Why Beyoncé's #Beychella Performance Is So Important

By Byshera Williams  In Music  On Apr 18, 2018

Last weekend, Beyoncé stepped out on the Coachella stage and completely redefined what it means to be a headliner. Coachella has gained a reputation as one of the most well-known music festivals over its nineteen years. Every year, thousands flock to Indio, California, the home of the festival, to watch a plethora of musical guests and headliners, ranging from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, The Cure, Kanye West, to Lady Gaga. Despite the range of musical genres displayed by past headliners, Beyoncé is the first black… Read more

Caitlin Canty's "Motel Bouquet" Is A Hopeful Musical Journey

By Michael Levine  In Music  On Apr 16, 2018

CAITLIN CANTY Motel Bouquet(Tone Tree Music) Singer-songwriter Caitlin Canty has just released her fourth album, Motel Bouquet, recorded in music city, Nashville, TN. Canty has a mournful, ethereal, haunting, voice that sometimes resembles Norah Jones, Gillian Welch, and Chan Marshall (Cat Power). Her songs posses a feel of tough street smarts meets vulnerability and longing. Musically, the sound is based around Canty's acoustic guitar, and its lo-fi, Americana twang perfectly supports her heartfelt lyrics. Tracks like… Read more
We've been huge fans of soul siren Betty Davis for awhile now, and we're very excited to see the new documentary, Betty — They Say I'm Different which will have it's US premiere at the Red Bull Music Festival on May 23rd. So we decided to dug up this interview we did with her back in 2007. Enjoy! Mention the name “Betty Davis” and most people will either comment on how good she was in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? or say that they liked that song about her eyes. But feminist electro-musician Peaches has a decidedly… Read more
Between Cardi B’s album drop and news that L7 will be releasing their first album in 20 years, it’s been an incredible week for music. Today, you can feast your ears and your eyes on Janelle Monáe’s sensual ode to the vagina, filled with lush vocals featuring Grimes and some soft lady loving between Monáe and Tessa Thompson. “Pynk” is the latest track from Monáe’s third album, Dirty Computer, which will be released April 27. Two other singles, “Django Jane” and the Prince-inspired bisexual anthem “Make Me Feel,” were… Read more

By BUST Magazine  In Music  On Apr 05, 2018

Welcome to our music reviews from our April/May 2018 issue! Late March and April bring us new music from great artists like Frankie Cosmos, Jean Grae and Quelle Chris, and Sunflower Bean. FRANKIE COSMOSVessel(Sub Pop) Whether she’s writing about eating leftover rice late at night, her phone dying, or wasting time on a train, Frankie Cosmos songwriter Greta Kline has a knack for weaving poetry out of small, simple moments. Though she’s moved away from home recording, the prolific songwriter (Vessel marks her 52nd… Read more
Rachael Sage, a New York-based alt-pop artist, has returned with her 13th album Myopia. The album centers itself on the idea of self-assurance and being comfortable within one’s own skin, but with the current cultural climate, there is also a thread of paranoia. With a bold emphasis on Sage’s guitar playing, instead of her usual piano-driven work, and contributions from Hoboken-based guitarist James Mastro, this album is gritty, complex, and truly stands out from her other work. We're excited to premiere the single… Read more
I didn't quite know what to expect as I prepared to head off to Treefort Music Festival in Boise, Idaho, but what I found exceeded all of MY expectations. The five-day festival full of music, food, yoga, skating and so much more was like an adult playground for all of the senses. The strong sense of community throughout the city of Boise was inspiring, uplifting, and infectious. With so much to do, it was easy to be overwhelmed, but the days just seemed to flow with one amazing activity after another. I discovered some… Read more
I like to think that I am the only fan of certain artists. I like to think that I am among Liz Phair’s biggest fans and cosmically deserving of a ticket to one of a handful of intimate performances. Last night, I prayed that the indifferent universe would repay 25 years of allegiance with a digital ticket. I wrote this essay, set my intentions, and had a dream about the show: I brought my mother, she was dressed like a hipster in a stonewashed denim jacket and red knit cap. She bought me a Girlysound/Exile in Guyville… Read more

