Usually music festival season comes with a roller coaster of emotions: first, excitement to finally see who made the line-up, then hope that maybe I’ll actually make it this year, then the crushing, heartbreaking reality when I realize I can’t afford it (unless I don’t do anything else for the next three months).   Luckily for those of you in LA, a super-affordable festival is headed your way.  Brokechella, an arts and music festival ...

Zohra Atash trots into Birch Coffee dressed to the nines – which is hardly a surprise given the rising star's reputation as a “goth goddess.” Despite righteously rocking a bright lip, a fringe leather coat, and a mop of carefully fussed black hair, the diminutive singer seems...skittish. After she insists on buying the coffees, Atash admits that crowded spaces make her nervous – despite all her years in New York (and as, you know, a ... Read More
While reminiscent of introspective UK shoegaze groups like My Bloody Valentine and Lush, Roanoke, Virginia trio, Eternal Summers’ sound on their brand new album, The Drop Beneath, shouldn't be so simply defined. Eternal Summers have been described as post punk and minimal pop, but the sound on The Drop Beneath includes a pretty edgy dream pop tone that is totally dark and deliberate. It just happens to be one of those (often rare) albums that is a ... Read More
  Okay found it, could this be what we’ve have been waiting for?! Has anyone else imagined that this is what New York sounds like for a girl, a mostly confident, sometimes insecure, maybe nerdy, kinda hippie, wannabe punk, super sweetheart, no-nonsense kind of girl?!    The Prettiots will make you feel like you can have a perfectly crafted cutesy exterior, while secretly wanting to burn your frenemy’s house down. Too much? I mean it’s ... Read More
"We Gonna Take It," the latest track from crazy-cool F.O.B. (Friend of BUST) Eaves, is going to be my jam for a looong time. Eaves says the track is "Dedicated to my sisters in pussy riot who remain unjustly incarcerated. #freepussyriot." Three members of Pussy Riot, a Russian punk band, have been imprisoned for months and continue to face oppressive conditions. Most recently, one member, after a disappearance, has been transferred to a Siberian Gulag. Eaves' ... Read More
Psapp, the electronic band known for helping create the “Toytronica” genre, is releasing a new album! Their newest album, What Makes Us Glow, will be their first LP in 5 years, and boy, are they coming back stronger than ever! Over here at BUST, we’re fortunate to bring y’all their newest video! “Your Hot Knife,” which is straight off What Makes Us Glow, is simple, romantic, and tranquil. Like many of their songs, Psapp makes ... Read More
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. Her unique, full voice ain't hiding anything on this record. Since her move to Vermont, Case seems to be showing a deeper side of herself to her audience. Once relatively private, her music has ...

  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
