With a ’90s pop/rock attitude and a vintage style reminiscent of the ’50s and ’60s, the Regrettes is a teenage band made up of kids who are clearly wise beyond their years. Hailing from L.A., the foursome includes 16-year-old frontwoman Lydia Night, 19-year-old Genessa Gariano on guitar, 19-year-old Sage Nicole on bass, and 18-year-old Maxx Morando on drums. And together, they create a sound that is vulnerable while still giving zero fucks. “I grew up listening to tons of ’50s and ’60s music. Buddy Holly, Patsy Cline,… Read more

Beyoncé Is Going To Be The First Black Woman To Headline Coachella

By Samantha Mercado  In Music  On Jan 04, 2017

Brochella no more--or at least one step closer to an actually co-ed Coachella. Leave it to Queen Bey to kick out the music festivals’ glass ceiling. Beyoncé will be the first female headliner at Coachella in a decade, the last one being Bjork in 2007. What's even more amazing than that? She will also be the first ever black woman to headline Coachella. Coachella’s not-so-subtle history of having an overwhelming number of male centered acts has not slipped past public attention (hence the nickname ‘Bro-chella’).… Read more

Fiona Apple Skewers Trump with Christmas Parody

By Rachel Withers  In Music  On Dec 20, 2016

On Sunday, Fiona Apple performed her hilarious and fitting parody, "Trump’s Nuts Roasting On An Open Fire" at the “We Rock With Standing Rock” benefit concert. Her version of the classic "The Christmas Song" skewers Trump with brilliantly painful twists on the famous lyrics, such as “everybody knows some money and entitlement / can help to make the season white / mothers of color with their kids out of sight / will find it hard to sleep at night”. Lyrics and a (gentler) pre-recorded version first appeared on Apple’s… Read more

The Julie Ruin at Irving Plaza, Two Days After the Election

By Marisa Crawford  In Music  On Dec 01, 2016

Photo by Shervin Lainez On Thursday, November 10th, two days after the election, I went to see former Bikini Kill frontwoman Kathleen Hanna’s newest band, The Julie Ruin, play at Irving Plaza in New York City. I had bought the tickets months in advance and planned to go with two friends who had both grown up listening to riot grrrl; I expected it to be fun and nostalgic. When I realized the show would be happening two days after the election, I thought it would be a sweetly celebratory experience to ring in the… Read more

Jones, who lead the Brooklyn-based band Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, released her first record at 40 and was nominated for her first Grammy at 57, proving that success can be achieved at any age.

Princess Nokia is unstoppable. As she continues her tour around the country, the New York City rapper recently surprised fans with two new music videos from her latest album 1992: witchy girl-anthem "Brujas" and gamer girl inspired "Kitana."

The video is heavily influenced by Yoruba religion — including clips modeled after Yemaya, the female water spirit who represents the mother of all things. With her gang of witches, they cast spells, Nokia co-directed and… Read more
Photo via Instagram Nicki Minaj fans, get your headphones ready. She's back and better than ever. Hopeful fans were duped last month by Minaj when she tweeted about surprise-dropping a new album (nothing was ever released). The rap superstar hasn't released any new music in a while so we're glad that this new track has broke through Minaj's radio silence. Her latest remix slays to the tune of Rae Sremmurd's viral banger "Black Beatles." Appropriately titled "Black Barbies," Nicki's verses are cool and ruthless. "Island… Read more
The Piano Lesson by Henriëtte Ronner-Knip, 1897 One does not have to be a fan of classical music to be familiar with the works of French composers Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. The two rivals were part of the Impressionism movement in classical music, a movement inspired by Impressionist painters like Monet, Manet, and Renoir and poets such as Verlaine and Baudelaire. They were also renowned cat lovers who famously allowed their feline muses to prowl at liberty amongst their papers while composing such masterpieces… Read more
While many of us were studying algebra and going out for the school play at fourteen, Willow, Lena, Dea, and Rihana of the band Harsh Crowd have already played alongside Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill and Mac DeMarco. Not to mention, earlier this year they got a shoutout on Twitter by the one and only Gloria Steinem. That’s right, four 14-year-olds from New York City have already done what many artists work a lifetime to accomplish. The group met in 2013 at the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls in Brooklyn, NY and since… Read more

