Car Seat Headrest : NPR Webcast / BBC6 Album Of The Day / Snapchat Demoliton Derby

(photo by @er_lynn)

Riding a crest of worldwide critical acclaim, Car Seat Headrest’s ‘Teens Of Denial’ was deemed BBC6’s ‘Album Of The Day’ earlier Tuesday, but as you’ve probably noticed, THE DAY IS ALMOST OVER. As the old saying goes, those who ignore the future are condemned to drink the Pabst, but the Matablog (recent) nostalgia fest continues with a fond look back at those glorious moments on the evening of May 23, 2016 when Car Seat Headrest’s show at Washington DC’s 9:30 Club was made available online via the auspices of NPR. The show will be archived for the next two weeks.

Finally, please follow us on snapchat tomorrow if your turn-ons include seeing things destroyed :

There’s No Denying Car Seat Headrest’s ‘Teens Of Denial’ Is Out Today (On Some Formats, But Not All)

(photo by Anna Webber)

Alright, after last week’s highly publicized drama concerning THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS of LP’s and CD’s being destroyed, we are very proud to announce that today, Friday, May 20 marks the official (digital) release of Car Seat Headrest’s hotly anticipated ‘Teens Of Denial’. Stereogum’s Tom Breihan calls it, “a sprawling concept album about what it’s like to be young and empty,” (“a powerful, cutting, incisive portrait of an entire generation that’s been economically fucked by previous generations’ greed”), while Pitchfork’s Jeremy Gordon testifies that TOD represents, “a firm declaration of talent”, calling Will Toledo, “an incredibly imaginative, insightful singer-songwriter.”  We’re no experts on the law (for instance, check that business about our destroying thousands upon thousands of LP’s and CD’s), but I’m pretty sure Tom and Jeremy wouldn’t be allowed to write these things if they weren’t 100% accurate.

In all seriousness, ‘Teens Of Denial’ is available today via digital download or thru your favorite streaming service. The amended and 100% LEGAL double LP and CD can be preordered via the link below. In addition, there’s some new tour dates which are highlighted in B-O-L-D.

An Announcement Regarding Car Seat Headrest’s ‘Teens Of Denial’

(Dear Friends,

We were so inspired by Radiohead and Beyoncé’s recent success with surprise albums outta-the-blue that we decided to do the REVERSE with Car Seat Headrest’s hotly anticipated ‘Teens Of Denial’ ; instead, we’re pulling the LP and CD versions from circulation on the eve of the album’s release.

OK, sorry, that’s actually not what’s going on. The real story is a little more complicated. We’d love to blame it on someone else, but for once, we can’t. Please read Will Toledo’s comments below. Thanks – Gerard)

=/\=/\=TEENS OF DENIAL MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT=\/=\/=

Life happens and sometimes not in ideal ways. If you’ve heard anything about the new album, then you’re probably aware that one of its songs made use of The Cars song “Just What I Needed”. Now, obviously, when we called the record ‘done’ and sent it off to be printed, we were working in full confidence that we had the legal side of it all worked out. We found out last week that this was not the case. I’m not going to get into the nitty-gritty of email chains and invested parties; suffice it to say that Matador (and I) were neither pulling a Banksy nor operating in ignorance of the law, but that we truly believed we had the issue resolved months ago, until last week.

As you may have heard, vinyl is being pulled from stores right now. There’s a total recall out, and all copies with the original version of the song will be destroyed. Nevertheless, Teens of Denial WILL COME OUT ON MAY 20TH, at least digitally. I spent the last 48 hours working on an alternate cut of the track, which is now called “Not What I Needed”. It’s not merely an edit – it is its own thing, about half a minute longer than the original track, and goes in a much different direction. Honestly, despite the apparent clusterfuck, I had fun doing it, and I think it’s a stronger song now. In any case I’ve grown up accustomed to working on an album right up to its drop date, so this is not a freak-out scenario for me. The album is going to come out on time and it’s going to be good.

The physical release will not come out on time, obviously. We’ll likely see a street date of sometime in July. I’m very sorry to everyone who was anticipating a preorder (it does sound GREAT on vinyl). It will be in your hands eventually. But it was very important to me that we keep the digital release for May. We’ve all been waiting long enough. Most of my music only exists online anyways, so it makes sense that this album should start the same way.

