• Cant (aka Chris Taylor)

On Tuesday night Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear brings his new project Cant to town for the first time with a show at Lincoln Hall. I’m still trying to get my head around his recent debut album Dreams Come True (Terrible), which he made with George Lewis Jr. of Twin Shadow; it is a weird mélange of brittle, jacked-up electronic beats, dinky synth tones, and washed out melodies that wears its 80s vibe indiscreetly. At times Cant sounds much closer to a skeletal Yeasayer than his main group, but there’s also a wan hint of tightly-coiled R&B, a la D’Angelo or Prince (I repeat, just a hint).