Beyonce performed at the Country Music Awards Wednesday night and, like everything else she does, it was amazing. Bey teamed up with the Dixie Chicks to perform her country-inspired song "Daddy Lessons" from her revolutionary album Lemonade; and although that seems like a dream come true to a lot of music listeners, not all country fans were thrilled.

In the upcoming documentary L7: Pretend We’re Dead (directed by Sarah Price and produced by Blue Hats Creative), feminists rockers like Joan Jett and Brody Dalle discussed the iconic grunge band. One highlight is Shirley Manson of Garbage, explaining in this clip her love for L7. “I had never seen a band before L7 that was all female fronted, all the members were female, they wrote their own material, and played their own material — I had never really come across that,” says Manson.

Moby Goes Post-Punk On 'These Systems Are Failing': BUST Review

By Michael Levine  In Music  On Oct 27, 2016

Moby has returned and he’s angry as hell! Feeling this way is very understandable, considering the turbulent world we live in. Moby’s issue is that many of our systems — such as government, business, manufacturing industries, and technology — have failed the people on the planet. Known for his ambient, electro pop sounds since the ‘90s, Moby instead draws from punk, post-punk, new wave, euphoric rave, and yelling on his new album with the Void Pacific Choir, These Systems Are Failing (MUTE Records). Yeah, there’s a lot… Read more
The discussion of women's bodies in politics has been more present today, in the midst of the 2016 election, than ever before. Not only are we seeing political parties bash heads over contraceptive rights and access to abortion, individuals such as Donald Trump— who made national headlines a few weeks back for saying that he’d “grab [a woman] by the pussy”— have made it clear that sexism is alive and well in the political circuit. Many have reacted to Trump’s comments, as well as running mate Mike Pence’s views on… Read more

SHIRA's 'Subtle Creature' Is A Must-Listen: BUST Review

By Gabrielle Diekhoff  In Music  On Oct 26, 2016

“It is 7 A.M. at night.” This, as we know, is an impossible phenomenon. This string of seemingly nonsensical words proposes a concept that is not a product of foolishness but rather of genius; they’re unhesitatingly oxymoronic, clashing willingly, knowingly, and are presented with an attention-grabbing firmness, an unwrinkled staccato, repeatedly. Miraculously, these lyrics manage to put into words how it feels to listen to Brooklyn-based artist SHIRA’s new album, Subtle Creature. Like these lyrics, which are snagged… Read more
Vulnicura (2015) Björk continues to amaze us with the release of the VR trailer for “Family” — one of the ethereal tracks from her 2015 album,Vulnicura.

There’s nothing we love more than women who transcend the music binary and Gland, a punk trio from New Orleans, does exactly that and more. Members Kallie, Farra, Switch, and Jean make up the feminist-as-fuck punk band which released the music video for their song “Cram It” this past weekend, off their first album Neurotica.

Norah Jones Returns With 'Day Breaks': BUST Interview

By Dave Steinfeld  In Music  On Oct 17, 2016

When we last left Norah Jones, she had released her fifth album, Little Broken Hearts. Her chief collaborator on that disc was Danger Mouse, producer extraordinaire and member of the bands Gnarls Barkley and Broken Bells. Little Broken Hearts found Jones moving further away from her trademark piano sound and writing mainly about the breakup of a relationship. But that was more than four years ago now. Not that Jones hasn’t stayed busy since then; she has. At the end of 2013, she and Green Day frontman Billie Joe… Read more
Indie-electronic band Survival Guide's song "One To One" is a haunting and emotional study of the dark side of relationships. Today, we're premiering the brand new music video from the band.

