DOWNLOAD: CANT - "Ghosts" (MP3)

Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor aka CANT
CANT

In 2009, Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor put out first single "Ghosts" under his solo moniker CANT (MP3 above). He's now set to release his first full length for the project, Dreams Come True (which "Ghosts" is not on). The album comes out on September 13 on Chris' own Terrible Records (that he started with Ethan Silverman). George Lewis Jr. of Twin Shadow, whose debut album Forget was produced by Chris Taylor and released on Terrible Records, collaborates with Chris on the new album.

A full tour is about to be announced and that includes a NYC show at Bowery Ballroom on October 25. Tickets for it go on sale Friday (6/24) at noon.

The October tour also includes a Detroit show, a Cambridge, MA show, and Moogfest in Asheville, NC. All dates TBA.

Twin Shadow, who also play Moogfest, have their own upcoming tour too. They'll play Maxwell's on September 6 and Webster Hall on October 7. Tickets go on sale Thursday (6/23) at 9 PM for the Maxwell's show and Friday (6/24) at noon for the Webster Hall show.

Grizzly Bear meanwhile are hard on work on a new album. On June 17th they wrote that they "just want to thank you all for all the support on here recently, we've been enjoying checking in during this recording process. working, recording, writing, working, recording, writing. Hope everyone's summer is going well! :)"

Hey all,

this comment:

-----
"This is Chris. Thank you all for taking the time to blindly judge my album and my person without ever meeting me or hearing my solo output. I welcome discussions and criticisms but these comments seem downright distasteful and loaded with misguided angst. You do not have to appreciate my work but please refrain from these vicious, anonymous attacks on my character. I welcome you all to attend my performances and legally access my music. Please take a moment to actually understand the value of my musical efforts. Thank you, good day to all."

why does every grizzly bear side project sound so similar to grizzly bear!?

Can't even imagine how boring this is going to be.

Chris, I appreciate your efforts. Dont worry about these dicks, they do not represent anyone. They are just losers who stay inside.

Hey Chris, how about you go blow yourself instead?

how's moonlighting as a pump up the volume-era christian slater doppelganger working out for you?

Posted by Anonymous | June 21, 2011 2:40 PM

Chris, if you don't change that tampon evey once in awhile, you could go into septic shock.

Pump up the volume....classic!

Does it really you people feel that good to spew hatespeech from a distance at earnest, creative people & those who support them?

A forum for that behavior is what this site has become, and I'd say that reputation is quickly starting to overshadow the site itself. BV would be wise to take some kind of action / make some changes asap.

Glad we have all these budding young indie rock fascists to clamor for people's speech to be restricted on here.

Posted by Anonymous | June 21, 2011 3:49 PM

What good is achieved when free speech is nothing more than wasted words?

What good is achieved when young hipster Nazis start telling the rest of us what to think and feel?

I have no real thought son this since I haven't heard the record yet. So why am I commenting? I don't know. Well....see you later!

don't sweat it chris..These who CANT comment.

Haven't heard it, but 2.5 strikes against for nicking an established act's name (regardless of the difference of the words, you say it the same). "Can't" he be Vampire Bear Wolf Unicorn Feathers or whatever the kids are naming their bands? That seems to pass for unique enough these days.

Really enjoying that "something has to be done" about people taking (well-deserved, in my opinion) potshots against an incredibly commercial indie rock artist, but no one argues for censorship when people posting disgusting sexual/misogynist comments about female artists. Great priorities.

hey all, Chris Taylor did not actually comment on this post, as confirmed by the real Chris Taylor was contacted by a friend who saw this post. I've updated it above to reflect that.

Posted by brooklynvegan | June 22, 2011 8:42 PM

Why do I get the feeling this solo pursuit is all for attention and not for the "art" of it...
