KLEENEX GIRL WONDER: The Comedy Album: 2 x LP

Jan 18, 2017

According to their Bandcamp page, Kleenex Girl Wonder have seventeen releases under their belt. The more I listen to this album, the more I think of ‘90s MTV bands like The Barenaked Ladies or Weezer. KGW might appreciate the latter comparison but I can’t imagine they didn’t cringe at being compared to the Canadian band that brought us “One Week.” The music is pop on pop on pop. I would imagine their fans describe these songs as “fun,” or “they just like to party, man.” Once the tracks on the record start to change genres, even venturing into electronica, I have had enough. No thank you. –Jon Mule (Self-released)
