April is finally here, which means rainy days spent daydreaming about future sunny ones, and planning which summer festivals we will be attending this summer. While the current political climate may make us feel like we don't have time to plan or attend music festivals, one music festival is working on bringing together music, communities, and activism this summer: Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, IL. "It's a pretty volatile political climate," Pitchfork President Chris Kaskie told BUST in a phone interview. "It is volatile comprehensively, and...
This week, we can't get enough of rock goddess Beth Ditto's new video for 'Fire' off her new solo album Fake Sugar, coming out June 16. Watching her own the stage in all her honky-tonk glory also inspired us to revisit this cover story we did with Ditto for our Dec/Jan 2008 issue, back when she was still fronting her incredible indie band Gossip. Enjoy this Flashback Friday reprint of our cozy chat. Then put 'Fire' on repeat and brush up on your line dancing!   beth threat Beth Ditto, lead...
Brooklyn-based record label Mon Amie are reissuing Goodbye Horses by Q Lazzarus, and we are thrilled to have the exclusive premiere of two long-lost demos ahead of its official release on April 21st. The curiously elusive nature of the vampy musician is fascinating. The cloak-and-dagger songstress was born in New Jersey. In the 1980s, she fled a violent marriage and moved to New York City, where she became a taxi driver. While she was a taxi driver, her hypnotizing voice was discovered and she recorded the...
For the first time since August 2016, the Wilson sisters are breaking their silence to discuss domestic abuse allegations made against Ann Wilson's husband Dean Wetter. The incident allegedly occurred at their show in the White River Amphitheatre, 30 minutes from where the two grew up. The homecoming concert ended in an arrest for Ann's husband of two years, after hitting and choking Nancy's 16-year-old twin sons. As the band began to perform the last song of their set, Nancy's sons and stepdaughter allegedly asked Wetter...
"When I was sixteen, I dated a boy with my own name. It was weird in the back of his truck, moaning my own name whilst trying to fuck.' Alex meet Alex, riff maven and wordsmith of New York pairing, Diet Cig. It's a truck-based teen moment that is so seemingly intimate, yet so familiar. You find yourself wholly absorbed as drummer Noah Bowman's beat kicks in, and you're swept back to your days feeling outcast on the playground. It's a punchy opener for a band...

Monica Lynch, Tommy Boy Records with Queen Latifah Here at BUST HQ, we're super psyched for the return of The Get Down on Netfllix. But since that show is 80% about dudes, it made us think back to an amazing article we ran in 2007 about hip-hop's founding mothers, all of whom deserve to be celebrated and recognized, too. In 'Behind The Music,' writer Sabrina Ford interviewed five women who all helped bring the beat to the street. Enjoy this longread from the Aug/Sept '07 issue of...
If you follow Boss Hog, then you know Brood X is their first album in many years. In perfect rebellion style, the punk-blues fivesome continues to throw everything into their musical blender and turn it on high. The album opens with the raucous “Billy,” which could be your new resistance soundtrack. Songs like “Signal” and “Rodeo Chica” demonstrate the groups’ range, with elements of funk and rockabilly. “Elevator” is a standout with its scary, hell’s sermon chorus. Boss Hog’s sound has matured, but they’re just as defiant...

BUST darling and all around feminist badass Beth Ditto just released “Fire,” the first single from her upcoming album Fake Sugar. Due in June, this is her first full-length solo album and we couldn’t be more excited! Combining an ebullient melodic drive with a melancholy croon, 'Fire' is pure magic. Last year Ditto told Pitchfork, “It’s gonna be my Southern record but not necessarily a country record.” The Southern inflection couldn’t be more on point, blending a soulful gospel quality with a catchy alt-country vibe that...
