The Cannanes

The Cannanes

Arty Barbecue


The opening line on this record, with its mention of frost in June, might seem a bit of a stretch, until you realize this band isn’t from the Northern hemisphere. Minimalist without sacrificing melodic intensity, the Cannanes shape their music through broad instrumental strokes, letting lyric and vocal harmony define the song. Arty Barbecue might be full of simple music, but the Cannanes seem to know the exact right amount of artifice to use. Ajax Records, P.O. Box 805293, Chicago, IL 60680;
