introducing... Car Seat Headrest
Need some new music to end your week? Don't worry, we've got this... Car Seat Headrest is the project of Seattle-based Will Toledo. Toledo has earned himself a name and following in the underground scene after his self-released 11 albums have hit more than 25,000 downloads on Bandcamp. The project was set up in Toledo's home town of Leesburg, Virginia and when recording vocals he needed a place of solitude so set up in the family car at just 17 years old. Since then, Car Seat Headrest has been producing intimate songs touching on themes of youth and death, love and depression and drunken parites. Teens of Style is Toledo's latest album since relocating to the Seattle suburbs and the first release to be recorded with a full band. It's a record from a project that is breaking out of the constricting label of lo-fi with fuzzy guitars and Julian Casablancas stlye vocals.
