  When noise/punk band Mika Miko split up, telephone-microphone hybrid fans were left heartbroken across the sprawl of greater Los Angeles (and beyond). Mika Miko were known for raising hell in DIY settings and venues, especially at downtown L.A.'s The Smell, where they played their final show in January 2010. Today, however, I am thrilled to inform everyone of Mika Miko's resurrection of sorts. No, the band is not back together. But the group's sister duo, ... Read More

List this one under "Reasons Why I Love the Internet", because this website dedicated to photographs of Morrissey posing with cats is nothing but PURE JOY. Morrissey, is my favorite mopey, angst-ridden musician. He understands doomed relationships, being lonely in nightclubs, wanting to bludgeon people in their beds... and cats. Morrissey is a passionate animal rights advocate, and has worked a lot with PETA, so it's not completely random that he has so many ... Read More
Last week, we had Youtube sensation and rising pop star Kreayshawn at the BUST offices for an interview for the upcoming issue October/November issue! Just over a month ago the 21 year old Oakland based rapper posted the video for her "Gucci Gucci" song on Youtube, and since then her video has had more the three million views. Boom! Folks at her record label have already started to call her "Swag Spice", which seems like the best way to describe this ghetto-fresh ... Read More

Our lovely Emily Rems, joined by Entertainment Weekly editor-in-large Ken Tucker and Queen biographer Mark Blake debate whether Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is ingenious… or just indulgent on  NPR's Soundcheck Smackdown. I personally think this song is inspirational, beautiful, the perfect song to wail along with while vaguely intoxicated on public transportation, (when you don't care that people are staring atchoo.) If it's good enough for Garth ... Read More

Erika M. Anderson, formerly of the drone-y indie band Gowns, has always sounded like she has some kind of demon inside her that she absolutely needs to exorcise. On Past Life Martyred Saints (Souterrain Transmissions), her debut album as EMA, Anderson sounds close to the brink on nearly every song, like PJ Harvey’s goth cousin or an early Courtney Love. Opening track “The Grey Ship” begins with Anderson singing over quiet acoustic guitar and soft ... Read More
