Welcome back to The Friday Download, T+L's
weekly roundup of books, music, and internet culture that promise to carry you
through the weekend, whether your itinerary is jam-packed with travel or
you're staying put, staycation style. This week: a New Orleans-inspired
album, time-tested French beauty secrets, and more.
LISTEN Jon Cleary's "Get'cha GoGo Juice"
Take an aural trip down South this weekend with Jon Cleary's
latest, an upbeat track offering listeners a taste of the Big
Easy. "Get'cha GoGo Juice," debuting today on Travel +
Leisure, showcases the New Orleans vernacular, highlighting conversations
the genre-bending musician heard at shows around town. "'GoGo
Juice' is just a metaphor for whatever rocks your boat, presses your
buttons, lights your fire or flicks your switch really, whatever turns you on.
One of my r'n'b heroes, Earl King, once advised me to always listen out
for things you can use in a song and write them down. This particular tune is
comprised entirely of lines I've overheard people say in New Orleans, mostly
nonsense but things that tickled me: 'you don't need a license… 'til
you get caught' or 'pay's not great but the work is hard' or 'I
don't need the money, just the people I owe. ' You have to remember
that what they call 'funk' is basically the default mode of any musician out
of New Orleans. On this track we were just doing what comes naturally, and I
think it's obvious on this track right from the down beat how much fun we
were having. " Cleary's "Get'cha GoGo Juice" debuts below. Like what you
hear? Pre-order the album on iTunes. com.   READ The French
Beauty Solution
Some self-help books are worth not much more than a side-eye, but Caudalie
founder Mathilde Thomas's new title is one worth picking up. Tap into the
long-held beauty secrets of famous French women like Marion Cotillard and
Brigitte Bardot with this primer, which covers everything from how to
manage stress to the very best skincare ingredients.  Download it here.
WATCH Animated Flyover of Pluto 
On Tuesday, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flew by Pluto, a feat nine years
and three billion miles in the making. This morning, scientists uploaded a
simulated flyover of the dwarf planet's Norgay mountain range by
animating the craft's closest-approach images. Watch the clip below:

Either I drank too much Pinterest Kool-Aid, or it's been a banner
month for architecture photography.  First, I found myself enamoured
with  artist Andre Vincente Goncalves's "Windows of the World" series,
and now I can't stop refreshing The Door Project's feed of entrance ways
across the globe. The vibrant Santa Fe exterior below is one of my favorites,
but there's plenty more where that came from, over on Instagram. [View the
