Exclusive Quentin Tarantino Interview Out Now Via Discogs

Discogs was granted an exclusive interview with Oscar-winning filmmaker Quentin Tarantino to discuss his new film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and his very special approach to the film’s soundtrack.

While Tarantino might be best known for his filmography — Pulp FictionReservoir DogsKill Bill, and Inglorious Basterds — his discography is crafted with equal intention and precision. He’s a music fan, and it shows.

Speaking about the soundtrack, Tarantino said, “I’ve long been saying that I have a modus operandi where when I’m thinking about a movie, I go into my record room, and I start looking for music for the film. And that’s kind of how I’ve been doing it from the beginning…That wasn’t the case on this one.”

Chanel West Coast drops a New Single

America’s bad ass sweetheart Chanel West Coast drops her new single/video “Old Fashioned” today featuring Nessly. The Quentin Tarantino-esque Wild West themed hip hop video was directed by Edgar Stevens and produced by Riveting Entertainment.

Comments West Coast:  “Old fashioned is a song I made about keepin’ it classy like they used too. There’s something about old Hollywood glamour that I respond too. Back in the day when people got together, spoke to one another and experienced life outside the worlds of our phone. Having values in which you come home for dinner, a man opens a car door, and finding love was going out on dates, not just sliding in DM’s. My whole upcoming project I’m taking it back to things that warm my heart, inspire me, and have a little nostalgia. But don’t get it twisted, I’m about women’s rights and leaps and bounds we as women have made.

Just want to see some real gentlemen and women out there keep it classy and sexy. At least part of the time lmfao!”

Supermarket Soundtrack

LOGIC “DIVES INTO NEW GENRES” WITH SURPRISE RELEASE OF MELODIC SOUNDTRACK TO HIS DEBUT NOVEL “SUPERMARKET”

ORDER THE BOOK & LISTEN TO THE SOUNDTRACK HERE!

LOGIC EMPLOYS GUITAR-DRIVEN, LIVE BAND SOUND ON MELODIC NEW SOUNDTRACK, TEAMS WITH MAC DEMARCO ON SEVERAL TRACKS

“I wanted to use my novel as an opportunity to challenge myself musically diving into a completely new genre”

“Bobby Hall has crafted a mind-bending first novel, with prose that is just as fierce and moving as his lyrics. Supermarket is like Naked Lunch meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest—if they met at Fight Club.” —Ernest Cline, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Ready Player One

From one of the greatest creative voices of this generation, Bobby Hall—aka Logic, the Grammy-nominated and platinum-selling recording artist—comes a dazzling debut novel: SUPERMARKET (Simon & Schuster; Publication Date: March 26, 2019). With this publication, Bobby Hall proves that his incredible artistic talents extend far beyond the walls of a recording studio.SUPERMARKET is a fresh, funny, and deliciously dark thriller that stands on its own as a propulsive and entertaining excursion into madness and creativity.

SUPERMARKET opens with Flynn: depressed, recently dumped, and living at his mom’s house. When he gets a job at Muldoon’s, the local supermarket, he hopes that his boring suburban existence will get a spark of inspiration. A diverse group of eccentric coworkers await him. As Flynn gets accustomed to his new gig and makes some friends, his creative juices start to bubble again—just what he needed to jumpstart his novel based on the people he meets on the job. He even finds himself falling for a colleague who may restore his faith in love.

When Flynn arrives at work one day to a crime scene, he discovers that nothing about the supermarket is what it appeared to be, and the secrets of his tortured mind are revealed as his world collapses. Something seems to be after him at the supermarket, but Flynn isn’t sure that he wants to confront it.

Crackling with dark humor, extraordinary twists, and larger than life characters, SUPERMARKET is a compulsively readable thriller with echoes of work by Quentin Tarantino, Chuck Palahniuk, and Kurt Vonnegut. Bobby Hall flexes his tirelessly creative muscles to create a world that feels so real, you believe you can reach out and touch it. Who knew that you could find sex, drugs, and murder all in aisle nine?

Welshly Arms Debut Video & North American Tour

“Welshly Arms blend soul and gospel with rock in a powerful mix that lends
a soaring quality to their music.” – PopMatters

“Combining a gospel choir with the most scorching hook, ‘Sanctuary’ is instantly one of the most soulful anthems of the decade.” Baeble

“Welshly Arms’ epic ‘Down To The River’ is a cathartic confrontation full of fire,
exploding with unforgettable rock/soul glory.” Atwood Magazine

“Blending genres, the group has cooked up a unique feast of rock, pop,
and gospel-blues.” Ones To Watch

“…Welshly Arms take their fiery blend of blues and garage rock and imbue it
with modern sensibilities, creating a larger-than-life, unflappable anthem
of self-empowerment.”Indie Shuffle

NEW YORK, NY (June 21st, 2018) – Cleveland-based, blues and gospel-influenced Alternative band Welshly Arms debuts the video for their single, “Sanctuary,” today—watch and share here. The video exclusively premieres on Billboard, who hails the song as an “earnest, dramatically arranged track.” It was directed by Los Angeles-based director Dan Henry and shot in the desert near Acton, CA.

Of the video, frontman Sam Getz says, “We wrote ‘Sanctuary’ about finding your peace and safe place in someone you love and being that comfort for someone else. The video has a feeling of uncertainty and discomfort with the ominous light following everyone around, but in the end they’re able to turn it around and return to their peace. It represents the craziness of the world we are living in right now and how important it is that we all find our sanctuary.”

In addition to supporting Thirty Seconds To Mars on tour and performing at various festivals this summer, Welshly Arms will embark on their first-ever full-length North American tour this fall. Stops include Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY, Union Stage in Washington, DC, The Foundry at Fillmore in Philadelphia, PA, Exit/In in Nashville, TN and more. See the full list of dates below. Tickets are available now via WelshlyArms.com.

“Sanctuary” is taken from Welshly Arms’ debut album, No Place Is Home, out now via Republic Records. No Place Is Home also features previously-released singles, “Down To The River” and “Indestructible.”

Since 2013, Welshly Arms have canvased nearly every corner of the globe spurned along by a bevy of seismic and show-stopping songs. Their 2017 EP, Legendary, boasted the ubiquitous title track, “Legendary.” To date, it has earned gold certifications in Germany and Switzerland, cracked over 51 million Spotify streams in under two years, received 1.5 million Shazams and soared to Top 15 at Alternative Radio. Meanwhile, the group’s tracks have piped through campaigns for Miller, Hulu, NFL, Indian Motorcycles and Beck’s Beer, while “Hold On I’m Coming” roared over the trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Academy Award-winning The Hateful Eight. Additionally, they lit up the stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! and earned praise from Billboard, Paste, PopMatters, Indie Shuffle, Baeble, Ones To Watch, Cleveland.com and more.
