassment and promotes consent.” The organization is created by two anti-violence agencies in Chicago: Between… Read more
The future is female, fierce, and dropped some dope words of truth at the Chicago Pitchfork festival June 14. Who better to kick off the festival this past weekend than singer and writer Madame Gandhi? No stranger to the Pitchfork music festival, Kiran Gandhi, also known by the stage name Madame Gandhi, first came to Pitchfork in 2013 as the drummer for MIA. 2017 was an even more eventful year for Gandhi being that she was the opener, kicking off the festival with her vision of a feminist utopia. Fun fact, I too was at… Read more

From their debut LP Chartreuse, featuring Patty Schemel of Hole, to their most recent album Tsuki, plus countless EPs, Sharkmuffin has been hard at work the past five years. Just… Read more
Beth Ditto has never not been in a band. The self-described "fat, feminist lesbian from Arkansas" grew up with six siblings and 100 or so Bee-Gees-worshipping cousins. That's a big band. Then, of course, there was The Gossip, who were together for 17 years before they split in 2016. Ditto's first solo album, Fake Sugar, debuted in June after some very tantalizing video previews. On the record's first single, "Fire," Ditto reminds us that she's a rock 'n' roll Dolly Parton at her core. (She also plays her bubble gum… Read more

Leikeli47's "Miss Me" Video Fits Her No Bulls**t Anthem

By Seeta Charan  In Music  On Jul 12, 2017

While maintaining the air of mystery she’s created for herself, Leikeli47 released a music video to accompany her recently-released song "Miss Me." In the video she keeps her face covered and works in a bodega where all of the products bear her name or face. She first entered our radar when her song “F**k the Summer Up,” which Jay-Z co-signed, was included in his playlist on Tidal and he named the playlist after her song. Leikeli47 has managed to keep her full name, age, and appearance private by always wearing a ski… Read more

Paula Abdul's Not Missing A Beat While On First Tour In 25 Years

By Erin DeGregorio  In Music  On Jul 11, 2017

Songwriter, choreographer, and former American Idol judge Paula Abdul has finally dusted off her dancing shoes and graced us all with her presence and talents after a long 25 years. The last time she went on tour was in 1991-1992 for her international Under My Spell Tour, which was named by a fan from an MTV contest submission. Now she is opening up for boy band New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) on their current Total Package Tour – and it’s nothing short of awesome. The announcement came as a surprise when NKOTB made… Read more
Céline Dion is a queen. Whether it’s recently posing naked for Vogue Magazine or racking up those dollar signs with her choice of wardrobe ensembles ($108,000+), Dion knows how to slay, even without a microphone in hand. But if you still don’t believe me, watch and listen to some of her on-stage performances – such as “The Power of the Dream” at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, “That’s The Way It Is” with *NSYNC during her “All the Way... A Decade of Song” TV special on CBS in 1999, and “The Show Must Go On”… Read more

Kinderwhore And Courtney Love: A Retrospective

By Sunni Johnson  In Music  On Jul 10, 2017

I have a funny memory of being 14 in an Express Peter Pan collar dress, standing on my Sailor Moon bedset, screeching weird poetry. Sure, I had been inspired before during my elementary school Robin Hood peasant blouses and archery phase, begging my mum for Celtic jewelry at the Renfaire. Feeling very profound in my newfound angst when my middle school wiles kicked in, the world suddenly felt less whimsical. Consequently, my teen development happened at the peak of “grunge” on ‘90s Gen X MTV, much to the dismay of my… Read more
You know that almost-but-never relationship you had (or have, bless your heart) that kept you coming back for more as it unraveled your sanity (and, in my case, elicited a nine-month stream of subtweets)? So do Brooklyn-based “queer country trailblazers” Karen & the Sorrows, and their single “I Was Just Your Fool” from their upcoming album, The Narrow Place (out August 25th), will have you swaying back and forth in solidarity with that heart-wrenching feeling. The sound aligns with old-school country but incorporates… Read more

