Woods - "Twisted Tongue" (video)

"Twisted Tongue" is an absolutely mind-blowing track from Woods, a fuzzed out pop band based in Brooklyn. Pull away all the blown-out vocals, tape effects, and low-fi glory, and you've basically got a pop track as catchy and sweet as anything by the Archies. But, luckily, that stuff is there. So it's okay to like it. Check it out at their MySpace, below.

As a bonus, here's a video of the band performing it live, via local music show New York Noise.

For All Governments: Gendry-Kim's Graphic Novel, 'Grass'

The powerful graphic novel Grass documents the atrocities against WWII "comfort women" through the recollections of a survivor. This is an incredibly powerful and urgent work that, frankly, should be read by the governments of all nations that must face, admit to, and begin real reparations for their country's atrocities.
