Chicago one man band Kleenex Girl Wonder blasted onto the scene in 1996 with singer / songwriter Graham Smith's first album, Sexual Harassment, and Graham Smith is the Coolest Person Alive. Produced mostly in lo-fi, his brand of pop / rock / hip-hop furnishes the listener with a true sense of his genius. Short, catchy, intricate guitar riffs loop to the beats of a drum machine, while he either raps about ironies or sings about how he is the best songwriter in the world and corny statements similar. The indie music scene needs more acts like this one, acts willing to transcend the genre barrier with such elegance and such… absurdity. He truly picks up where the old Beck left off with his twist of "where the hell did that come from?"
