|CANT/Dreams Come True|
CANT is Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear (it might help you know that I think Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear are the same band, much the same way Blur and Pulp are [which is to say "they're not"]). It just seemed weird that a member of Fleet Foxes would release a side project album within such a short time as the band's Helplessness Blues (that's because Chris Taylor isn't IN Fleet Foxes--is it weird that I'm writing all this out?).
Then there's the fact that he's recording as CANT and not Chris Taylor. And while, from a branding perspective, it's entirely possible that there are 15 other Chris Taylors with albums out (oh, turns out that IS a very common name, including 2 notable video game creators, but only 4 musicians in Wikipedia's disambiguation listing). Okay, maybe it makes some sense to craft a unique identity if only to avoid disappointing fans of Love Coma.
I also went off on a tangent in which I wondered to myself whether or not Grizzly Bear was Animal Collectivizing (that's not an actual verb, by the way), but other dude from Bon Iver has done a similar solo outing recently, so it might be a more general trend (NOTE: dude from Bon Iver is Justin Vernon, other dude from Bon Iver is Sean Carey who also goes by SCarey or some similar conversion of his actual name in to a common word, just like Chris Taylor/CANT... strangely this isn't confusing to me at all).
Rather than try to put a label on the music, I'll simply say that, based on what I've heard, this would be a good album to listen to if you're hung over. CANT's Dreams Come True is released September 13th, and the first stop on the CANT concert tour is here in Portland, October 1 at Doug Fir.
