CANT – “Answer”
It’s very possible that not a single person in the music industry has challenged themselves more this year than Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear. Taylor’s decision to try his hand at a solo project is welcomed, but unexpected as he usually takes a back seat to chief Grizzly Bear songwriters Ed Droste and Daniel Rossen. Since he’s decided to go solo on this one, he not only has to live up to the Grizzly Bear name, but also carve out a little songwriting niche for himself. Our beliefs lie in him, though, especially when considering “Answer”, the first taste of his upcoming debut. A fair bit more electronic than we were expecting, but it goes down smooth and maintains that Grizzly Bear level of expertise all the while.
