  Frequent BUST contributor and all around badass lady Mish Way proved once and for all that she is not one for taking sexist hecklers lightly. The White Lung singer and her band played a Red Bull Sound Select show at Palisades, a Brooklyn club, last night along with Power Trip and Sick Feeling. After a few minutes of the first song, some balding bro in the front decided to start, as Way claims on her Twitter account, calling her a cunt and flipping her the ... Read More
Music is a very male-dominated industry, and when women do rise to prominence they are often pitted against and compared to each other, despite the fact that each queen is a unique snowflake and should be treated as such. But once in a blue moon, all the stars align and three or more female powerhouses collaborate to create a club-banger that reminds the boys that these divas are not only fierce, but borderline superhuman when they work together. You better work, ... Read More
Zola Jesus is bigger than… well, you know. And if you don't, allow me to enlighten you with her brand new video for her song "Dangerous Days." Her music style is definitely cooler, darker and far more nuanced than many artists performing today, and I think we definitely all want to get lost within the spooky, mysterious world she so skillfully creates. The song itself is from her upcoming album TAIGA, to be released this October, and ventures further ... Read More
In surprising news of the day, Big Boi (of OutKast) is an obsessive Kate Bush fan. Unsurprisingly, so are many other musicians and writers and celebrities and regular people because Kate Bush is the shit. Even though the Spin article that catalogs Big Boi’s intense love is about three years old, it’s always worth reminding people of the dream musical collab that has yet to happen.  Nowadays, Bush is pretty busy. Tonight marks the first time ... Read More
What do you think a mix of a classically trained ex-opera singer, politically charged lyrics and dark rock sounds like? Probably not Emily Danger, but I can assure you, all of the ingredients are there and then some. This incredible Brooklyn-based band takes “dark cabaret rock” – a genre that you will want to spread like wildfire – to lengths you didn’t think were possible. I chatted with the amazing Emily Danger herself, and I sat in ... Read More
The first time I listened to electro-soul artist SHIRA, I felt as if I was no longer controlling what I was listening to, but rather it was controlling me. It was – no joke- an out of body experience; stronger than the chills you get from a song that touches you in ways that you forget only music can do. Her lyrics so boldly represent the power that women have inside of them; listening to her makes me want to connect with every woman on this planet and just ... Read More
Saturday Night Live's, Vanessa Bayer, plays a fake media coach named “Janessa Slater” on a YouTube talk show Sound Advice. Let me tell you, it is freakin’ amazing and I seriously don't know how am I just finding out about this... Similar to Galifianakis’ comedic talk show, Between Two Ferns, Bayer (or I should say Slater), mocks her guests in a way that only makes herself look bad. Today she has a meeting with Tegan and ...

Last week BUST published an article called “The Classical World Can’t Stop Fat Shaming Women” about the preoccupation with opera singer Tara Erraught’s weight in several musical reviews.  Andrew Clark, writing for the Financial Times stated that "Tara Erraught's Octavian is a chubby bundle of puppy fat,” and added, as an afterthought, that her performance was "gloriously sung."  And he wasn’t the only one.  The snide ...
