  According to F. Scott Fitzgerald, “there are no second acts in American lives.”  Clearly, F. didn’t know f—, and he certainly didn’t know 1920s Blues singer and writer, “Sippie” Wallace. Like the more well-known Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey, Sippie Wallace was one of the most popular ladies who sang the Blues  — in an era and genre in which women routinely outsold their male counterparts.  Her ...

  Alright-alright-alright! Here’s your mid-week jam, folks. We know Thursdays can be difficult, so on the off-chance that you need a pick-me-up, Brooklyn-based dj Dirtyfinger has shared with the world his Nip Slip 003, the new R&B playlist:    Dirtyfinger's dj-ed our BUST Craftacular in the past, so we can vouch for his vibe.  It’s likely this mix will keep us going right through hump-day through the big ...

On Saturday night Leslie Hall, of Leslie & The LY's, took to the stage at The Knitting Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and charmed the pants off of every single member of the audience. (Well, not really. She did express her disappointment in how few pairs of pants were actually removed and tossed her way during her ultra-fun song “No Pants Policy”). But it’s the high energy and lovable presence of Leslie that captivates her crowd and pretty ... Read More

Love letters: what could possibly be more fun and wonderful to send or receive?! They are truly one of the world’s most romantic gestures of all time. There is simply nothing like taking the time to appreciate your love interest by allowing your heart to flow through your fingertips when you connect pen to paper. It doesn’t have to matter if it’s the tingly bubble-gum butterflies or the deeply rooted unconditional devotion that we feel towards ... Read More
  Yes, you read that correctly: butt song from Hell. Hieronymous Bosch’s enigmatic triptych The Garden of Earthy Delights, created around 1500 AD, features in its right-most panel a vision of Hell, the conclusion to the narrative of the divine Creation, the union of Adam and Eve, and life on Earth. The work is so richly symbolic that scholars have battled over the intentions of even its smallest details; surprisingly, I had yet to read any news on the ... Read More
If you are over this Polar Vortex as much as every other person on the internet, Tacocat is here to save the day with their surf-rock period anthem "Crimson Wave." This catchy song makes me feel like I am at the best beach party ever, with dancing sharks and mermaids, while menstruating my cares away. Crabs and cramps have never sounded like so much fun and once you watch the music video below, you'll understand why.  Image Via Hardly ... Read More
The indie rock band from Hamilton, Ontario, Young Rival has released the very first random dot autostereogram music video for their single Black Is Good. In other words, it’s the first damn Magic Eye music video ever, and it just blew my mind! I finally gave it a view this morning, and trust me, I totally realize how silly I must have looked sitting in the office staring intensely at the snowy screen of my computer. But just like all those cross-eyed hours ... Read More
Folksinger, activist, and wonderful old dude, Pete Seeger passed away Monday at age 94. There's a lot to say about Seeger--his legacy combines poetry and politics, and his music has influenced countless artists and activists over the years. With his work for labor, civil rights, and anti-war movements, he always seemed to be there to support progress and humanity, Tom Joad-ing his way through the last century.Dorian Lynskey puts it well in his piece for The ...

My goodness, where exactly were you at 13 years-old in terms of utilizing creative talents and working towards establishing your career. Clearly my tweenage pastimes of jumping on beds and drinking slushies on the curb have led me to where I can be found now. But for energetic, teenaged Elle Morgan, who began DJing at 11 years-young, becoming one of the world’s most popular young DJs is starting to look like her reality. This girl has got the balance down ... Read More
