Need the perfect present for the pal that has everything? Already bought them that side table that doubles as a dog cage from SkyMall for their last birthday? Try giving them a tape with your original song poem! According to the now-defunct site Altered Zones (R.I.P.), song poetry has been around since at least the 1940s. Song poems gave average folks an opportunity to have their poems/lyrics made into real (but not always real good) songs by modern musicians, ... Read More
Lady Gaga is known for her preposterous outfits (both on and off stage), her risqué dance moves, and her support of the LGBT community. Now the pop star will be known for being the first foreign artist to be denied a concert permit by the Indonesian authorities. According to the Jakarta Post, authorities cancelled Lady Gaga’s June 3rd concert because various groups were afraid that the singer’s sessy dance moves and nearly nonexistent ... Read More
I felt hella good when I saw this video announcement from the members of No Doubt: You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video The new album comes out September 25th! It’s been over 10 years since the California-based band released a new album. In 2004, they took a hiatus to pursue solo projects and since then, die-hard No Doubt fans have waited for the day when the band would reunite and make music again. I saw them perform in summer ...

Despite her recent forays into poppier territory, Norah Jones still calls to mind the image of a young chanteuse churning out wise-beyond-her-years jazz tunes in a downtown club. On her fifth album Little Broken Hearts, she’s still downtown, but she’s traded the jazz club for a hip, hole-in-the-wall pub. After working with him on 2011’s Rome, Jones reteamed with Danger Mouse as her producer, and his indie, hip-hop influence is all over this ... Read More
It’s no secret that we love us some tough ladies here at BUST. So Melanie Fiona’s latest video for her track “Watch Me Work” is right up our alley. The video is a jarring, fast-paced mash-up of TV and movie clips. It features iconic ladies in pop-culture like Pam Grier in Coffy, the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad in Kill Bill, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in their “Bitches get stuff done!” clip from SNL, and Tracie Thoms in Death ...

 Reviewed by Adrienne Urbanski On the quirky, synth-backed Destination Friendship, Iowa native, Internet sensation, and noted bedazzled-sweater collector Leslie Hall sings and raps about such unusual subjects as her fondness for cuddling and proper hydration during a dance party. “Here to Win” pokes fun at the lack of party prospects in rural Iowa, while “Crazy Now” is an ode to a completely bonkers paramour. On “Purchase ... Read More
British artist Gemma Ray is releasing a new album, "Island Fire," on May 29 and is touring this May to promote the record. She's also released her first video off the new record, "Rescue Me." The video features Ray as a 1950s housewife grocery shopping as she day dreams about being "a million miles away" from the technicolor aisles of the supermarket, hoping that someone will rescue her. The combination of Ray's soothing voice, the melancholy melody of the song ... Read More
Reviewed by Sheila Dichoso We can barely believe it’s been four years since the Ting Tings released their feverish debut, because it still sounds young and fresh. Back in 2008, We Started Nothing made us feel as badass as tripping cheerleaders stealing mascara at the mall, and that’s fine, but so very high school. Their sophomore album, Sounds From Nowheresville, has a more seasoned, sultry attitude. After touring their electro butts off on Nothing, ... Read More
Alexis Krauss, frontwoman for of-the-moment rockers Sleigh Bells, compiled some of her top musical picks for our April/May issue. Below are the tunes that make her tick.     “Genesis” by Grimes “She’s already released two records, and I loved ‘Oblivion,’ the first single she put out, but I’m really into ‘Genesis.’ I’ve been listening to it pretty obsessively.” You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video “212” ...

No more dillydallying, y'all. That infamous lioness of a seasonal gateway month has officially arrived, and it's time for us to take a moment of silence for our cold-weather mental struggles and then forget 'em. But fear not this task! The Montreal-born boy maestros of Plants and Animals can help you rile you up for summer road-trip fantasies with their third album, The End of That. In making The End of That, Plants and Animals abandoned their nervy, ... Read More
