“Land of the Innocent” is the latest from electro-pop group Feathers. This Austin, Texas gals give us the best synthy beats and moody vocals with this track off their upcoming album If All Here Now, set for release April 15th. The video gets an A+ for the ladies’ super dope threads and strange, ethereal imagery. Watching this video just makes me want to zone out and drive my car around until I get lost.

Some ... Read More

L.A. singer-songwriter AG (of the Rescues), industry giant Maia Sharp, and Missouri musician Garrison Starr are touring together, and, believe me, you want to see this show.
AG, Sharp, and Starr are all expert writers and performers who merge a variety of influences, including folk, pop, rock, and Americana, to create their own individual styles. I had the good luck to see them perform together at New York’s Rockwood Music Hall last Tuesday.
Unlike ... Read More

The video was shot by Jeaneen Lund, a regular contributor to BUST, and the amazing visuals (courtesy of Iceland) are as striking as the music.Johanna will be singing for The Cranberries on their world tour starting in October, but first she's headlining a ...

Dan Deacon’s new video for “True Thrush” off the new album America, out August 28th, is based on the game "telephone." Co-directed with Ben O'Brien, the video opens with a short scene created and filmed by the duo, which is then imitated by another team of two, and so on. Each pair was given one hour and one take to recreate the previous groups’ video from memory—costumes, set, acting and all. The game ends messier and more insane ... Read More

Directed by Anthony Mandler, the video features Lana playing both Marilyn Monroe AND Jackie Onassis while A$AP plays JFK in what appears to be a live-action instagram reel. Whether it has you bleeding red, white, and blue or ready to move ... Read More

Having never lived in the suburbs, I view them as extremely foreign yet undeniably romanticized. But unique visions of life in suburbia come alive in Ssion's latest music video, "Earthquake," which was filmed in Kansas City, the hometown of the band's lead singer Cody Critcheloe. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of peeping a Ssion (pronounced shun) video or hearing one of their tunes, the best way I can think to describe them is as something between a ... Read More
