Even in this age of information, discovering new music hasn’t been easy. While a bevy of blogs and reviews are available, a map for finding those which appeal to our tastes or curiosities is nowhere to be found. Until now. 

Google’s Music Timeline is an intuitive graph of practically every genre stretching back to the first recorded note, all neatly divided into eras and subdivisions. The data is culled from how many Google Play Music users have an artist or album in their music library, which effectively turns every song we download into a suggestion. Want to know the requisite soul sounds of the 70’s? Discover the hidden gems of 90’s West Coast hip hop? Simply scroll and click. 

Every artist and their discography comes complete with detailed bios and user reviews along with a convenient purchasing method. Suddenly everyone’s opinion matters and their recommendations have become far less pushy.

Ever wonder what the weather is like in some of the world’s greatest, chicest and most metropolitan cities? How about which colors are currently trending?

That’s right - colors. Luckily for aesthetes everywhere, one site has combined the two concepts to provide live updates on which tones are predominant in Paris, Milan and Antwerp. Check out how the Color Forecast works in the video above. 

Our only complaint: Let’s get New York in there! Although “Black” would likely be trending 24/7.
