Culture Wars – Hunger

Austin, TX trio Culture Wars announced the release of a new song, “Hunger,” from their upcoming EP teche which will be released later this year. The band, Alex Dugan, David Grayson, and Dillion Randolph have amassed over 7 million streams independently, inciting a flurry of activity on TikTok charting a top 30 on Alternative radio.

“Hunger” twists and turns through warbling bass, shimmering synths, and a hypnotic high register hook before dissolving into a cathartic drum and key freak-out punctuated by otherworldly guitar. It’s a surreal yet nevertheless satisfying track. “I was at a weird place in my life,” Alex Dugan admits. “For me, it was a release of energy. Retrospectively, ‘Hunger’ could be about distancing yourself from emotion in a relationship where you’ve had to disassociate due to dysfunction.”

Inspired by seeing New Order live in Houston, the band recorded a series of demos in 2016. Those demos eventually morphed into Culture Wars‘ self-titled 2017 debut EP. The lead single, “Lies,” eclipsed 2.2 million Spotify streams followed by “Bones” peaking at #43 on Alternative radio. In 2019, they retreated to the famed Sonic Ranch Recording Studio in Tornillo, TX, which sits on a massive pecan farm thirty minutes outside of El Paso directly on the Mexican border. Over the course of “drunk summer camp,” as Alex describes it, they brought teche to life with producer Caleb Contreras. The isolation, yet intimacy of the locale seeped into the push-and-pull of Culture Wars’ music. They recruited ten-time GRAMMY Award winner Manny Marroquin [Kanye West, Imagine Dragons] for mixing and put the finishing touches on the EP just as the Global Pandemic set in. Throughout the next year, they teased out teche. “Faith,” which Alex describes as “a rock song, an electronic song, and country song,” hinted at the scope of the project. Meanwhile, “Leave Me Alone” quickly approached 1 million Spotify streams as it generated a flurry of activity on TikTok fueled by videos from influencers such as Bella Poarch, Nessa Barrett, and Sienna Mae. Not to mention, it landed on the Bill & Ted Face The Music Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and ascended into the Top 30 at Alternative Radio.

Small Axe Official Soundtrack

London UK; Director Steve McQueen has teamed up with Motown Records UK for the official soundtrack to the landmark five-film anthology Small Axe.

Personally curated and selected by Steve McQueen, The Small Axe Official Soundtrack, featuring original score by award-winning composer Mica Levi, will be released on Record Store Day, Saturday 12 June.

Steve McQueen: “Music is an integral part of Small Axe, especially Lovers Rock. Selecting the songs was definitely one of the most fun parts of making the anthology series, so I’m really excited about the soundtrack release, especially the legendary tracks “Silly Games” and “To Be Young, Gifted And Black” performed by the brilliant Tiana Major 9 and Michael Kiwanuka.”

Mica Levi: “I am proud and thankful to be part of the music used in Steve McQueen’s telling of a too unknown true story. It goes to show that protest is an essential democratic right it can change legislation and create visibility and equality.

The Small Axe Official Soundtrack encompasses a potent combination of original tracks, film score excerpts, music featured in the series and four powerful spoken word pieces written by the renowned poet Linton Kwesi Johnson and performed by himself alongside cast members Sheyi Cole, Rochenda Sandall and Shaun Parkes. Exclusive tracks include a rendition of “To Be Young, Gifted And Black” by Michael Kiwanuka and a rework of Janet Kay’s classic “Silly Games” by R&B songstress and Motown US artist, Tiana Major9.

Tiana Major9: ‘Silly Games by Janet Kay played a huge part in changing a generation by pushing the culture forward, as well as making the dream of creating timeless Black British Art a reality. To see the stories based on the lives of my people on a global scale, means so much to me.”

The original of “Silly Games” by Janet Kay also features on the soundtrack alongside the likes of “Got To Give It Up” by Marvin Gaye, “Pressure Drop” by Toots & The Maytals and “More Warning” by King Tubby, Augustus Pablo & The Aggrovators.

The Small Axe Official Soundtrack will be accompanied by a limited edition vinyl release with artwork direction by phenomenal creative collective; Mabdulle, Tara Ung and Wwwesh Studio

Nominated in a record 15 categories at the TV Bafta Awards on the 6 June 2021, the Small Axe anthology series comprises five original films by Academy Award, BAFTA, and Golden Globe-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame, 12 Years A Slave, Widows). Set from the late 1960s to the mid-1980s, the films each tell a different story involving London’s West Indian community, whose lives have been shaped by their own force of will, despite rampant racism and discrimination. Even though this collection of films is set some decades ago, the stories are as vital and timely today as they were for the West Indian community in London at the time. Small Axe is a celebration of Black joy, beauty, love, friendship, family, music and even food; each one, in its own unique way, conveys hard-won successes, bringing hope and optimism.

