We’re thrilled to announce the latest signing to our Mattitude imprint, Will Toledo, aka Car Seat Headrest. This prolific artist (né Will Toledo) comes to us having already crafted an 11-album catalog of staggering depth, all self-released on Bandcamp, which has gained him an obsessive following.
Now on his Matador Records debut, Teens of Style, we witness Toledo presenting his intricate ideas with more clarity and refinement than ever, delivering an enthralling collection of songs destined for wide acclaim.
On the record, Toledo has taken material from the first three years of the band’s existence and reworked it to generate some of the most realized arrangements to date. Drawing material from 3 (2010), My Back Is Killing Me Baby (2011), and Monomania (2012), Teens of Style provides a concise overview of the band’s many sonic and emotional facets, with the songs ranging from electronic psychedelia to punky anthems to melancholic acoustic numbers. Here’s the video for lead album track ‘Something Soon’ .