If you look up the word “badass” in the dictionary, chances are you’d find a picture of Björk’s 1997 album, Homogenic. The Icelandic musician and actress has never been one to stay inside the lines — both in terms of her art and her personal life. And in an interview with UK’s, the Evening Standard, the eclectic songbird and Grammy nominated artist shared her thoughts on sex and feminism after 23 years in the business.“I like a lot of erotic books and films but I just don’t find the kind of Las Vegas… Read more
via Facebook/Tomboi, photo by Dennis HoForget everything pop-country told you about Southern identity. Sure, plenty of us love shootin’ whiskey and consider cowboy boots suitable attire for any occasion, but life below the Mason-Dixon Line is more than truck nuts, rebel flags, and backwards legislation like HB2. Countless underground femme and queer musicians from The Bible Belt are on the front lines and redefining the sound of their homeland. Whether it’s creating an intentional space for folks of all identities to… Read more

Why Are There So Few Women In Rock?

via Facebook/St. Vincent, photo by Joshua MellinIt’s a late July evening in Seoul. On a scale of one to ten of sweaty discomfort, summer in South Korea ranks about eleven. But despite my clinging shirt and the fuzz of hair plastered to my greasy forehead, I am happy. Why? I am standing in a queue to see St. Vincent play on her Digital Witness tour.

via Facebook/White Stripes, photo by Autumn De Wilde It was a dark day when the White Stripes broke up on February 2, 2011. Since then, Jack and Meg White have apparently kept their distance from each other while Jack White has launched a solo career and Meg White has disappeared from public life. Things seemed tense between the two ex-spouses/fictional siblings/former bandmates, with Jack saying a few not-so-nice things about Meg in interviews and Meg, well, disappearing. But now, the White Stripes have reunited for a… Read more

Olympia Hardcore Band G.L.O.S.S. Calls It Quits

Photo by Renate Winter “At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter to me what these critics or do-gooders think about this band because it’s not about them,” G.L.O.S.S. frontwoman, Sadie Switchblade, told me when I interviewed her over the summer. “While it is really great to make some money off of this band, the crux of playing in G.L.O.S.S. is about trying to exist in opposition to all of these elements of the world that would seek to round off our jagged edges and commodify us, to make us digestible and… Read more

Kim Gordon Slays On Her New Single "Murdered Out"

By Eleonor Botoman  In Music  On Sep 13, 2016

Kim Gordon, the badass voice behind Sonic Youth and most recently Body/Head, dropped a new solo single yesterday called “Murdered Out.” Always at the forefront of no wave and experimental rock, Gordon is a force of nature in this new song, fascinated by the "black matte spray" of L.A. low-rider car culture. Gordon, in collaboration with pop producer Justin Raisen, had a lot of freedom with this song. As she explained to Rolling Stone, when she was shown the original music, Gordon decided that it was “aesthetically more… Read more

For the past three seasons of the hit Comedy Central series, Ilana Wexler and Abbi Abrams have captivated audiences with their over-the-top antics.

The Shaggs were three sisters, Dot, Betty and Helen Wiggin, hailing from Fremont, New Hampshire, who formed a band, at their father’s insistence, in 1968. Daddy (Austin Wiggin, Jr.), after much practicing from the girls, paid for one recording session and the pressing of what would become The Shaggs' weird and wonderful — and only — album Philosophy Of The World (1969). It’s hard to say what exactly the Wiggins sisters were aiming for, as their sound is discordant as well as strangely musical in a left-of-field way.… Read more

1992 represents the year Destiny Frasqueri was born and New York City was a completely different time back then. Gentrification wasn't pushing people out of their neighborhoods with skyrocketing rent. There was more violence and crime, sure, but there was also the growth of a vibrant hip-hop scene, a scene which for many no longer exists as New York becomes a harder place to live and create in. Fashion designers, magazines and photographers have been reviving 90s culture for years now but its all watered down to… Read more