Artery Brings Music To Any Space

By Haley Maiden  In Music  On Jul 05, 2017

I just started playing saxophone in this soul/folk band (I’m really bad at describing music). We were invited by an artist collective organization called Artery to play a secret apartment show. Artery was started by music lovers with the intention of bringing artists, performers, and audiences together in an intimate way, with the hope of sparking a connection that could inspire further collaboration. I enter a tiny Bushwick apartment and am warmly greeted by fellow performers. We huddle together drinking beer while… Read more
BUST has the exclusive premiere of Kim Boekbinder’s video for “Head Bitch In Charge (H.B.I.C.),” and this is sure to be your power anthem and fashion inspiration for the summer. Within the first 30 seconds, I was ready to throw on the weirdest shit I could find in my closet, sashay over to a warehouse party, and bless the dancefloor with limb-swinging moves. (So I’ve never actually been to a warehouse party, but I did watch that episode of Girls. I think it is my scene. Pls invite me.) "H.B.I.C." features a wildly… Read more
Annie Hart has announced her first solo album, Impossible Accomplice, to drop July 14. One of the album's eight tracks, "Run To You," can be heard for the first time here: “I am really pleased with how it turned out," she says of the track. "For me, it really combines that soft comfortable feeling of being with someone, and there’s music playing and this push and pull of emotions, the quiet of when they send you positive signals, and then the storm of torment that erupts when you realize it’s just not going to work and… Read more

Punk Musician Alice Bag Is Making Another Album - And You Can Help

By Brianna Kirkham  In Music  On Jun 26, 2017

When Alice Bag founded her Los Angeles-based band Bags in 1977, it became one of the first punk groups ever led by a Chicana artist. Now, she's reaching out to help fund her second LP following her 2016 self-titled album Alice Bag. In her Kickstarter campaign, she states, "I'm not a fan of corporate backing for the arts (especially when my music is critical of the establishment), but I do believe that a small, engaged community can achieve big things." After working with many bands and writing two books, Bag says… Read more

The Regrettes: The Modern-Day Riot Grrrl Group In Concert

By Seeta Charan  In Music  On Jun 26, 2017

Earlier this year we got a taste of the Regrettes when they did an interview with us but I had the privilege of seeing them in concert and I couldn't be more impressed. It only took one song to fall in love with the Regrettes, and now I’m stuck waiting for more with only one killer album to keep me at bay. The Regrettes are a four-person punk band who use their music to push people to be honest about who they are and what they're feeling. Their first album, entitled Feel Your Feeling Fool!, is filled with songs where… Read more

BUST has the exclusive scoop on Nadine Khouri’s new EP, Catapult (set to be released on June 30th, 2017 via One Flash Records), and - goddamn - get ready to feel some type of way. Khouri's sultry, melancholic voice has the ability to soothe your soul and break your heart at the same time. It pinpoints that stomach-lurching resignation you feel when falling both in and out of love. One of two exclusive B-sides off Catapult, Khouri's cover of “Bird On The Wire,” sees Khouri reverse gender roles to cover a classic song by… Read more
Legendary German band CAN (Michael Karoli, Jaki Liebezeit, Irmin Schmidt, and Holger Czukay) formed in 1967 and released their first album, Monster Movie, two years later. Since their debut, CAN has always pushed the limits of modern rock music by incorporating electronic, jazz, world beats, and modern classical genres. Their influence on future generations of musicians is wide, ranging from Joy Division, Pavement, PIL, Siouxsie And The Banshees, and Sonic Youth to the Flaming Lips, The Mars Volta, and Radiohead, to… Read more
In the realm of indie music, Sadie Dupuis has become a household name. As the frontperson (or, as Dupuis jokingly refers to herself, "frontdemon") of the critically-acclaimed grunge-revivalist favorite, Speedy Ortiz, Dupuis is well-known for her complex lyricism, grittiness, unabashed passion for social justice, and overall admirable bad-assery. Considering that Speedy hasn’t released an album since 2015, it would be an understatement to say that fans/the music world, in general, were blessed the day she released her… Read more