The music featured on the official soundtrack is integral to the DNA of these stories, both enhancing the narrative and paying homage to the musical and cultural heritage of the times documented in the series. The Small Axe Official Soundtrack, released by Motown Records UK on 12 June, is now available to pre-order https://smallaxe.lnk.to/PreOrder

Food Insecurity

Michelle Obama‘s New Show Addresses Food Insecurity,

Recent Survey Findings Validate the Crisis Behind it

Six in 10 Americans have faced “food insecurity” at some point in their lives, and of those, 73% experienced it for the first time since the start of the pandemic, according to this new research. The ongoing issue of food insecuritycontinues to receive more attention from celebrities and programming, like Michelle Obama’s new Waffles and Mochi show, which is directed at children to learn how to eat and prepare healthy meals. 

To understand the true impact and severity of the food insecurity crisis, recent findings from a new study launched yesterday from Feed the Children, a nonprofit dedicated to ending child hunger around the world, and Herbalife Nutrition, not only validate the crisis that’s happening today, but also shows how the U.S. compares to the rest of the world

The global survey of 9,000 respondents in 21 countries touches on families experiencing food insecurity for the first time, how they are managing to keep their families fed, along with some of their biggest concerns.


Below are a few of the U.S. stats that have come out of the survey: 

  • 73% of Americans surveyed experience food insecurity for the first time during the pandemic.
  • 31% of which have said their family has had to skip meals
  • 59% of parents are concerned their children will have lasting health effects as a result of food insecurity
  • 78% of parents rely on their child’s school meals to ensure their kids receive healthy meals
  • 63% of parents feel the government should promote flexible working hours to parents, so they can ensure their kids are eating balanced meals

Oates Song Fest 7908

The legendary John Oates of Hall & Oates and his wife, Aimee, are producing a free, virtual concert aimed at fighting hunger across America: Oates Song Fest 7908. The Oates are co-hosting the event with internet sensation, Saxsquatch, and are partnering with a league of star-studded performers including Dave Grohl, Sammy Hagar, Daryl Hall, Dan+Shay, Darius Rucker, Sara Bareilles, Bob Weir, Shawn Colvin, Gavin DeGraw, Matt Nathanson, Louis York, Quinn Sullivan, Infinity Song and Jewel. Additionally, there will be guest appearances by Monica, Angie Harmon, Hayley Orrantia and more.

All donations and proceeds from the event will go to Feeding America®. Feeding America estimates that more than 50 million people may face hunger in the U.S. because of coronavirus, which is 1 in 6 people, and 1 in 4 children. During the Oates Song Fest 7908 broadcast, viewers will be able to donate via a unique QR code and at this website. Oates Song Fest 7908 is streaming on NugsTV on March 20, 2021 at 8pm ET. The link for the virtual streaming concert can be found here.

Here at 360 Magazine, we chatted with John Oates about his inspiration for creating the festival, exciting celebrity collaborations, and the new song that he wrote especially for this virtual performance.

Besides the entirety of the pandemic itself, was there any particular occurrence that originally inspired you and Aimee to produce OATES SONG FEST 7908?

We were asked to revive a show that we produced in 2010 called the 7908 Aspen Songwriters Festival (7,908 ft. being the altitude of Aspen, CO). When we realized that we couldn’t have a live audience, we pivoted to the idea of doing a virtual version with a charitable component. That’s when we reached out to FeedingAmerica and NugsTV to be our streaming partners.

How did you decide on the line-up of artists to headline this fest?

Many of the artists were actually involved in the original Aspen Festival 10 years ago and most of the others are friends, or someone who we really admire.

Where did you originally discover Saxsquatch, and why were they picked as co-host?

My wife Aimee discovered Saxsquach online and turned me on to him. We reached out on Instagram and began to come up with an idea to collaborate on a project…I can’t give it away, but we will debut a special video that we did together on the Oates Song Fest 7908 and trust me, you won’t want to miss it!

What songs are you most looking forward to performing at OATES SONG FEST 7908?

It wouldn’t be fair not to mention every artist since they have all been so gracious to donate their time and music. I will say that I’m going to end the show with a brand-new song that I wrote for this performance.

Where will you be performing during your set?

I will be performing from an empty theatre in Nashville and my set will be in the middle and end of the show.

