Miss Eaves’s new song “Bush for the Push” pushes you to embrace your pubic hair. The chorus goes, “What should I do with my hair down there? Trim, wax, shave, or even use Nair? Maybe rock a bush all natural. Who cares? Just dance, let it go!” Miss Eaves—who we fell in love with for her body-positive anthem "Thunder Thighs"—asserts that what you choose to do, or not do, with your pubic hair is fine, because it doesn't matter. The anthem frees women from the expectations that there is a right way for your body to look or… Read more

With "This Is America," Donald Glover Forgets Black Women—Again

By Jaylin Mitchell  In Music  On Jun 15, 2018

Childish Gambino, also known as Donald Glover, recently released a video for his new single “This is America.” The song revealed many hideous truths about America and the part black people often play in it. The video featured a variety of symbolism and themes including (but not limited to): gun control, minstrel shows, police brutality, protests, capitalism, marijuana, and the death and birth of a corrupt nation. But even with the dizzying array of issues Glover managed to include, I was still left longing to see… Read more

Indie pop sister trio HAIM have recently fired one of their booking agents in light of finding out they were paid one-tenth the amount of a male arist playing the same festival as them. They have not disclosed the name of the festival nor the name of the male artist. In an interview with Grazia magazine, they said they did not question the low wage for the festival because they were told it was a good promotional opportunity and they may end up on the radio. Alana Haim told Grazia, “That’s why I love my sisters so… Read more

By Byshera Williams  In Music  On May 17, 2018

Taleen Kali, a cosmic punk in the L.A. noise rock scene who has opened for Madame Gandhi and Kimya Dawson, is releasing her debut solo album, Soul Songs, on Lolipop Records this summer. We're excited to premiere her first single "Lost & Bound" here. Kali tells BUST via email, “‘Lost & Bound’ is about finding yourself again after being lost.

Janelle Monáe’s newest album and emotion picture, Dirty Computer, tells the story of Jane 57821. The story is set in a near future, where anyone who doesn't fit the government's idea of clean is marked as a "dirty computer." Once marked, dirty computers are put through a “cleaning” process: their memories are deleted, and slowly they are turned into torches who can light the way for others. When the deletion process commences, we are tsken into Jane’s memory and we get a snippet of the song “I Got That Juice (feat.… Read more

By BUST Magazine  In Music  On May 03, 2018

Last October, a mysterious teaser video surfaced on Fever Ray’s website, hinting—with ghoulish imagery, explicit lyrics, and a personal ad on some made-up dating site called “Karma Kinksters”—that she would release new music after nearly a decade of dormancy. “Sadist, empathetic switch seeks same,” the video’s text began. “For hours of sharing: ideas, skin, warmth, breath, politics, dreams, and body fluids.” A week later, Fever Ray’s exhilarating full-length experimental pop album Plunge was released. Karin Dreijer,… Read more
Are you tired of the ukulele-playing, mustache-sporting, vape-loving men that seem to crawl around every bar, café, and corner of Tinder? Carsie Blanton is, too. The New Orleans-based singer/songwriter sings about all kinds of bad dates and dudes you just can’t quit in her latest song, “Fuck Yourself,” a cheeky parody of Justin Bieber’s Ed Sheeran-penned “Love Yourself.” “I like songs with great melodic hooks that get stuck in your head, I like lyrics that tell stories, and I like profanity. Covering this song seemed… Read more

By BUST Magazine  In Music  On Apr 26, 2018

To celebrate the release of Janelle Monae's third album and accompanying "emotion picture" Dirty Computer, we're digging into our archives and bringing forth our August/September 2013 cover story with Monae, who was about to release her second album, Electric Lady.Janelle Monáe may have been born to sing, dance, and write some of the most creative pop albums ever to hit an iPod, but the world wouldn’t have known about her if it weren’t for the video for “Tightrope.” The 2010 breakout single (featuring Big Boi) made her… Read more

By Anna Greer  In Music  On Apr 26, 2018

What The World Needs Now Is L7

By Tanya Pearson  In Music  On Apr 24, 2018

Earlier this month, I filmed one of the greatest rock bands of all time, L7. The evening marked an important life moment, too—it was my first time seeing the band in concert, a fact that has been a deep source of shame as a longtime fan turned historian. I’m sure I’ve lied about this glaring ommission in the past, probably to validate my rock pedigree to some record store dude, so consider this my "coming clean" and day of redemption. I have interviewed women-identified rock musicians, as an (unpaid) occupation, for… Read more

Every year, thousands flock to Indio, California, the home of the festival, to watch a plethora of musical guests and headliners, ranging from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, The Cure, Kanye West, to Lady Gaga.

CAITLIN CANTY Motel Bouquet(Tone Tree Music) Singer-songwriter Caitlin Canty has just released her fourth album, Motel Bouquet, recorded in music city, Nashville, TN.

We've been huge fans of soul siren Betty Davis for awhile now, and we're very excited to see the new documentary, Betty — They Say I'm Different which will have it's US premiere at the Red Bull Music Festival on May 23rd. So we decided to dug up this interview we did with her back in 2007. Enjoy! Mention the name “Betty Davis” and most people will either comment on how good she was in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? or say that they liked that song about her eyes. But feminist electro-musician Peaches has a decidedly… Read more
Between Cardi B’s album drop and news that L7 will be releasing their first album in 20 years, it’s been an incredible week for music. Today, you can feast your ears and your eyes on Janelle Monáe’s sensual ode to the vagina, filled with lush vocals featuring Grimes and some soft lady loving between Monáe and Tessa Thompson. “Pynk” is the latest track from Monáe’s third album, Dirty Computer, which will be released April 27.

