Nothing says patriotic holiday weekend like Bjork singing songs to some whales. Well, she's mostly singing the songs to raise money for whales, but I'm sure she'd delight in singing directly to them as well. Bjork has teamed up with last Summer's musical mascots, Dirty Projectors, for an EP called Mount Wittenberg Orca, all proceeds of which will be donated to the National Geographic Society's Ocean Initiative. Stream this album while you fire up the grill ... Read More
Loving the new Black Mountain single and video for Old Fangs, it combines all my fave things; psychedelic montages, 70s chicks casting spells in the woods, and muscle cars. YEAH! New album out on Jagjaguwar in September. They'll be on tour all summer, so go see them if they come to your town! Click here for dates. [video: ... Read More
In addition to BUST's current cover band, there's even Rosanne Cash. To quote Flavorpill, "She & Him. For free. Outdoors at Governors Island. Do you really need us to talk you into this one?" (Leah Taylor) And did we mention FREE? You can even borrow a free bike to tool around from thing to thing (til 4:30pm anyway), or just take your own on the free ferry over.  Trinity Wall Street presents singer/songwriter Rosanne Cash, 2 PM - 4 PM The daughter of ...

(photo of the marquee at The (gorgeous!) Wellmont Theatre in NJ) She's a bitch, she's a lover she's a child' she's a mother, and she is back and better than ever.Courtney's new face and revamped Hole lineup shredded the Wellmont Theater with no remorse last Friday night in Montclair New Jersey.  It's safe to say that the coveted queen hot mess cleans up real nice playing a strong set of classic Hole favorites like " Miss World", "Doll Parts" and "Violet" ...

It's fun to imagine our favorite musical artists having their own favorite musical artists, and who those might be. Sometimes, while listening to albums, I create supergroups in my brain and think of how awesome it would be if the artists who create the soundtrack for my days and nights got together to share a stage. It would be, well, anyway ... what I'm trying to say here is that Thao Nguyen (Thao With the Get Down Stay Down,) and Mirah have discovered that they ... Read More

It’s been three years since the seven piece (plus guests) Canadian ensemble Arcade Fire toured the United States. Which is ironic because they seem so, well, American.  When Arcade Fire released Neon Bible in 2007 they ended up articulating an image of disenchantment so real to Americans it hurt. Delivered with the hollow, melodic voice of vocalist Win Butler and accompanied by the soulful droning of a church organ and the metallic lick of string ... Read More
The First Aid Kit album has been in heavy rotation here at the Bust office for quite some time now. Our writer, Aurora Montgomery, got the chance to see them play their songs live at The Bell House in Brooklyn last week. Here's what she had to say about the show: First Aid Kit played their first New York show at The Bell House in Brooklyn last week. Klara & Johanna Söderberg ,accompanied by a drummer for their set that evening, played acoustic ...