How do you work to create an immersive concert viewing experience online while operating virtually?

We will have a very entertaining variety of diverse and multi-generational musicians and celebrities who will make special appearances throughout.

How can listeners donate to Feeding America during the concert stream?

During the broadcast of “Oates Song Fest 7908” viewers will be able to donate via a unique QR code and at this website.

Best Irish Movies Ever

Ireland is known for a lot of things, including its crystal, beer, anyone who wins the Irish lottery as well as wool-knit sweaters. But one of the things that this nation has bestowed to the world of Hollywood is its plethora of actors, poets, and playwrights. That’s right; we’re talking about Irish movies. 

With that in mind, we have put together a list of some of our favorite Irish films that people can binge-watch in 2020. You can expect anything from classic favorites such as Into The West to the more contemporary hits like The Wind That Shakes The Barley. 

  1. Waking Ned (1998)

Waking Ned or Waking Ned Devine, as it’s known in North America, will forever go down as one of the best Irish and comedy movies in cinema history. It’s so funny, you’ll barely have enough minutes to catch your breath while laughing between the scenes. 

The movie takes place in rural Ireland and depicts the story of two elderly best friends, namely Jackie O’Shea (Ian Bannen) and Michael O’Sullivan (David Kelly). Later on in the story, it was found out that someone in their tiny village wins the Irish lottery and they sought to discover the winner’s identity.  

  1. Barry Lyndon (1975)

This masterpiece by Stanley Kubrick depicts the story of a scoundrel from the 18th century (Ryan O’Neal) who travels all over Europe and eventually woos a noblewoman (Marissa Berenson). However, the events later bring about a series of “Misfortunes and Disasters” as the intertitle indicates. Nasa-based cinematography and majestic music make this is one of Kubrick’s finest entries imaginable.

  1. P.S. I Love You (2007)

This Hilary Swank-led flick isn’t going to sway over the critics due to its sentimental-laden narrative. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying some of the Emerald Isle’s most beautiful locations. A heartbroken young widow forced to start a new life without her husband, who had lost his life due to an unprecedented illness, is something that is relatable and can help lighten the mood that Irish Cinema can often remain brooding in.

  1. The Wind That Shakes The Barley (2006)

When he’s not shooting other gangs in Peaky Blinders, or antagonizing Batman as Scarecrow in The Dark Knight trilogy, renowned Irish actor Cillian Murphy is out fighting for the Irish Independence in The Wind That Shakes The Barley. Murphy stars as Damian O’Donovan, who, alongside his brother Teddy O’Donovan (Padriac Delaney) join the Irish Republic Army to fight for the Emerald Isle’s independence from the United Kingdom in 1920. 

Like other war dramas, this film has its share of bloody and bleak moments. So don’t expect yourself to go in with a smile on your face by the time you’re done with it. Nevertheless, don’t let that get in the way of you enjoying one of the best Irish-produced films of all time.

  1. Brooklyn (2015)

It takes a great movie to tell a compelling story and bring about a robust emotional response, and that’s exactly what Brooklyn (2015) aims to provide its viewers.

The movie is based on Colm Tobin’s novel of the same name and stars multi-Oscar-nominee Saoirse Ronan. It’s a wonderful story of a young Irish girl who ventures off to New York in the United States, torn between two of her lovers and two states. 

Filmed in Coney Island, New York, Dublin, and Wexford, and being nominated for three Academy Awards, including Ronan for Best Actress, Brooklyn is, without a doubt, one of the best period drama flicks to have emanated from Ireland. 

  1. The Hole in the Ground (2019)

Ireland had its highest-grossing movie in the form of a horror number known as The Hole in the Ground courtesy of writer/director Lee Cronin. It revolves around a woman who may believe that her son has been replaced with an imposter. 

  1. Intermission (2003)

If you haven’t seen Intermission yet, you are really missing out. It starred some of Ireland’s best actors, including Colin Farrell, Cillian Murphy, Colm Meaney, and Kelly MacDonald. 

When it was released, Intermission was the overall package deal: it has thrills, romance, and a barrel of laughs that we still reminisce even after 17 years. 

  1. The Commitments (1991)

This movie is about an independent rock band from a poor rural area of North Dublin who desires to introduce soul music to Ireland. A bit of an oddball of a goal, but it no doubt makes for an enjoyable movie. This Alan Parker-helmed is known for its humor and vulgarity, which also serves as a decent introduction to Irish folk-rock artist Glen Hansard. Those who know of Hansard could be because he shared the spotlight with Czech singer-songwriter Marketa Irglova in Once or his real-life Swell Season duo group. 

