Rachel Trachtenburg’s EP with her new band Wooing, DayDream Time Machine, will be the psychedelic soundtrack to your summer. The dreamy tracks and melodic beats were inspired by different muses, including the documentary Blackfish and an LSD documentary from the 1960s. Before joining Wooing, Rachel was a member of The Prettiots, Supercute and The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow players. Photo via Rachel Trachtenburg Rachel had this to say about the EP: “DayDream Time Machine is true to its name. The EP is for sure a psychedelic ride. Each song is it's own journey...
Blondie is back with the music video for their single 'Long Time,' with an album Pollinator to follow on May 5.

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.

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...
