Car Seat Headrest is excited to share the latest single ‘Fill In The Blank’ from his forthcoming record Teens of Denial out Friday 20 May via Matador Records / Remote Control Records.
The track was named Best New Track by Pitchfork – read the review here.
Teens of Denial is the thirteenth album in Car Seat Headrest’s (aka 23-year-old Will Toledo) oeuvre, second on Matador, and first to be recorded in a proper studio with a full band and producer (Steve Fisk).
On Denial, Toledo moves from bedroom pop to something approaching classic-rock grandeur and huge (if detailed and personal) narrative ambitions, with nods to the Cars, Pavement and William Onyeabor. By turns tender and caustic, self-loathing and self-aggrandizing, he conjures a specifically 21st century mindset, a product of information overload, the loneliness it can foster, and the escape music can provide.