Amara La Negra Is Making Music And Calling Out Colorism

By BUST Magazine  In Music  On Mar 28, 2018

It only took the premiere episode of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Miami for breakout star Amara La Negra to charm her way into viewers’ hearts. But the Miami-born Dominican singer didn’t do it in the typical table-flipping-drink-tossing way that usually turns reality stars into GIFs—she did the exact opposite. On the first episode of the series, about aspiring music artists and their love lives, La Negra requested constructive criticism from potential producer Young Hollywood. But when he suggested she be “a little bit more… Read more
As a relative nube when it comes to experimental music, I was slightly trepidacious about attending the Borealis fest in Bergen Norway this month, mostly because my uninformed views expected four days of “Nails On A Chalkboard.” Luckily for me, while there was plenty of noise, it was all interesting, and the acts were incredibly diverse and surprising. The festival, founded in 2004, covers everything from string quartets to avant-garde opera, noise, spoken word, field recordings, chamber music and dance hall. In… Read more

There Shouldn't Be Shame In Liking “Girl Music"

By Julie Kocsis  In Music  On Mar 27, 2018

Ah, middle school — an awkward time of change and newness for all. Perfectly clear complexions become pocked with zits, a once-simple interaction with a person of the opposite gender becomes nervous and overthought, and Saturdays that were once spent “playing” are now spent on more serious things, like getting your ears pierced at Claire’s. For most, a shift in the type of entertainment one consumes changes around this time too. While I liked music as a kid (Disney, musicals, etc.), it wasn’t until I was about 12 years… Read more
Terra Lopez — leading lady of the band Rituals of Mine, the label Bitchwave, and the art installation called THIS IS WHAT IT FEELS LIKE — is a powerhouse who is changing not only the music industry but any community she touches. Her passion for elevating women and fostering growth in the community is making a huge impact across the nation. In today's culture, it is so necessary for people with platforms to use them in way that sheds light on important issues. We sat down with Lopez to talk about the important work she… Read more

Your Inside Guide To Treefort Music Fest 2018

By Janeth Gonda  In Music  On Mar 21, 2018

We are so excited to be attending the seventh annual Treefort Music Fest in Boise, Idaho! The festival, which can be compared to SXSW, spreads across the entire city of Boise, featuring over 450 bands in the best venues across the city. Throughout the five days, there is a number of things to do beyond seeing music including yoga, comedy, skateboarding, food, a beer fest, kids' activities and more. With so much to do, it can be easy to get overwhelmed when deciding where to head, so we talked with Treefort Organizer… Read more
Actress and singer Mandy Gonzalez’s voice is spectacular. I was fortunate enough to jump on the phone with her one recent Thursday afternoon as she got ready for her performance in Hamilton on Broadway, in which she plays Angelica Schuyler. Before our call, we met at her CD signing at Barnes & Noble in New York City’s Upper East Side. Mandy Gonzalez epitomizes the working actor, one who has embraced the unpredictable business she’s built her life around. She’s worked actively in television and film and has replaced… Read more
If you have yet to listen to Shannon and the Clams, you’re missing out on a band that is unapologetically themselves. They get their inspiration from vintage sounds, and unlike others who may just borrow from older genres, they make music that sounds like them. I spoke with singer, bassist, and Shannon part of the Clams, Shannon Shaw. When asked what it is about the sounds of yesterday that inspires her, she points to the honesty that the music conveys. “I was raised listening to oldies and have always identified with… Read more

La Luz, the all-women surf noir band, are back with their latest album, Floating Features, out later this year. You may have already seen the music video for "Cicada," the first track off of Floating Features, which was released in early February. Today, we’re proud to be one of the first to share another track off of Floating Features, the sunny, reverberating "California Finally." Singer/guitarist Shana Cleveland tells BUST of the track, “We moved to California as a band right before we started work on this album,… Read more

How SoulCycle Is Changing Pop Music

By Tim Latterner  In Music  On Mar 06, 2018

“You’ve got to hear this,” the host of the party proclaimed, jolting over to the iPod plugged into a speaker. “I heard it yesterday at SoulCycle and it’s incredible!”What we heard next was a heart-pumping techno remix of "Video Killed The Radio Star," The Buggles’ 1980 song. While several of us knew the song to be a remix of an '80s synth pop classic, our host had never heard the song any other way than the revamped recording she’d heard at a recent spin class. This was the only way the song existed in her mind,… Read more
Queer musician Sister Rosetta Tharpe is FINALLY getting her place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, and you know what? IT’S ABOUT BLOODY TIME! This lady is a damn queen! via Wikipedia Rosetta was a singer/songwriter who rose to fame in the '30s and '40s by fusing gospel with seriously funky rhythms, helping give birth to rock and roll. Sadly, her contribution often gets forgotten by mainstream audiences. Some critics argue this is due to her music not being solely rock & roll as it fused gospel with it… and… Read more
Punk rock and feminist icon Alice Bag has released a new music video about equal pay, and we love it. “77” parodies the feminist classic film 9 To 5 to tackle the wage gap, and it rocks. This single is from Alice Bag’s new album Blueprint, which comes out March 23, and you can read more about it on her website. She became a formative figure in LA's punk rock scene in the 70s when she co-created the band The Bags. She hasn't stopped making music since, participating in many groundbreaking groups and earning much… Read more

