Last week French dance producer, Cerrone announced he will be releasing a brand-new new album in 2020 called “DNA” and this first single, “The Impact”,  is a sneak preview into his newest musical inspiration. As the title hints, the song discusses climate change and bringing awareness to it. What better way to do it than to feature none other than the real-life Wonder Woman of Primatology and world-renowned anthropologist, Jane Goodall. 

The accompanying video takes viewers on a journey of heartache and inspiration, juxtaposing images of the earth’s beauty and tragic destruction. Its prophetic and mesmerizing message can’t be easily forgotten. May Cerrone’s new song inspires us all to not only shake our hips but also pick up litter while we do.

Area 51 Gets Raided (Sort Of)

What had initially started out as a prank, has now made its way into a legitimate news story as curiosity seekers and semi devoted protestors made their way to the famous and infamous Area 51. This iconic area is located in a remote part of Nevada on a highly classified, United States Air Force facility. The base has never been declared a secret base, but all research and occurrences in Area 51 are Top Secret. This level of secrecy has led to years of speculation that this is where some of the juiciest government secrets are held to this day. These include secret bombers, foreign technology, and even alien creatures and/or spacecraft. 

On June 27, 2019, Matty Roberts created a Facebook event that involved raiding the site in search of extraterrestrial life. More than 2 million people responded they were "going" and 1.5 million were "interested" on the event's page, (typical non-committers) and subsequent media coverage followed. 

Then came the internet memes:

You know you’ve made it when Brad Pitt is bleeding all over your meme.

We hear there’s a great program to trade-in your 2017 Subaru for an X-Wing Fighter.

However, on the day of the event, only about 150 people were reported to have shown up at the entrance to Area 51, with none succeeding in entering the actual site. Which just goes to show, people on Facebook are even flakey about going to visit their alien friends.

Essential Inspired Listening For March


Where to begin with new music releases in March? Try here for starters:

Billie Eilish releases her long-awaited debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? This moody emo-pop creation calls to mind, Nine Inch Nails, Fiona Apple, and Chromatics. Hold on as no doubtedly, she’ll be taking us all for a fun ride.

Meanwhile, 19-year-old Koffe, from Spanish Town, Jamaica is creating a wave of highly energized reggae like no other in the industry right now. Speaking her truths with a sense of urgency, she’s on a mission to greatness.

Then there’s the new release from Jenny Lewis, On The Line, which features a stunning collection of songs that showcase her sophisticated sound that fuses pop and rock in a way that continues to inspire her contemporaries. Rock on Jenny, may we all take notes out of your classic playbook.

If there’s one thing we probably didn't need it was another turn listening to Lil Nas X’s chart-topping sensation, OId Town Road. Seriously. I’ve heard it in my car, I’ve heard it at the bar. I’ve heard it at Von’s, I’ve heard it sung by moms. I’ve heard it while being bitten by mosquitos, and I’ve heard it watching Super Bowl commercials for Dorritos. 

But, even jaded old Jack actually enjoyed this rendition performed by HarvardTHUD (or The Harvard Undergraduate Drummers) an undergraduate student-led music group from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts

Take a listen for yourself and let me know if, in fact, we can’t tell you nothin’ about good music. 

Exciting New Music Releases In February To Keep Your Mind Off Valentine’s Day

Here are some new releases to check out in a month that is often filled with too much chocolate, and rom com viewing.

Ariana Grande released a highly anticipated and seamlessly polished pop diary on the importance of hope, which is of course something we all need well after February. Other noteworthy releases include Julia Jacklin’s sparse productions on her empowerment recordings. Or there’s the German Composer and pianist Hauschka, who released the stunning collection of instrumentals inspired by nature and the wonder of humankind’s interconnectedness to it all

Or for something even more off the beaten path, check out Jeremy Denk and his new release, c.130-c.2000. In this unique body of work, Denk has on this double album, traced 700 years of music from spaciously arranged medieval songs to pieces by Mozart and modern works by Glass. He deconstructs counterpoint melodies with compelling performances and to top it off, there’s a quiz at the end of the liner notes. Nerdy audiophiles unite!

You remember when Justin Timberlake helped Janet Jackson have the “wardrobe malfunction” seen ‘round the world? Well, that sent a prudish 2004 America into a tizzy and resulted in more than 540,000 complaints sent to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Well nearly two decades later, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira unleashed stripper poles and short-shorts on a more calloused nation. Proving our growth, the FCC only received 1,300 complaints from Karens. 

Anyway, the game was fun, I guess. J-Lo and Shakira danced. Shakira did that weird tongue thing which is a meme now, BTW. Anyway, still reeling from the actual research I had to do for this one.
