Car Seat Headrest – “Vincent”, New Dates


“Vincent” – directed by Quinn George

“Fighting to hold one’s place in the crowd, to hold one’s drink. It’s about shouting to be heard, but what’s the point, no one’s saying anything worth listening to. It’s about wanting to leave but not wanting to go home. The music is too loud.”

Along with some new confirmed live dates (below), Tuesday sees the premiere of a new Car Seat Headrest song, “Vincent”, taken from the forthcoming new album, ‘Teens Of Denial’ (details forthcoming). The above video is an edited version of the song ; the full 7 minute, 46 second version can be heard any of the streaming and/or download services listed below.

Kurt Vile & The Violators : North American Tour Starts Today

I was availling myself of those popular ride-sharing services in North Austin very late one night last weekend and Kurt Vile’s “Pretty Pimpin'” came on over the stereo courtesy of the local NPR affiliate. Thinking I was performing some sort of surreptitious market research, I quizzed the driver about how often the station in question play the song (non-stop, apparently) and whether or not he was a fan.

Anyhow, perhaps my tone wasn’t appropriately reverential ; maybe it was the way I passed out 3 minutes into my new friend’s explanation of how many Kurt Vile records he owns, but either way, I was politely asked to exit the vehicle several blocks (or was it miles?) from my destinations (we might’ve been in the woods). Maybe he thought we were reenacting a scene from “The Big Lebowski”, I really can’t tell you for sure. But this unpleasant experience has taught me a couple of important things :

a) KV and The Violators are hitting some big rooms starting tonight and unless you wanna have your nose pressed against a cold fence trying to hear what’s going on, you’ll procure a ticket ASAP.
b) don’t pester your ride share driver with any music or music-business related chit-chat. These men and women work very hard and who cares if they’re into Kool Moe Dee, Lady Pank or the Pointed Sticks? The important thing is they’re trying get you home in one piece without hearing some incoherent story about the time you beat Richie Kotzen in a game of H-O-R-S-E.
