Car Seat Headrest - Teens Of Denial (Matador) 2016
When last year finally thousand of people were introduced with Teens of Style to Car Seat Headrest’s music it became pretty obvious that Will Toledo (the mastermind behind the project) was extremely talented. The new LP, and the project’s 13th full-length, sees CSH move forward sonically and in its ambitious efforts it makes more than reaffirm the quality of the past. The musical vocabulary used on Teens of Denial is awe-inspiring. Taking cues from acts that represent some of the best that’s been done in terms of songwriting – Nirvana, Pavement, Wire, Pixies, etc. – Toledo and company deliver a rock LP able to fulfill even the maddest expectations in almost every level. Beware because Car Seat Headrest might well be the next pinnacle of rock songwriting.
