DoubleX endorsements:

Hanna Rosin recommends that you check out photographer Rebecca Martinez’s photo series of the Reborn movement, a group of mostly women who collect, create, and care for extremely life-like baby dolls.

Noreen Malone wants you to listen to Swedish folk-pop duo First Aid Kit, and in particular their song “Emmylou.”


Allison Benedikt says that the three-plus hour Eagles documentary, “History of the Eagles,” is worth watching, just to gawk at young Don Henley, who was quite attractive.
