Periscopes in the Air

Label: Golden Eels
US Release date: 2015-04-21

Golden Eels popped onto my feed because of our mutual music preferences on Bandcamp. Their songwriter, Neil Golden, has played on records for several Athens, Georgia bands, ranging from the Elephant 6 legends, Elf Power to the Glands and Country Fried Rock alumni Shonna Tucker and Eye Candy. Periscopes in the Air leans toward the psychedelic pop sounds of Golden's earlier collaborations, yielding a completely DIY record that suits long commutes and pleasant workday distractions.

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.
