Action Bronson has announced a new album, White Bronco, which a press release bills as “his first independent project in years.”
As many albums do, White Bronco includes a song which shares its title with the album as a whole. This is what we in the business call a “title track.” Bronson has shared this track, “White Bronco,” alongside the news of his album’s impending release, which is slated for “later this fall” via EMPIRE.
“The song is a smiley face inside a spider web,” Bronson states of “White Bronco” (the song). “The spider web represents omnipresent danger, but I’m very happy despite it.” In this analogy, it sounds like Bronson is the smiley face.
Bronson — who, through a lucrative relationship with Vice over the last several years has become something like revivalist boom-bap’s foremost celebrity multi-hyphenate, hosting his own cooking show and a talk show, as well as a show where viewers just watch him watch Ancient Aliens — adds yet one more bullet to his resume by painting White Bronco’s cover art (above) himself. His aesthetic is raw and unadorned.
Listen to “White Bronco” below and stay tuned for more info on the the album…which, again, is “COMING SO FUCKING SOOOOON.”

Suwannee Hulaween is one annual boutique gathering that is developing a devout following with its expert curation and wildly magical grounds. The Halloween weekend festival, running from October 26-28, 2018, hosts an impressive talent roster that brings an exceptional mixture of jamtronica, emergent bass, and deep house to The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida.
Set in the midst of 800-acres of Spanish moss-draped oak and cypress along the black Suwannee River, and complete with the largest bat house in the southeast US, the storied festival grounds have earned a reputation of inexplicable imagination and exploration.
Sitting atop this year’s festival billing is the longtime host band of the festival The String Cheese Incident, plus a top billing of Grammy award winners and nominees featuring live-electronic front runners ODESZA, a South-East exclusive by modern funk icons Jamiroquai, and very special showing by singer-songwriter Janelle Monae on the wake of her blowout Dirty Computer record.
The star-studded billing continues with the reigning king of west coast bass Tipper, five piece American funk band Vulfpeck, multiple sets by leaders of the post-rock dance movement STS9, the alternative radio chart topping wonder of The Revivalists, dark-electro wunderkind Rezz, plus the unique electronic stylings of Gramatik, NGHTMRE, Troyboi, Snakehips, Emancipator Ensemble, Manic Focus & the MF’n Band, Justin Martin, Kill Frenzy, Eats Everything and many more.
