Aesop Rock scored new action film ‘Bushwick’ (listen), playing Music Hall of Williamsburg


Aesop Rock has scored his first film, an action-drama titled Bushwick which is out in theaters and on-demand on August 25. The film is indeed set in the Brooklyn neighborhood and stars Brittany Snow and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy). Here’s the synopsis:

Stupe (Dave Bautista) and Lucy (Brittany Snow) must navigate through a hail of gunfire and lethal explosions in their Brooklyn neighborhood as Texas attempts to secede from the US in a new civil war.

You can watch a clip from film, which plays a bit like a videogame, below. As for Aesop Rock’s score, by the sound of “Corner Store,” he’s going for ’70s action and exploitation films vibes, by way of his own sound. Check out that track below. The soundtrack is also out August 25

To celebrate the release of Bushwick (and its soundtrack), Aesop Rock will play Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 23 with Rob Sonic and DJ Zone. Tickets go on sale today at noon. Poster for the show is below.
