In the video for her single "Only Getting Younger," Elliphant visits the dentist. Or has a dystopian rave in a hospital. In either case, her music is like infection: aggressive, delirious and frighteningly catchy. See the crazy video on Vevo. Listen to it here:And find more remixes on Soundcloud here.
The 28-year-old Swedish pop star Elliphant, aka Ellinor Olovsdotter, released her debut album, A Good Idea in October of 2013 ... Read More

Brooklyn-based blues rock band She Keeps Bees dropped a new single from their forthcoming album recently, and the video for the song is just as beautifully surreal and eerie as the single itself. "Is What It Is" comes out on the album Eight Houses on September 16th from the label Future Gods, which will be the band's fourth full-length album. If you're into some soulful, dark, and dreamy music with goose bump-inducing vocals, the album is ... Read More

Recently for a Funny or Die video, actress Kristen Bell played a pissed off Mary Poppins. While her accent was a little off, she hit the mark precisely in the message of the video, which was that the minimum wage is not a living wage. Now, if you put aside the fact that Mary Poppins would be living in the UK, where the 2013 minimum wage was £6.31 (about $10.70), and the fact that the movie took place in 1910, our favorite nanny is facing a major issue ...

Enra is a self-described “entertainment unit,” a Japanese dance troupe “which presents the ultimate fusion of images and live performance.” And they've really raised the bar with their latest production, “Pleiades.” They've created a fluid work of art in which lights and music accompany the dancers, and all the elements join together to build a powerful, strangely emotional dance. The two dancers seem to ... Read More

To put it simply, Dolly Parton is a force of nature. She is the single most successful female country artist of all time--selling over 100 million records--and she's living up to that title at a fabulous 68 years old. She's invincible. Apparently The Today Show loves her almost as much as we do. Here she is, strutting her stuff to promote the release of her 42nd album (!!!). Besides being a total BAMF, she is so impossibly adorable and kind ... Read More

At this point, if you are a feminist you are probably aware of the absurd squawkings of Phyllis Schlafly, the anti-ERA, hyper-conservative, anti-feminist activist--her most recent offense being an op-ed authored for the Christian Post about how us poor feminist are going to die alone if we get equal pay.
No, really. She actually believes it. From BUST's blog response to the op-ed:
The most shocking and insulting words perhaps are these: ... Read More

My rage can't even take a break for Easter.
Not even this most fortuitous Easter, the Sunday of which the mystical 20th day of the 4th month falls upon. This viral video rabbit looks like she's straight chilling jacuzzi-style, but could actually be in shock.It's kinda like how doctors tell you Q-tips are actually bad for your ears, and you really don't need any Summer's Eve--some things, like ears, vaginas, and certain pets, clean themselves. Rabbits are ... Read More

YouTube can be a major time-waster, or a super productive educator. Typically the difference in how you use it depends on what time of the day/night you're browsing, how many glasses of wine you may or may not have had, and how stressful your day has been. I don't think I have to outline the correlation between cat video watching and the number of times you made a mistake at work.
For those nights or lunch breaks when you want to return to the world a little ... Read More
While reminiscent of introspective UK shoegaze groups like My Bloody Valentine and Lush, Roanoke, Virginia trio, Eternal Summers’ sound on their brand new album, The Drop Beneath, shouldn't be so simply defined.
Eternal Summers have been described as post punk and minimal pop, but the sound on The Drop Beneath includes a pretty edgy dream pop tone that is totally dark and deliberate. It just happens to be one of those (often rare) albums that is a ... Read More
