  • Car Seat Headrest's new album, "Making A Door Less Open", delivers the first new songs since 2016's "Teens Of Denial". The tracks were created over the past four years as a fruitful collaboration between Car Seat Headrest and 1 Trait Danger, a CSH electronic side project consisting of CSH drummer Andrew Katz and Toledo's alter ego Trait. So the album ended up being recorded twice: Once live with a full band line-up of guitars, drums and bass, and once in a MIDI version, with only synthesized sounds. 

    After Will Toledo released between eight and 12 albums at the beginning of his work as Car Seat Headrest until signing with Matador Records in 2015, depending on how you count (here the spirits argue), the four-year break since "Teens of Denial" now feels like a lifetime for the Seattle-based musicaholic. 

    "I wanted to make something that was different from my previous records, and I struggled to figure out how to do that. I realized that because the way I listened to music had changed, I had to change the way I wrote music, as well . I was listening less and less to albums and more and more to individual songs, songs from all over the place, every few days finding a new one that seemed to have a special energy. I thought that if I could make an album full of songs that had a special energy, each one unique and different in its vision, then that would be a good thing ", Toledo writes.
