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...

Now, she's reaching out to help fund her second LP following her 2016 self-titled album Alice Bag.

After working with many bands and writing two...
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...

  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 debut album as a solo artist under the...
