HCTF premiere - Kleenex Girl Wonder: Take My Heart and Rub It

Rock act Kleenex Girl Wonder burst upon the scene with their sprawling lo-fi garage debut album Ponyoak in 1999. An expanded reissue, with a nice stack of bonus tracks handpicked by the band's songwriter and lead singer Graham Smith, saw this long out--of-print gem making a comeback for its 20th anniversary. Listen to Take My Heart and Rub It, a fuzz-heavy mid-tempo rocker with ear-worm potential. Keep in my mind that it was recorded in a single dorm room in Madison, WI. Warts and all it is a piece of bare bones DIY college rock

Ponyoak is released on their own Reesonable Records label (vinyl, digital).
