Can you hear that? It’s the sound of BUST’s June/July Summer Music Issue, featuring the one and only Dolly Parton on the cover! We’ve got an exclusive interview with the icon, in which she spills the beans on her inspiration, her childhood, and, of course, feminism.
And there’s plenty more hotness in this issue, including interviews with Tom Felton of Harry Potter fame, and smokin’ musical up-and-comers like Mary Lambert, Little ... Read More

Maybe it's the end of a grueling work-day, if you have a work-day. If you're on the East Coast, there's a sporting chance you'll be caught in a tepid drizzle-storm the next time you leave a building. Hey, maybe there's nothing in the fridge! Maybe you've got to invoice or read the ever-traumatic newspaper or do something else taxing with your evening hours, when all you really want to do is curl up in the deepest part of the deepest couch and ignore all the phone ...

Our friends at VICE had a novel idea. Let's wrangle two awesome musicians, sit them down, and have them talk like real human beings. They're calling it Back & Forth, a fitting title for the riffing of two inspirational musicians. First up? Annie Clark of St. Vincent and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs. Two musicians with relatively sunny melodic dispositions, Clark and Garbus talk about their punk-rock influences and how to infuse their poppy performances with ... Read More

I just love what Merrill Garbus is doing with her band, TUne-Yards. With her way out tribal sounds and kooky face paints, the energy is just fantastic! She's clearly fearless, and I can't wait to see her perform live. Check out this amazing video for Bizness, off her latest album, w h o k i l l on 4AD records, then go see her if she comes to your area.

You may recognize tUnE-yArDs' song "Fiya" as that charming ukulele-plucking track from that blackberry commercial, or you might've seen her steal the show from the Dirty Projectors back in 2009, or maybe you saw her in the USA-Montreal-Toronto trio Sister Suvi a couple years back. but maybe all that flew under your radar. If you missed all that, no fear, her new track "Bizzness" is the perfect introduction.
tUnE-yArDs released "Bizzness" as a teaser for ... Read More

Ever since hearing about indie-pop outfit Twin Sister earlier in the year, I haven't gone many days without reading a new article or blog post about them. Whether talking about their new EP, Color Your Life, or their many shows (they were just on tour with Xiu Xiu and tUnE-YarDs), the New York based five piece has been garnering rave reviews from the likes of Pitchfork and Brooklyn Vegan. And for good reason. I had the chance to see them play (and ... Read More
