Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear) and Ethan Silverman (Lust Boys) Announce First Terrible Records Releases, Includes Taylor Solo Tracks

Not to be confused with the FL label from the late 90s, but Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear and Ethan Silverman of Lust Boys have started an indie label based out of Brooklyn, Terrible Records.
The duo has been having events for the label since at least July, but the first records to come out will be a 7-inch series of Taylor's first solo releases, and a previously unreleased song by Arthur Russell.

CANT, as Taylor has chosen to call his project, offers the aptly-titled "Ghosts." The song is a haunting underwater trip through his familiar sonic territory that is found on each Grizzly Bear release. "Come To Life" is a previously unreleased folk track written and recorded by Arthur Russell in the late '70's. Its origins are a mystery but the beauty of the song shines brightly. Initially intended for inclusion on last years compilation of unreleased folk, pop, and country tunes called Love Is Overtaking Me.

Audika Records will release the digital download of the song on 10/13. The CANT 7-inch release is limited to 1000 copies and will be available at the Terrible Records website and select retailers.
