When we last left Norah Jones, she had released her fifth album, Little Broken Hearts. Her chief collaborator on that disc was Danger Mouse, producer extraordinaire and member of the bands Gnarls Barkley and Broken Bells. Little Broken Hearts found Jones moving further away from her trademark piano sound and writing mainly about the breakup of a relationship. But that was more than four years ago now. Not that Jones hasn’t stayed busy since then; she has. At the end of 2013, she and Green...
Indie-electronic band Survival Guide's song "One To One" is a haunting and emotional study of the dark side of relationships. Today, we're premiering the brand new music video from the band. It's just as foreboding as the song itself.Survival Guide features vocalist and keyboardist Emily Whitehurst, who said this particular song sparks something in her when she performs it live."This song is one of my darker, slower ones, yet somehow I get an energy from it during the live show." Whitehurst said. "It's one of...
If you look up the word “badass” in the dictionary, chances are you’d find a picture of Björk’s 1997 album, Homogenic. The Icelandic musician and actress has never been one to stay inside the lines — both in terms of her art and her personal life. And in an interview with UK’s, the Evening Standard, the eclectic songbird and Grammy nominated artist shared her thoughts on sex and feminism after 23 years in the business.“I like a lot of erotic books and films but I...
via Facebook/Tomboi, photo by Dennis HoForget everything pop-country told you about Southern identity. Sure, plenty of us love shootin’ whiskey and consider cowboy boots suitable attire for any occasion, but life below the Mason-Dixon Line is more than truck nuts, rebel flags, and backwards legislation like HB2. Countless underground femme and queer musicians from The Bible Belt are on the front lines and redefining the sound of their homeland. Whether it’s creating an intentional space for folks of all identities to have a safe, rad...

But despite my clinging shirt and the fuzz of hair plastered to my greasy forehead, I am happy. Why? I am standing in a queue to see St. Vincent play on her Digital Witness tour. I’m a guitarist and singer. To say she is an inspiration is something of an understatement.I’m with a small group,...
via Facebook/White Stripes, photo by Autumn De Wilde It was a dark day when the White Stripes broke up on February 2, 2011. Since then, Jack and Meg White have apparently kept their distance from each other while Jack White has launched a solo career and Meg White has disappeared from public life. Things seemed tense between the two ex-spouses/fictional siblings/former bandmates, with Jack saying a few not-so-nice things about Meg in interviews and Meg, well, disappearing. But now, the White Stripes have reunited for a...
Photo via L7's Official Website Feminist punk-rockers rejoice! The trailer for L7’s highly anticipated documentary is out and it’s just as wild and grungy as we hoped it would be. Although the trailer, first premiered through Rolling Stone, is just a sneak peek, this new documentary will follow the band throughout their epic 16-year career — from the peak of their fame playing shows like Late Night With David Lettermen to their eventual disbandment in 2001. Director Sarah Price, known for her other anti-establishment documentary The Yes Men,...
The New Tarot's song “That Ain't Me” is a dreamy tune that touches on the painful emotions during the initial split of a breakup. We are premiering an exclusive music video from this indie band's self-titled EP which is equally mystical and groovy. The band is lead by sisters Karen (vocals/keyboard) and Monika Walker (vocals/guitar). They are backed by Chas Langston (drums), Dave Kahn (bass), Beth Callen (guitar) and David Banker (trombone). The group's intricate melodies and passionate lyrics give a fresh approach to relationships, mental...

Photo by Renate Winter “At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter to me what these critics or do-gooders think about this band because it’s not about them,” G.L.O.S.S. frontwoman, Sadie Switchblade, told me when I interviewed her over the summer. “While it is really great to make some money off of this band, the crux of playing in G.L.O.S.S. is about trying to exist in opposition to all of these elements of the world that would seek to round off our jagged edges...
credit: Karen Goldman NYC-based art-rock band Rich Girls blurs the lines of music genre. Floating between the reverb of dark-garage and sugary doom-pop, their haunting new EP Love Is The Dealer is a beautiful intersection of sound that makes you want to dance around your bedroom one minute, cry the next. Singer and guitarist Luisa Black unravels the classic pop love song with haunting vulnerability. As she worked on the album, Black tells BUST: "I've never been comfortable writing love songs but Love Is The Dealer was...
