With a performance of "Stockholm", Austin folk duo Penny and Sparrow drop the third video in their live 'Takeaway' series with SouthBound Creative.

This summer, Penny and Sparrow dropped their latest album, Finch. Lauded for its inventiveness, the LP meshed the duo's consummate folk stylings with rich R&B undertones. Clocking in at just around 35 minutes, it never overstays its welcome, providing a captivating, short-but-sweet window to peer in through that showcases Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke's soulful ingenuity. The meditative folk melodies of "Stockholm" help to paint the album's latter half, and now features as the third and final video in Penny and Sparrow's live Takeaway sessions recorded by SouthBound Creative.

Baxter tells PopMatters, "This live-take of 'Stockholm' was shot in Nashville with our brothers from SouthBound Creative. Lyrically the song wrestles with belief and change in equal measure. We're singing about ourselves and what it's like to look at weighty universal questions and shrug with a smirk on your face. We do that a lot these days, and we feel so much healthier for it!"

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.