  1. Hunger (2008)

Hunger was renowned British director Steve McQueen’s first dip into directing where he and Irish playwright Enda Walsh wrote the story for the movie. Hunger, which stars popular Irish/German actor Michael Fassbender, is a profoundly engaging movie that will both entice and challenge its viewers. 

The story of the movie revolves around ira volunteer and MP Bobby Sands (Fassbender). He had led the Northern Ireland Maze Prison’s second IRA hunger strike to regain some of the political statuses for Republican prisoners.

Interestingly, Fassbender’s own mother happens to be the great grand-niece of the historical Irish politician and revolutionary Michael Collins. 

Before going into this, we should warn you that the movie isn’t for the faint-hearted as it is violent, disturbing, and shocking. However, Fassbender gave a lifetime performance, which in turn shot his name into stardom at that point onward.

ABC7 x LA Muralists

ABC7 Los Angeles, the most-watched television station in Los Angeles, has joined forces with local muralists to create wearable pieces of art. The art is available on t-shirts and is sold online at ABC7’s brand new apparel shop.

The campaign will raise money for ABC7’s Feed SoCal Campaign, the station’s effort to eliminate food insecurities through donations.

The shirts will cost between $24.95 and $28.50, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the following Southern California food banks: Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, Feeding America Riverside/San Bernardino and FOOD Share and Ventura County’s Food Bank.

Corie Mattie, the first featured artist in this series, said, “It’s really important for people to give back to the community; and I think, with art, you can really portray messages that speak to people.”

Mattie’s shirt is available now. Other artists include Jeremy Novy, whose shirt is available Sept. 2, Kar_Part, whose shirt is available Sept. 9 and Ruben Rojas, whose shirt is available Sept. 16.

ABC7 encourages residents to tune into newscasts every Friday at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. for stories about the need for donations. You can also donate to the food bank of your choice by clicking right here.

Instacart × Feeding America

Instacart, the North American leader in online grocery, today announced the #GiveFromTheCart Challenge, a giving campaign to benefit Feeding America® and fight rising hunger in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The #GiveFromTheCart Challenge invites consumers to turn their grocery carts into good by donating the value of their last grocery cart to Feeding America to help support communities struggling with growing food insecurity. From today until August 14, 2020, every dollar raised will go to help fight hunger and Instacart will match each donation, up to 1 million meals* to Feeding America’s member food banks in support of the #GiveFromTheCart Challenge. To kick off the #GiveFromTheCart Challenge, professional athlete, businesswoman and activist Serena Williams and her family have teamed up with Instacart to make the first donation of the campaign, donating 50,000 meals* to Feeding America.

“Our mission is to create a world where everyone has access to the food they love and more time to enjoy it together. We’re proud to partner with Feeding America on the #GiveFromTheCart Challenge to help increase access to food at a time when more people than ever before are grappling with food insecurity in the wake of COVID-19,” said Apoorva Mehta, Founder and CEO, Instacart. “We believe that groceries are more than just food – they’re an expression of warmth and connection. We invite people everywhere to turn their groceries into good and #GiveFromTheCart to donate the value of their last grocery cart to help a family in need.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has put an incredible strain on the Feeding America network food bank as we work to address the increased demand for food assistance in communities we serve,” said Casey Marsh, Chief Development Officer at Feeding America. “We are thankful to Instacart and their customers for helping to support our neighbors in need. Donations from the #GiveFromTheCart Challenge will help food banks provide more meals to people who need them most.”

“I’m so grateful to be partnering with Instacart and Feeding America for the #GiveFromTheCart Challenge — together we are working to fight rising food insecurity,” said Serena Williams. “I am kicking off the challenge by donating 50,000 meals, and I hope you’ll join me in supporting the communities that need our help the most right now.”

How to Join The #GiveFromTheCart Challenge

Joining the #GiveFromTheCart Challenge is simple:

Donate and Instacart will match: Consumers can visit the GiveFromTheCart website HERE to donate the value of their last grocery cart – or any amount they choose – to Feeding America. Every dollar raised will go to help fight hunger and Instacart will match each donation, up to 1 million meals* to the Feeding America network of food banks in support of the #GiveFromTheCart Challenge.

Create and share a grocery heart: Next, we’re inviting consumers to help raise awareness of rising hunger by gathering groceries from their fridges and pantries, forming them into the shape of a heart, taking a photo, and sharing it across their social channels. This heart-shaped grocery photo is the social symbol of the #GiveFromTheCart Challenge and, once posted across social channels, will help encourage friends and family to turn their groceries into good to help families in need. When sharing their grocery hearts on social channels, we encourage customers to tag @Instacart, @FeedingAmerica, #GiveFromTheCart, and share the #GiveFromTheCart Challenge donation page.

