Grizzly Bear Bassist To Release Solo LP

Written by Barnaby Smith on June 20, 2011

It was reported around here last month that Brooklyn indie acolytes Grizzly Bear were in the first stages of putting together a new album, the follow up to 2009’s acclaimed Veckatimest. Now, news has emerged that bass player Chris Taylor is to release a solo album this September.

As Pitchfork reports, Taylor released a single Ghosts on his own in 2009, recording under the name of CANT, and releasing on his own label Terrible Records. CANT remains his moniker, with a first full-length album on the way called Dreams Come True. It’s out on September 12 in the US and September 13 outside the US, through Warp.

Multi-instrumentalist Taylor, who joined Grizzly Bear in 2005, teamed up with Twin Shadow‘s George Lewis Jr on the album – Taylor having produced Lewis’s own album Forget. Dreams Come True was recorded in a bedroom connected to what used to be Allaire Studios in New York State, where Grizzly Bear recorded Veckatimest.

Grizzly Bear had previously announced they would be starting work on a new album around the end of May.

The Dreams Come True tracklisting is:

Too Late, Too Far
The Edge
She’s Found a Way Out
Dreams Come True
Rises Silent
