Kepi Ghoulie - Trunk Space - June 11

In 2007 divorce did what 20 years of lineup changes couldn't, ending the bubblegum pop-punk career of the Groovie Ghoulies, history's least intimidating horror-themed band. Before you get too broken up about it, though, listen to the solo work frontman Kepi Ghoulie has produced in the years since.

2011's I Bleed Rock 'n Roll is as immediate and catchy as--well, as any other Ghoulies album. 2012's Kepi for Kids makes it clear that said catchy, immediate pop-punk was much closer to childrens' music already than any of us had a right to guess. Even when he's gone acoustic it hasn't thrown his straightforward melodicism for a loop.
