Here at BUST HQ, it’s rainy, gloomy, humid, and just generally disgusting outside. It’s days like these that are perfect for watching the grossness from your window while you sit back and enjoy the sweet, soothing sounds of multi-instrumentalist Aisha Burns. Former violinist for folk ensemble Balmorhea, the Austin-based singer-songwriter has moved on to compose an album of her own and we can see why. She sang in secret for years, which you’ll ...

Now that our tears have dried after the news of the Girls breakup, we can all welcome Christopher Owens’ solo act to our ears with love. Lysandre is a concept album with a stranger sound than that of Girls’ beloved Album and Father, Son, Holy Ghost.