Thanks for your continued support, and I am very excited for this fucking record to come out already.

Official Statement from Matador Records :

The release date for the Car Seat Headrest album “Teens Of Denial” has been pushed back from May 20 to later in the summer due to a recall of physical product, so that a song containing elements of a composition by Ric Ocasek could be removed and replaced. Matador had negotiated for al icense in good faith months ago, only to be told last week that the publisher involved was not authorized to complete the license in the United States, and that Ric Ocasek preferred that his work not be included in the song. Matador regrets that it was not informed of this much earlier, and has made changes to respect Mr. Ocasek’s wishes.

Coming May 20 : Car Seat Headrest – Teens Of Denial

“Drunk Drivers / Killer Whales”

(photo by Anna Webber)

On May 20, Matador will be releasing the new Car Seat Headrest 2XLP/CD/digital album, ‘Teens Of Denial’. Though it’s the 13th album to date for Will Toledo, it’s the first CSH album to be recorded in a pro-style recording environment with a full band and acclaimed producer-person (specifically, Steve Fisk). Following the previously leaked “Vincent”, the album’s second single, “Drunk Drivers / Killer Whales” is available today. As Will explains, the song is about “post-party melancholia. Wishing to either be a better person or care less about the whole deal. Going home alone, in poor condition. The ‘killer whales’ bit is inspired by Blackfish, which is a depressing film.”

You have no right to be depressed
You haven’t tried hard enough to like it”

There are two kinds of great lyrics.  The first is the banger/anthem catch phrase: “Normal life is borin’ / but superstardom is close to post-mortem.” The second is more complex (and more rarely found): “Like a bird on a wire / Like a drunk in a midnight choir/I have tried in my way to be free” — with ideas, themes, and personae unfolding over the course of songs, contradicting each other, confronting the listeners’ preconceptions, like Pete Townshend, Morrissey, or Kendrick Lamar. 

Will Toledo, the singer/songwriter/visionary of Car Seat Headrest, is adept at both, having developed them over the course of his eleven college-recorded Bandcamp albums and his retrospective collection last fall, Teens of Style.

“I’m so sick of / (Fill in the blank)” or “It’s more than you bargained for / But it’s a little less than what you paid for” are more than smart, edgy slogans.  Over the course of Teens of Denial’s 11 songs, Will narrates a journey with his mysterious companion/alter-ego Joe that addresses big themes (personal responsibility, existential despair, the nature of identity, the Bible, heaven) and small ones (Air Jordans, cops, whether to have one more beer, why he lost his backpack). 

“Fill in The Blank,” the mission statement of the album, kicks things off — it’s a fist-pumping anthem about feeling lousy in an ill-defined way, the fear of settling into a routine of futility, and not wanting to deal with it.  Although it’s oddly joyful sounding, Toledo considers it the introduction to his angriest record yet. In that vein, “Vincent,” “Hippie Powers,” and “Connect The Dots” are about both fighting to hold your place in the crowd and to hold your drink, as well as DIY college house shows, and having no one to dance with, respectively.  Initially similar, “Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales” veers off in surprising directions, each piece flush with catchy, irony-free hooks.

At the heart of the album sits the 11:32 “Ballad of the Costa Concordia,” which has more musical ideas than most whole albums (and at that length, it uses them all).  Horns, keyboards, and elegant instrumental interludes set off art-garage moments; vivid vocal harmonies follow punk frenzy.  The selfish captain of the capsized cruise liner in the Mediterranean in 2013 becomes a metaphor for struggles of the individual in society, as experienced by one hungover young man on the verge of adulthood. 

Teens of Denial refracts Toledo’s particular, personal story of one difficult year through cultural touchstones such as the biography of Frank Sinatra, the evolution of the Me Generation as seen in Mad Men and elsewhere, plus elements of Eastern and Western theology. The whole thing flaunts a kind of conceptual, lyrical, and musical ambition that has been missing from far too much 21st-century music.

“I won’t go down with this shit
I will put my hands up and surrender
There will be no more flags above my door
I have lost, and always will be”

There are two kinds of great lyricists.  The first kind is one you find in books, canonized by time and a lifetime of expression.  The second has it all in front of him.  Meet Will Toledo.  Or at least one version of him.   – Geoffrey Weiss
