CARY KANNO-The Light Fantastic

Cary Kanno is a Chicago singer/songwriter who was in the bands Abstract Giants and Doko Benjo before striking out on his own in 2009. His latest, “The Light Fantastic,” is a great collection of well-written, gentle tunes full of heart. One is reminded of Josh Ritter or Andrew Bird. He’s not twee, but his music is definitely sweet.

Check out the new album below–I particularly recommend “We are All Animals” and “Ignorance is Bliss.” Also, there’s a neat over of Nirvana’s “Something in the Way.”

THE NEW ATLAS-“The New Atlas”

Wow! This is some damn fine indie pop. It’s so interesting, in fact, that I almost don’t want to call it “pop.” It’s got an Americana bend, some great harmonies and folk-y guitar work–just an all-around terrific album.

And it’s free!

I’ve never heard of this band before, but apparently they also released an EP way back in the middle of 2013 and since then they’ve upped their game. The album is just six songs long, but when every song is good it doesn’t make you miss filler. In fact, more bands should focus on a shorter, stronger set list.

Great stuff. You can download for free off Bandcamp, or you can step up and support these guys by paying what you like.

DARREN HAYMAN-Chants for Socialists

Okay, it’s a little weird to get a labor album in 2015–it sounds like something Woody Guthrie would have written–but it’s pretty good. Check it out.

DHRUVA KRISHNA-The Great Skedaddle (EP)

Check out these great instrumentals! Especially the covers of Willie Nelson’s Crazy and “Yesterday,” by the Beatles (which actually has vocals).

This is 1960s throwback music y’all. And if you like that, also check out his cover of Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry, also below.

All free!
