Spectrum Culture concert review: CANT

CANT (solely composed of Grizzly Bear producer and multi-instrumentalist Chris Taylor) came to town the first weekend of this month, and I covered his show at the Doug Fir for Spectrum Culture.

Playing basically everything off his solo debut, Taylor–and his backing band’s–acumen was apparent, but so was his relative newness with this side of the art. (Upon being recalled for an encore, Taylor struggled to think of a tune, admitting “We’ve played everything but track number five”–a minute-long interstitial.) Album standout “Believe” got good treatment, turned into a belabored dream of wandering, gritty bass lines and synth flourishes, its subdued sound a good fit for the Doug Fir’s finicky system as Taylor crooned, “Things I haven’t shown you, you won’t believe.”
