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.”