Nashville singer-songwriter Tristen has released her new music video, "Partyin’ Is Such Sweet Sorrow," and her luminous libretto won’t be the only thing imprinted on your mind. While making the video, Tristen explored a question that has tormented many women: why our lives, characters, and overall beings are so often created by, for, and through the male perspective. Tristen soaked in the man-makes-woman perspective, turned the tables by casting a "lover boy" to lip sync her satisfyingly melancholic vocals in the music… Read more
London-based punk band Dream Nails has joined forces with Irish-Italian director Guen Murroni to create a spectacularly political video with a not-so-wee bit of mockery. The band’s 2018 single "Vagina Police" won’t only have you jamming out, but will also get you pumped up to continue the fight for you and your friends’ reproductive rights. Dream Nails wants to not only change the conversation about abortion, but to bring attention to the madness of the anti-abortion lobby ahead of the Irish abortion referendum. “It's… Read more

ANNA BURCHQuit the Curse(Polyvinyl) Does recognizing self-sabotaging patterns render us powerful enough to break them?

Amanda Palmer is back with a tribute that’s heartfelt and unabashedly feminist. On January 26th, Palmer released the EP Quartet for Dolores, a two-song homage to the Cranberries’ lead singer Dolores O’Riordan, who passed away this January. “Quartet” covers two of the Cranberries’ songs: the cult classic “Zombie” and the lesser-known “No Need to Argue,” swapping “Zombie’s” grungy guitar-drum beat for a haunting string melody. “These two songs were the perfect pieces of music to cry goodbye to this incredible woman,”… Read more
Hollywood isn’t the only industry changing its tune on sexual harassment. In solidarity with the TIME’S UP movement to end sexual misconduct, Kesha belted out her Grammy-nominated, empowering survivor anthem —"Praying"— on stage at the Grammy’s last night. Her powerful performance reached a cathartic pitch with vocal backing from other pop artists, including Camila Cabello, Cyndi Lauper, Julia Michaels, Bebe Rexha and Andra Day, and the musical activist group, the Resistance Revival Chorus. While many members of the… Read more

9 Songs To Help You Get Through The Midwinter Slump: Playlist

By Samantha Mann  In Music  On Jan 26, 2018

January is the worst month of the year. It’s dark and cold and wet. Everyone is questioning why he or she even lives in New York City to begin with. Threats to move out of the state are made daily, even though everyone knows they said the exact same thing this time last year. There is literally nothing to look forward to until March 20th . The only silver lining of this month is that people have finally stopped attempting to make bundling up look good. It’s the one time of year that physically everyone is on a similar… Read more
Brooklyn-based Domino Kirke isn’t new to music — the folk-pop star has toured with musical acts including Lily Allen and Gang of Four, and her first solo EP, The Guard, received national acclaim. Her 2017 debut album, though, is something entirely new and impressive in its own right, and we’re psyched to premiere the dreamy, emotional music video for title track “Beyond Waves.” “[The track] was brought to me by Michael Bloch (Here We Go Magic) as we were finishing my debut record, Beyond Waves. At the time, it was a… Read more

By Cricket Epstein  In Music  On Jan 23, 2018

Thankfully, there’s a solution for that. Enter: SheROO, the women-only brainchild of the Bonnaroo music festival.

