As cartoon punks who love simple power chords, melodic sunshine, and mock banality, Shonen Knife have been crafting short, punchy, delightfully simplistic albums since the early ’80s. Their new Sweet Candy Power peaks with “Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches,” which explains why they just can’t choose between cookies and ice cream. With Kitten Forever and Black Widows.
