There are few things that feel as great as finding a band that makes you forget about the two feet of snow at your doorstep. Car Seat Headrest does just that.
Formed by Will Toledo in 2010, this lo-fi psychedelic group has put out over ten albums on their Bandcamp. Teens of Style is a compilation album consisting of songs recorded from 2011 to 2015. They're expected to release an album in 2016 that contains entirely new music.
This band was put on my radar when I got back into the DJ booth of U92 a few weeks ago. What caught my attention was Toledo’s sharp songwriting. He sings of love, death, depression, and the likes.
“I want to close my head in the car door/I want to sing this song like I’m dying” he sings in the track “Something Soon.”
Though the topics aren’t as upbeat as the music, you’ll still catch yourself tapping your foot while listening to Car Seat Headrest.
