Ah, I wish summer wasn’t over because Tangerine’s "Feel This Way" would’ve been my summer jam! It’s soft, relaxed, and makes me feel that every moment should be cherished. It’s a song that you could play at a party, or even put on a “chill-out/study” playlist (as a former college student, this was the biggest challenge of my life).
With dream-like shots of friends sitting in a park drinking sangria, to a crowd dancing to ... Read More
Neko Case, BUST's upcoming October/November cover girl and crooning songstress extraordinaire, has a new album, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You, out on Anti- September 3rd, and it's some of her most revealing stuff yet.

CocoRosie has floated out of your day dreams and back into your life with the release of their fifth album, Tales of a Grass Widow. The pair's latest video release, "Child Bride," is a striking portrait that depicts just what you're hoping it doesn't.
Directed by Emma Freeman, the vid follows a young member of a rural cult as she's dressed up and sent off with a creepy elder to be his bride. She stares longingly out from her new homestead and mouths: ... Read More
One of the best compliments I ever received was, “You remind me of Karen O. Because you're so weird.” It seems that over time, however, we’ve both toned the weirdness down a notch, as you can see in the fresh new video for “Despair.” She IS wearing what seems to be a Hawaiian-tuxedo-meets-punk-bullfighter-costume, and that’s sufficiently quirky enough, I suppose. But I miss the days of red lamé superhero costumes, ... Read More

After a twenty year hiatus, My Bloody Valentine is back with a new album entitled m b v. The band had hinted at its impeding release for years, but the LP was only confirmed late last week. If you enjoyed Loveless, the band’s 1991 neo-psychedelic classic, then you are going to dig m b v. The tracks have the same distortion-heavy, slightly deranged sedation typical of the shoegaze scene they helped pioneer in the late eighties and early nineties. With ... Read More

The other weekend, I found myself on the Lower East Side of NYC to see a promising line-up of indie bands. After paying way too much for a beer, I sat against the wall examining the optimistic sea of plaid-clad 20-somethings. I wasn’t sure what to expect of the show, but I certainly didn’t think it would be a nostalgic romp through rock and roll history. If you lost the keys to your DeLorean, but are still jonesing for some new old music, check these ... Read More

Check out this video from my new favorite gangly rapper, D E N A. Somewhere between the sparkly pink sweater, the gold chain, and the way her charming Bulgarian accent pronounces “Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools,” I think I fell in love.Hailing from Berlin, Europe’s hipster mecca, Denitza Todorova’s music is reminiscent of MIA, and she says she’s inspired by the likes of J Dilla and Sun Ra. In the video, it’s ... Read More
