Let's Knife would be a good start, I think.

Listening to it now-- I like what I hear.  It's got a very relaxed sound to it, I like.

Be sure to check out Free Time as well. They have been on an upswing for the past five years or so.

Yeah, I finished Let's Knife and I'm actually listening to 712 right now.  I like this sound-- I can't describe it, but its really sincere.  It's always kinda confusing knowing which album to go to next when checking out a new band.

It's really tough with this band too, since they have pretty much sounded exactly the same over their entire career. A lot of their albums tend to bleed together in my head.

This thread is good thread. I've wanted some Shonen Knife music for a while, but moneys and lack of decent storage space for files has prevented me from has. :C Like most music at the moment. Which is something I've been saying for far too long. Although, now that I use Grooveshark, I don't think I really have an excuse not to listen to a lot of tunes. Save for the super recent ones, since those don't get uploaded immediately. And GS tends to not have full albums sometimes.

Anyway, yeah. Band is of the good bandness.

not full albums

This is... the worst thing. Every time you break up an album, an angel gets its wings ripped out.

Yeah, pretty much. I get so pissed off. I almost want to just remove the album from my list completely. But then I'm like "DON'T HAVE ANY OTHER MUSIC FUCK IT" and endure the pain. :C

This.  This is why I can't use Pandora.  Also it never gives me anything I actually like.

Also, Topher, thanks for the suggestion of Let's Knife.  Great album.  I'm also finding myself partial to Happy Hour (Yay, Cookie Day!) and Pretty Little Baka Guy.
