What Grizzly Bear’s Been Up To Since Veckatimest

Yesterday, Grizzly Bear kicked off their new album cycle with “Sleeping Ute,” a tempestuous Rossen-penned gem that the comment section wanted to marry. (“I do!” – You guys.) The band’s still-untitled record comes 9/18 via Warp, and it is something we will probably talk about a fair bit around here, because it’s been three solid… More »

CANT – “Too Late, Too Far” Video

Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, the man masquerading as CANT, has made a video for “Too Late, Too Far,” one of the pheromone-soaked polyrhythmic slinkers from his debut solo LP Dreams Come True. The Richard Peete-directed clip opens with some “Vomit“-esque automotive chic, and then some mystic woods, cinematic smoke, VHS weirdness and fabric monsters take… More »

CANT – “Believe” Video

Director Jamie Harley’s video for CANT’s song “Believe” is a pretty unsettling thing. It’s made up entirely of found VHS footage of lights glowing in the sky, and people’s reactions to those lights. Get your Fox Mulder on below. More »

CANT – “Be Around”

CANT, the solo side project from Grizzly Bear member Chris Taylor, has already released debut album Dreams Come True; we posted his track “Believe.” But Taylor isn’t done releasing music.

Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands of 2011

Last year, right around the time summer turned to fall, we at Stereogum published our list of the 40 best new bands of the year. The idea of a “new” band is a pretty nebulous one, since many of the kids we listed were probably planning out their musical ventures in their basements since they… More »

CANT – “Believe”

Grizzly Bear bassist/producer/vocalist/resident blond Chris Taylor releases his full-length debut LP this fall under the CANT moniker. The record comes on the back of his debut 7″ “Ghosts“; both come bearing the stamp of Terrible Records, the Brooklyn-based label he co-founded (and often produces) responsible for material by Class Actress, Blood Orange, and Twin Shadow.

CANT – “Answer”

CANT is the solo project of Grizzly Bear bassist/producer Chris Taylor to which we were introduced via “Ghosts” (and its Class Actress remix). Now you can check out the haunting, 808s-and-heartbreaking, Twin Shadow-assisted album cut “Answer.”… More »

CANT – “Ghosts (Class Actress Remix)”

In its original instance, the debut single “Ghosts” from CANT aka Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor is a spacious, spectral statement of intent from the bassist-turned-producer-turned-label-chief, simultaneously submerged underwater in its low-end, airy and, yep, ghostly in its top-line filigree. Here “Ghosts” gets a pulsing, club-sick synth-struck makeover in the native vein of Class Actress, who… More »

New Cant (Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor) – “Ghosts”

We were recently introduced to Chris Taylor’s new label with Ethan Silverman, Terrible Records, via its first release Acrylics earlier this month. CT takes a production credit on that band’s debut EP, as he has for Dirty Projectors (Rise Above), Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson (self-titled), and Grizzly Bear’s Yellow House and Veckatmest. No surprise the… More »
