There’s really no way to find order in the chaos of noise-punk band Whorecough. The Virginia four-piece had their first show in a storage unit in the town where they met and since then have self-released a demo that combines styles of punk that don’t make sense on paper, but somehow work perfectly together. Powered by fuzzy, Spaceman 3-inspired guitar riffs and thrashing, hardcore drum parts, the six songs make for a ferocious mix that makes me want to ... Read More
If you’re as done with this week as we are, the moody, experimental sounds of Jihae are a perfect fit right about now.

Metal Mother's expertly-produced "Doomdome" is off her latest full-length Ionika, an album full of eerie Game of Thrones ... Read More
You know those dreams that you kind of remember but it's all a little fuzzy and you can only recall traces of images and blurs of movement? (Or maybe that's every dream. Either way...) Enter avant-garde songstress Anika's music video for "I Go To Sleep." We at BUST have loved Anika for awhile now, especially after interviewing her for our April/May of 2011 issue! The stark landscape and slow-mo action might make you feel lost in a dream of your own. The British ... Read More
