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...
It's finally summertime, and along with packing up your bag for the beach, it's also the perfect time of year to update your playlists as well. Here's a list of 21 new albums BUST is listening to this summer, featuring Gorillaz, Blondie, Feist, Pom Poms and more.   FEISTPleasure(Interscope/Universal/Music Group) FEIST IS BACK – and her first album since 2011’s Metals is an agonizing and thrilling experience, appropriately titled Pleasure. While it takes some sonic cues from early ’90s minimalist grunge (the fuzzy, chagrined “Lost Dreams” channels Dry-era...
BUST has the exclusive scoop on Nadine Khouri’s new EP, Catapult (set to be released on June 30th, 2017 via One Flash Records), and - goddamn - get ready to feel some type of way. Khouri's sultry, melancholic voice has the ability to soothe your soul and break your heart at the same time. It pinpoints that stomach-lurching resignation you feel when falling both in and out of love. One of two exclusive B-sides off Catapult, Khouri's cover of “Bird On The Wire,” sees Khouri reverse...
Legendary German band CAN (Michael Karoli, Jaki Liebezeit, Irmin Schmidt, and Holger Czukay) formed in 1967 and released their first album, Monster Movie, two years later. Since their debut, CAN has always pushed the limits of modern rock music by incorporating electronic, jazz, world beats, and modern classical genres. Their influence on future generations of musicians is wide, ranging from Joy Division, Pavement, PIL, Siouxsie And The Banshees, and Sonic Youth to the Flaming Lips, The Mars Volta, and Radiohead, to The Orb and U.N.K.L.E....
  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...

We love Yoko Ono, and are happy to report she is finally getting the credit she deserves. At the annual National Music Publishers Association meeting on Wednesday, Ono (now 84) and her son with John Lennon, Sean Ono Lennon, received the Centennial award for Lennon’s 1971 megahit “Imagine,” but the tribute didn’t stop there. NMPA CEO David Israelite showed a video clip from 1980, in which Lennon said that Yoko deserved songwriting credit for “Imagine.” According to the Los Angeles Times, Lennon acknowledged, "I know she...
Hard as it is to believe, 2017 marks 20 years since Paula Cole’s commercial breakthrough. This Fire, her sophomore album, technically came out at the end of 1996. But it really caught fire (no pun intended!) the following year. The album produced two huge hits in 1997 (“Where Have All the Cowboys Gone” and “I Don’t Want to Wait”) and Cole wound up winning the Grammy award for Best New Artist — despite the fact that Harbinger, her debut, was actually released in 1994. Over the...
Fourth wave feminists, let’s take pause and recharge. You’ve been hustling hard since early November and deserve a break. Many of you currently find yourselves tits deep organizing and vocalizing on the behalf of your fellow women all across the country, and your efforts have not gone unseen. DailyAction.Org reported that 86% of calls made to Congress in an effort to resist Trump have been placed by women. On top of calling, many of you are blogging, tweeting, raising money, marching, and occasionally knitting pussy...
  Portland natives and married couple Myra and Gabe Gleason have dug deep to create an EP that gets right to the heart of joys and sorrows experienced in everyday life. Some of the songs on Human – developed after two years of experimentation in their RV home – were inspired in part by working with foster care children in Oregon. The duo’s goals were to be emotionally honest for their listening audience and to give a voice to those who are not always listened to...
