Are you soaking in the bliss of a recent engagement? Does your big day loom just around the corner, yet you're still on the hunt for some sudden inspiration? Have we got the event for you. Toasted Brooklyn is New York City’s largest indie wedding event and it’s hitting Greenpoint, Brooklyn on April 13th, 2014.   Not looking forward to the flood of spring nuptials you’ll have to attend that will all look exactly the same? Neither are we. It ... Read More
Noise-pop fivesome Joanna Gruesome have been making a name for themselves with ease over the past few years and if you listen to their latest LP Weird Sister, you’ll know why. Based in Cardiff, Wales, the band takes you on a rollercoaster ride that’s like a Stefon Meyers club: it has everything. Solid pop hooks, melodic yet distortion-drenched guitars, frantic solo freak-outs, and defiantly versatile vocals from the dynamic Alanna McArdle. McArdle has ... Read More
You might’ve seen Mannequin Pussy tear up the stage at one of our issue release parties last year, but a lot has been up since then. The raucous Brooklynites have been keeping busy, most recently touring to promote the release of their first full-length album, Gypsy Pervert, in October. This record showcases a mix of Manny Puss’ signature lo-fi punk sensibilities with some chiller rock ‘n’ roll melodies. Vocalist Marisa Dabice will throw ... Read More
How's your Halloween going? Have you carved all of the pumpkins? Have you worn your "Sexy Chucky from Child's Play" costume once already so it's kind of tattered but it'll still look so great in a dimly-lit room full of tipsy people? Are your apples bobbed and your candies corned? Cool, me too!  Listen to this mix as you prep for our national day of cosplay and lighthearted faux paganism—they're the sort of moody-spooky-sexy jams that the Lost Boys ... Read More
Portland's own Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside made their way to the BUST offices in NYC to soothe our aching earbuds with a stripped-down version of their rockabilly love song, "Shivers." Only two of the usual quartet made it out for this intimate performance, with Ford on acoustic guitar and lead guitarist Jeff Munger on electric guitar. Munger's classic country riffs and solo matched Sallie's soulful energy with ease. As one of the few audience members, I've ... Read More
Seeing Katie Crutchfield perform live might make you fall in love with her immediately. Although her lo-fi recordings are just as powerful, there’s something about hearing her croon her devastatingly raw, honest lyrics in person that can’t compare to at-home listening. The Birmingham, Alabama native has been hard at work crafting indie punk jams since her teens, notably pop-punk band P.S. Eliot with her twin sister Allison. After P.S. Eliot called it ... Read More
Indie-folk powerhouse Laura Stevenson may have been taunting you with the promise of upcoming album Wheel, but now she's given a little taste-tester to hold you over. Former Bomb the Music Industry! keyboardist Laura Stevenson has put together Runner, a three-song 7” that gives us the best of both worlds: upbeat, pop jams and quieter, piano-heavy ballads. The first single off Wheel, “Runner,” builds an infectious energy and contains the ... Read More
Since Best Coast debuted the first single, “The Only Place,” from their new album (also named The Only Place), I have been impatiently awaiting the full album (as in, listening to the single, non-stop, on repeat, for days on end). Like 2010’s Crazy For You, the new album puts Bethany Cosentino's sentimental and direct lyrics against a backdrop of waves and sun. And, thankfully, NPR’s First Listen is now streaming the whole album ... Read More
