Shonen Knife is aging gracefully. Formed in 1981, the Japanese outfit — which has shuffled members over the past decade, but continues to be led by singer and guitarist Naoko Yamano — is still on top of its playful, punky power-pop game, as demonstrated by new album Free Time. Good Charamel Records recently issued an English-language version in North America so that fans on this side of the world (a list that has always included plenty of notable musicians, most famously Kurt Cobain) can properly digest songs about rock 'n' roll cake, monster jellyfish, and an old stationery shop. Presented live alongside favorites like "Bear Up Bison" and "Antonio Baka Guy," the new songs should make for a terrific happy hour.
