Much of the inspiration for Gulp's latest album came from the band's road trip through the Golden State, and you'll definitely feel the heat of the California sun coming off of these tracks.  Their style hearkens back to the time when psychedelic pop had just discovered analog synths. Season Sun's opening track, "Game Love," is a good example of Gulp's penchant for vintage electronica, as a warbling Moog backs a cascade of shimmering guitars and Lindsey ... Read More
The Swedish electronic group has added more US dates to their tour schedule, after an amazing response to their "Late Show" performance with David Letterman, and a run at SXSW. “Following appearances at Coachella and Canadian Music Week, Little Dragon will continue on the festival circuit with an appearance at Bonnaroo 2014. The band will run through the Southern US and will finish up this string of dates with a show at New York City's Terminal ... Read More
If you like to dance, Sónar is the perfect place for you to nod your head till it falls off. Also known as the Sónar Festival for Advanced Music and New Media Art, the electronic-dance fest is one of the most exciting music events in Barcelona. This June 13th-16th, Sónar celebrated its 20th birthday and it was no less than a complete success. Over the course of four full days of fresh indie jams from all over the world, the festival boasted ... Read More
Taara Tati, AKA Metal Mother, is an Oakland native whose music is anything but what you'd expect out of sunny California. Her industrial, avant-pop brings Enya to mind when you hear her echoing, supernatural vocals. The best way to describe her combination of experimental electronica and dark lyrics is as its own genre of "gloomcore." Metal Mother's expertly-produced "Doomdome" is off her latest full-length Ionika, an album full of eerie Game of Thrones ... Read More
It's been a long road for the hip-hop dance queen, but M.I.A.'s finally blessed us with this badass track off her upcoming album Matangi. "Bring the Noize" is a version of a song from a mix she put together for the Kenzo fashion show in Paris earlier this year. This electronica track features M.I.A's signature speedy flow over complex, catchy beats, building into a softly sung finale. We can't sit still waiting for the music video, but the seizure-inducing ... Read More
Chicago-based duo Hobbyist are no noobs when it comes to creating a weirdo sound of their own. They formed the strange electronica project, I Luv Luv Birds, back in '04 but dropped the name and started anew as Hobbyist. As a garage-y indie rock band, Holly Prindle sings and Marc Mozga provides the guitar, bass, melodica, and drum machine programming. They've just released their first full-length as Hobbyist, a self-titled, angsty ride that lets its electronic ... Read More
You know those dreams that you kind of remember but it's all a little fuzzy and you can only recall traces of images and blurs of movement? (Or maybe that's every dream. Either way...) Enter avant-garde songstress Anika's music video for "I Go To Sleep." We at BUST have loved Anika for awhile now, especially after interviewing her for our April/May of 2011 issue! The stark landscape and slow-mo action might make you feel lost in a dream of your own. The British ... Read More
  Fans of electronic music, dance-pop, and fun, take notice: Hot Chip is (possibly) coming to your town. I’ve been a fan of this electro band for years, so to say I’m looking forward to waving around imaginary glowsticks at their upcoming NYC gig (on April 9th at Roseland Ballroom) is a large understatement. The fact that the band recently added a female drummer (Sarah Jones, of New Young Pony Club) only sweetens the pot. I’ll be reporting ... Read More
Unofficial Icelandic national hero (and sometime Brooklynite) Björk is back, baby. Her new MOCA-commissioned video for “Mutual Core,” from her 2011 album-cum-educational art installation Biophilia, is just as odd and visually stunning as you’d expect: the singer, decked out in an Ursula-esque blue wig, directs a cast of gravity-defying humanoid crustaceans in a cycle of colliding, kissing, and pushing each other away. As the spare, ... Read More
The music that Grimes' Claire Boucher makes is not the kind you would associate with, say, a motorbike competition or a football game. The indie-pop-electronic artist layers her high-pitched, ethereal voice over airy, '80s-inspired synth beats to evoke something dreamlike, dancey, and not completely of this world. But sports arenas (very much rooted in this world) are where she and director Emily Kai Bock filmed the video for the song "Oblivion," off Grimes' third ... Read More