Instacart has been a Feeding America Supporting Partner since 2018, and supports the organization via its Instacart Serves social impact program. Instacart Serves aims to nourish its communities by helping to remove barriers to food access and enriching the lives of communities facing hunger. Instacart supports these communities through an annual volunteer week of service, grocery donations, disaster relief, and giving campaigns.

In June 2020, Instacart donated 2 million meals* to the Feeding America member food banks that support the ten counties with the highest food insecurity rates in the nation. Communities of color are disproportionately impacted by hunger, and the ten counties with the highest food insecurity rates in the nation are at least 60% African American.

LA Pandemic Meal Program

Concerned that people with disabilities were going hungry due to shutdowns, officials at the Los Angeles Department on Disability and in Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office are working with private partners and multiple city departments to prepare and deliver 3,000 meals a day to homes across Los Angeles. It is the first-ever meals delivery program targeted specifically to people with physical and mental challenges, said Stephen D. Simon, general manager of the Los Angeles Department on Disability.

Private dollars pay for the operation and hundreds of city workers and community volunteers make it happen five days a week. Fox Studios, Khalsa Care Foundation, and Citi Community Development Foundation have contributed to the effort. “No meal service for people with disabilities existed at this scale prior to the pandemic,’’ Simon said. “All of this got put together in a matter of weeks.” The program started in April with 2,000 meals a day but this week scaled up to serve an additional 1,000 Angelenos with doorstep delivery. Meals will go out five days a week for another month at least, officials said.

With the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, the need will continue well beyond the current time frame, Department of Disability officials say, and they are looking for additional funding to keep it going. Bertha Suazo, 62 of Echo Park, says she is thankful for the meal deliveries because it’s hard to get out to shop for her autistic son and an elderly neighbor who she looks out for. “We used to go to the store together but that’s really hard now,’’ she said. “Thank you for helping me.”

State-mandated shutdowns put the disabled community at a disadvantage because they often cannot drive and for months have been unable to visit shuttered regional service centers. Even as services reopen, many disabled people will opt to stay indoors because they’re at higher risk of developing a serious illness as a result of a COVID-19 infection. Contact the Department on Disability officials listed below to learn more or to set up a site visit to the meal preparation center at the Khalsa Care Foundation in Pacoima or the distribution hub at the Los Angeles Zoo.

DUKE DUMONT OFFICIAL “INHALE” VIDEO IS OUT!

DUKE DUMONT DELIVERS OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “INHALE”
View Here:

Buy / Stream “Inhale” Here:
http://DukeDumont.lnk.to/inhalesingle

GRAMMY-nominated producer Duke Dumont has unveiled his wildly quirky official video for “Inhale,” his single with rising UK talent Ebenezer. View the official video HERE. “Inhale” is available for streaming and purchase HERE via Astralwerks.

Telling the tale of Robert Lloyd’s famous poetic line, slow & steady wins the race, the “Inhale” video showcases the story of a sloth who manages to escape to the office elevator first on a Friday evening, amid the chaotic and violent scenes that break out in the workplace as the clock hits 5pm. The themes of relaxation and living a stress-free sloth-like life transpire through Duke’s lusciously down-tempo melodies on the record, which follows his “For Club Play Only” EP, and Gorgon City collaboration “Real Life”- a hugely popular anthem of the 2017 Ibiza season.

Laced with the slick vocals of critically acclaimed, rising star Ebenezer, “Inhale” relies on a funky-groove led bassline, and electronica synths that give the track a summery feel, and look set to follow in the footsteps of Duke’s previous two UK #1 hits “Need U (100%)” and “I Got U.”

A true global superstar, Duke Dumont has amassed over 1 BILLION combined streams across his flurry of releases to date, and continues to tour worldwide. With a number of shows already locked in for 2018, the Brit will travel to Las Vegas for residencies at Wynn and Daylight, as well as headlining festival slots all round Europe, Australia, San Diego, Chicago, and many more.

Having recently released his Bad Romantic 9-track EP, Hommerton-born Ebenezer has previously worked with the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih and Craig David and gained support from the likes of Noisey, FADER, and Hunger. Ebenezer is swiftly gaining reputation as one of London’s hottest exports.

Preceding the release of Duke Dumont’s highly anticipated album, “Inhale” has already racked up nearly 4 million Spotify streams since release, with the official video out now!