PRIMA's "Diva" Is A Fun, Feminist Anthem: BUST Premiere

By Rachel Angel  In Music  On Jan 19, 2018

What happens when gaudy excess and punk rock recklessness merge? You get PRIMA's newest video, “Diva.” PRIMA is a Brooklyn post-punk powerhouse headed by charismatic frontwoman Rose Blanshei. The music is lightning-charged, with inventive guitar hooks, dark fuzzy riffs, and foreboding breaks buzzing with overdrive and amp noise, all driven by the sheer energy of Blanshei’s declarative vocals. Blanshei sings, “Get in control like a diva / I’m in control / I’m in control.” According to Blanshei, the song itself resembles… Read more
LPX, aka Lizzy Plaplinger, is a rising musician who's not only taking the pop scene by storm, but also working as co-founder of her music label Neon Gold Records, which she started with her longtime friend Derek Davies when she was in college. With her debut EP Bolt in the Blue out now, 2018 is looking to be LPX's breakout year. We wanted to find out more about this rising star who says, "I'm here to assert myself — harder, louder and stronger — as a woman and an artist!" LPX with her band backstage at Brooklyn Steel,… Read more
Last summer, Brooklyn-based rapper Miss Eaves gave us the gift of Feminasty, an album full of wit, humor, and fresh feminist mantras with songs like “Fuccboi Salute” and “Hump Day.” We fell in love with her after she dropped the body-positive summer anthem “Thunder Thighs,” and now, Miss Eaves is back with “Paper Mache (Single AF),” all about the joys of — you guessed it — being single. “So what? I can’t get a date / Single as fuck, I’m not getting laid,” she raps on the track, which will be released digitally February… Read more

One-Sentence Reviews Of Every One Direction Song

By Megan Kirby  In Music  On Jan 12, 2018

On January 13, 2016, US Weekly reported One Direction had broken up. The band’s reps claimed hiatus, but the truth stands: In two years, each of our sweet boys has released solo material, and there has been no whisper of a reunion. What do we do with this boy band-shaped hole in the universe? How do we commemorate 730 Directionless days? To process my own grief at the passage of time, I wrote a one-sentence review for every single One Direction song — a tribute, a memorial, a true labor of love. Up All Night"What Makes… Read more
“I’m not saying it’s your fault. This year has been harsh," Lemuria sings on their new album Recreational Hate (Turbo Worldwide). And they’re not wrong. It’s been a tumultuous year for so many of us and somehow — in between the global madness of firearms and saying farewell to some huge heavyweights — we’ve clung on like weather-beaten barnacles. It’s not surprising then that the Buffalo bunch latest record is steeped in reflection. There’s a strong focus on improving, whether rightly or wrongly. Vocalist Sheena… Read more
The name Patty Schemel might not be at the top of your list of musicians made famous by the Pacific Northwest’s music eruption of the 1990s, but as far as the “story of grunge” goes, Schemel’s life as the drummer of Courtney Love’s band Hole is crucial. First described in the 2011 documentary Hit So Hard: The Life & Near Death Story of Patty Schemel, her trajectory of fame, addiction, rehab (and rehab, and rehab), and recovery is now the subject of a new memoir, Hit So Hard (Da Capo Press). The book allows for a more… Read more

A teenage girl shouts into a microphone in a shaky YouTube video viewed over 160,000 times. She’s backed by two other girls, all three dressed in skinny jeans, sneakers, white tops, and white hijabs. This is Voice of Baceprot , an all-girl metal band formed in the Indonesian town of Garut in 2014, with Firdda Kurnia on vocals and guitar, Euis Siti Aisyah on drums, and Widi Rahmawati on bass. (Baceprot means “noisy” in Sudanese.) Along with original songs, the girls’ repertoire includes Metallica, Muse, and Slipknot… Read more

Cardi B Just Made Music History Again

By Lydia Wang  In Music  On Jan 05, 2018

Cardi B isn’t new to breaking records and making headlines. Over the summer, she dropped “Bodak Yellow,” her debut single with Atlantic Records; shortly after, the Bronx-born artist became the first solo female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 in almost 20 years. And now, Cardi B became the third artist ever—and first rapper—whose first three singles placed in the Hot 100's top ten all in one week. The only other artists to accomplish this so early in their musical careers were Ashanti in 2002 and the Beatles in… Read more
Cardi B. performed on the The Tonight Show Wednesday night and also sat down for a quick interview, an early holiday gift to us all. The “Bodak Yellow” singer joined Jimmy Fallon dressed in a festive Rubin Singer green fur-and-satin top and teased-up hair, sporting some decked-out nails that easily upstaged the late-night host, and probably anyone else who happened to be around her. Cardi shared the background on her name (a spinoff of the liquor brand “Bacardi"), talked about her home borough, the Bronx, and showed… Read more

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced its 2018 inductees, and the one we are most excited about is, hands down, Nina Simone. An accomplished singer, songwriter, and pianist known as "the High Priestess of Soul,” Simone was also an important activist in the Civil Rights Movement and beyond, calling out injustice through her songs like “Mississippi Goddam,” “To Be Young, Gifted, And Black,” “Four Women,” and her version of “Strange Fruit” (originally written by Billie Holiday). Simone has been eligible since 1986,… Read more