Rachael Sage, a New York-based alt-pop artist, has returned with her 13th album Myopia. The album centers itself on the idea of self-assurance and being comfortable within one’s own skin, but with the current cultural climate, there is also a thread of paranoia. With a bold emphasis on Sage’s guitar playing, instead of her usual piano-driven work, and contributions from Hoboken-based guitarist James Mastro, this album is gritty, complex, and truly stands out from her other work. We're excited to premiere the single… Read more
I didn't quite know what to expect as I prepared to head off to Treefort Music Festival in Boise, Idaho, but what I found exceeded all of MY expectations. The five-day festival full of music, food, yoga, skating and so much more was like an adult playground for all of the senses. The strong sense of community throughout the city of Boise was inspiring, uplifting, and infectious. With so much to do, it was easy to be overwhelmed, but the days just seemed to flow with one amazing activity after another. I discovered some… Read more
I like to think that I am the only fan of certain artists. I like to think that I am among Liz Phair’s biggest fans and cosmically deserving of a ticket to one of a handful of intimate performances. Last night, I prayed that the indifferent universe would repay 25 years of allegiance with a digital ticket. I wrote this essay, set my intentions, and had a dream about the show: I brought my mother, she was dressed like a hipster in a stonewashed denim jacket and red knit cap. She bought me a Girlysound/Exile in Guyville… Read more

Amara La Negra Is Making Music And Calling Out Colorism

By BUST Magazine  In Music  On Mar 28, 2018

It only took the premiere episode of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Miami for breakout star Amara La Negra to charm her way into viewers’ hearts. But the Miami-born Dominican singer didn’t do it in the typical table-flipping-drink-tossing way that usually turns reality stars into GIFs—she did the exact opposite. On the first episode of the series, about aspiring music artists and their love lives, La Negra requested constructive criticism from potential producer Young Hollywood. But when he suggested she be “a little bit more… Read more
As a relative nube when it comes to experimental music, I was slightly trepidacious about attending the Borealis fest in Bergen Norway this month, mostly because my uninformed views expected four days of “Nails On A Chalkboard.” Luckily for me, while there was plenty of noise, it was all interesting, and the acts were incredibly diverse and surprising. The festival, founded in 2004, covers everything from string quartets to avant-garde opera, noise, spoken word, field recordings, chamber music and dance hall. In… Read more

There Shouldn't Be Shame In Liking “Girl Music"

By Julie Kocsis  In Music  On Mar 27, 2018

Ah, middle school — an awkward time of change and newness for all. Perfectly clear complexions become pocked with zits, a once-simple interaction with a person of the opposite gender becomes nervous and overthought, and Saturdays that were once spent “playing” are now spent on more serious things, like getting your ears pierced at Claire’s. For most, a shift in the type of entertainment one consumes changes around this time too. While I liked music as a kid (Disney, musicals, etc.), it wasn’t until I was about 12 years… Read more
Terra Lopez — leading lady of the band Rituals of Mine, the label Bitchwave, and the art installation called THIS IS WHAT IT FEELS LIKE — is a powerhouse who is changing not only the music industry but any community she touches.

In today's culture, it is so necessary for people with platforms to use them in way that sheds light on important issues. We sat down with Lopez to talk about the important work she… Read more

Actress and singer Mandy Gonzalez’s voice is spectacular. I was fortunate enough to jump on the phone with her one recent Thursday afternoon as she got ready for her performance in Hamilton on Broadway, in which she plays Angelica Schuyler. Before our call, we met at her CD signing at Barnes & Noble in New York City’s Upper East Side. Mandy Gonzalez epitomizes the working actor, one who has embraced the unpredictable business she’s built her life around. She’s worked actively in television and film and has replaced… Read more
If you have yet to listen to Shannon and the Clams, you’re missing out on a band that is unapologetically themselves. They get their inspiration from vintage sounds, and unlike others who may just borrow from older genres, they make music that sounds like them. I spoke with singer, bassist, and Shannon part of the Clams, Shannon Shaw. When asked what it is about the sounds of yesterday that inspires her, she points to the honesty that the music conveys. “I was raised listening to oldies and have always identified with… Read more

How SoulCycle Is Changing Pop Music

By Tim Latterner  In Music  On Mar 06, 2018

“You’ve got to hear this,” the host of the party proclaimed, jolting over to the iPod plugged into a speaker. “I heard it yesterday at SoulCycle and it’s incredible!”What we heard next was a heart-pumping techno remix of "Video Killed The Radio Star," The Buggles’ 1980 song. While several of us knew the song to be a remix of an '80s synth pop classic, our host had never heard the song any other way than the revamped recording she’d heard at a recent spin class. This was the only way the song existed in her mind,… Read more
Queer musician Sister Rosetta Tharpe is FINALLY getting her place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, and you know what? IT’S ABOUT BLOODY TIME! This lady is a damn queen! via Wikipedia Rosetta was a singer/songwriter who rose to fame in the '30s and '40s by fusing gospel with seriously funky rhythms, helping give birth to rock and roll. Sadly, her contribution often gets forgotten by mainstream audiences. Some critics argue this is due to her music not being solely rock & roll as it fused gospel with it… and… Read more
Punk rock and feminist icon Alice Bag has released a new music video about equal pay, and we love it. “77” parodies the feminist classic film 9 To 5 to tackle the wage gap, and it rocks. This single is from Alice Bag’s new album Blueprint, which comes out March 23, and you can read more about it on her website. She became a formative figure in LA's punk rock scene in the 70s when she co-created the band The Bags.
