The Top 25 Songs That Matter Right Now – The New York Times Magazine
When I previously clicked into this enormous, intelligent New York Times Magazine feature, I anticipated that it should be a straightforward visual playlist of current pop hits. I was extremely, wrong. What I got rather was quite possibly the most fascinating pieces of social reporting I’ve found in quite a while. It takes a gander at tunes by the like of Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Meek Mill, James Blake, and more to offer understanding into where we’re at as a civilization and how music can be much more than notes and words to tap your feet to.

The Known Unknown – 99% Invisible
Listen to the digital recording or dive into the article for this mind blowing story from 99 % Invisible. We as a whole think about the undaunted Tomb Guards that hold the post at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and a few of us may have even visited Arlington National Cemetery previously, however there’s a bigger anecdote about how the remembrance became and how an unusual call from a trick scholar started an enormous scope examination. This story clarifies why we may always failing to bring back an “obscure” warrior again following a gigantic government conceal that was uncovered during the ’90s and generally changed the manner in which we recognize and memorialize our fallen.

LCD Soundsystem Electric Lady Session
Every time I swing by my companion Alex’s condo, he is constantly eager to share his most recent find from his neighborhood record shop. This time, it was LCD Soundsystem’s Electric Lady Sessions. Perhaps the greatest lament is never considering them to be show as LCD Soundsystem has been a major piece of the soundtrack to my life and I think numerous other can relate the capacity to stamp life events with melodies from their catalog.
Well, enough assumption, what might be said about the music? To put it plainly, it’s great. In the event that you are searching for some new tunes or have been accused of playing DJ this weekend, I strongly recommend it. I’m not a music pundit but rather to me this record feels new, fun, and loaded with groove. My number one second? Tune in for the change among “Home” and Chic’s “I Want Your Love.”

One Breath Around The World – Guillaume Nér y
This dumbfounding short film highlights champion freediver Guillaume Néry as he takes a full breath and swims the waters of the world. From caverns to open seas and lowered backwoods, Néry freedives under ice, with trackers, and comes up close and personal with resting sperm whales. Watch it on your best screen (ideally at 4k) and attempt to try not to hold your breath – it’s delightful, stunning, and an incredible method to escape for 12 minutes.
