CHRIS TAYLOR / GRIZZLY BEAR: REFINE FOR NOW
“Those times when your heart felt kind of warmed, like a glowing lightbulb was inside of you.”
It is a rare moment when a band or musician creates a sound that defies comparison – which is why American underground phenomenon Grizzly Bear have been on our wish list for some time. Creating a strange and strangely addictive sonic universe, the Brooklyn Quartet nonetheless and unexpectedly succeeded to attract not only a dedicated following, but also mainstream praise.
With bassist Chris Taylor having just released his first and irresistably groovy solo album as CANT, which turned out to be a grand surprise exercise in sloppy funk, all the more reason to make a wish come true and dedicate our latest issue #29 to the prolific and eclectic musician, producer and master cook, who was even kind enough to share the recipe for an entire dinner with us.
In a beautifully relaxed conversation, Chris Taylor talked with mono.kultur about the ,agic of making music, why perfect does not necessarily mean good and the meditative effect of motorcycling.
For this issue, Chris Taylor not only shared a dinner recipe with us, but also opened his archive of personal photographs for this issue. And since Taylor is a man of many talents, we thought it only appropriate to include a poster as cover to expand the world of Terrible into all directions.
