good tunes: hiatus koyote

The future soul sound of Hiatus Kaiyote will transport you to a dance dimension like no other. With funky synthesizer samples and jazz melodies, their sound steps away from the traditional funk beat. With a nomination for a Grammy in 2013, their music has only delved deeper into the style. Their 2015 album, Choose Your Weapon, features the huskiness and eloquence of lead vocalist Nai Palm, and includes some heavier dance tracks along with their popular futuristic sound. Keep an eye out for a potential album in the coming year as rumoured recording of a new album was to begin in 2018.

good watch: period. end of sentence.

This documentary short is a groundbreaking Oscar win for female driven content. It follows women living in a rural area of India where discussing menstruation has become such a taboo, it has become a problem for women when they have to endure this process each month. Living in a developed country, we sadly forget the poverty other populations are still in. This includes our society's accepted norms when it comes to menstruation and women's bodies in general. It is inspiring seeing how these women are empowered in other aspects of their life through the simple act of providing sanitary products to other women.

 

good listen: pillow talk
