The all-female reboot of the Ocean’s movies stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Awkwafina, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham-Carter, and Anne Hathaway as some snazzily-dressed criminals. We can’t wait to watch it. Directed by Gary Ross. Out Friday, June 8.


Hearts Beat Loud

Kiersey Clemons and Nick Offerman star in this adorable-looking comedy about a dad and his daughter who start a band—and Sasha Lane plays Clemmons’ love interest. Directed by Brett Haley. Out Friday, June 8.

Shannon In Nashville by Shannon Shaw

Shannon Shaw of Shannon and the Clams goes solo; her first solo album “represents both a refinement of the Clams’ granage-punk/AM oldies aesthetic and a thrillingly ambitious new direction for one of the indie world’s most distinctive voices,” writes BUST. Out Friday, June 8. See BUST’s June/July 2018 issue for review. 

No Shame by Lily Allen

Lily Allen’s new album “signals the return of the swagger we all know and love,” writes BUST, adding, “it’s a memorable, confident body of work that will go down as her most original to date.” Out Friday, June 8. See BUST’s June/July 2018 issue for review.

Lush by Snail Mail

Snail Mail’s (aka 18-year-old Lindsey Jordan) debut record leads BUST to ask, “Who else but a young person fluent in the exquisite boredom of suburban life could make a collection this sublimely melancolic?” Out Friday, June 8. See BUST’s June/July 2018 issue for review.
