Action Bronson at Coachella 2013 (more by Wei Shi)
The Bushwick Block Party is returning this year on July 27 across multiple stages on Moore Street between Bogart & White. This year's party is being headlined by Queens rapper Action Bronson, and also features sets by Pictureplane, Jamaican Queens, MC Todd, Death Threat, World's Fair, Galeon, Full Service, The Moon Dudes, Big Ups, Joe Bickle and more, plus the Tiki Disco.
The party runs from noon to 11 PM, and as usual, it's being presented by Bushwick pizza place Roberta's, so there will be tons of pizza from them plus a bunch of food trucks, including one from Action Bronson. 10% of all pizza sales benefit St. John's Bread & Life. More info at the Facebook event. Flyer for the party below.
In related news, you can also catch Jamaican Queens (ex-Prussia) sooner than that when they bring their tour with Sean Nicholas Savage to Brooklyn on July 18 at 285 Kent (tickets). Since we last spoke, art pop band Blanche Blanche Blanche and Regal Degal were added to that show as well.

Happy Jawbone Family Band - 'Tastes the Broom'
Attention Vermont hippies living in Brooklyn! Blanche Blanche Blanche, who released the impressive Wink With Both Eyes in 2012, will be teaming up with fellow VT psych poppers Happy Jawbone Family Band, Ryan Power, and Son of Salami for a show in Brooklyn on March 17 at 285 Kent. Tickets for that all-around great bill are on sale now.
Blanche Blanche Blanche are set to follow Wink With Both Eyes with a new album, Wooden Ball, on March 5 via NNA Tapes. While Wink With Both Eyes saw the band interpreting '60s pop through a lens of chillwave similarly to Maria Minerva, the first single for their new album, "Rich Man," immediately shows they're on to new stuff. Sporting cleaner and larger production, the track hops manically from genre to genre in a Congratulations kind of way. You can stream that track below.
Happy Jawbone Family Band recently signed to Mexican Summer, and they're currently working on their first full length for the label, which they're doing with Jarvis Taverniere of Woods. But before we get that, the label released Tastes the Broom, a compilation of Happy Jawbone's pre-Mexican Summer material, and a great one at that. The group mixes psych pop and freak folk in a manner not unlike Akron/Family or early Animal Collective, and deliver it through a screen of lo-fi. You can download the album's opening track, "Now Everybody Rock Like You Got AIDS," above, or stream it at the bottom of this post.
Ryan Power released his debut full length, I Don't Want To Die, in 2012 via NNA Tapes, and he opts for smoother pop vibes than the rest of the bill, as you can hear by streaming the album's title track below.
Son of Salami is probably the quirkiest on the show, and he's planning his new album, Sontava Nights, for a release some time this year via Goaty Tapes. Our first taste of that album is the track "Baby Mayo," a captivating blend of VHS synths, cardboard drums, and singing-into-a-walkie-talkie vocals. You can listen to that one below too.
