At their stop at the Beacon Theatre in New York on Tuesday evening, Deap Vally hit the stage first. This dynamic duo, compromised of Julie Edwards and Lindsey Troy, got the audience primed for an electric night with their bluesy, garage punk sound and ferocious growling vocals, featuring songs from their latest album, Femejism. Next up were Garbage. The great Shirley Manson, Butch Vig, and Co....

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 art worthy of any contemporary art museum. In...
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.

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, she told the audience,...
The Portland, Oregon-based band Y La Bamba is the perfect mix of smooth electronic music and folky pop, with the presence of unique and etherial vocal melodies. Frontwoman Luz Elena Mendoza is a vision with her silver bowl cut enchants you with soulful crooning. She spoke with BUST on issues of identity, community, and exploring physic powers.
