Watch Car Seat Headrest’s Television Debut | Playing Mercy Lounge Sept. 7

Car Seat Headrest-620

To call Will Toledo prolific might be an understatement.  The creative force behind Car Seat Headrest, Toledo released an impressive 11 records via Bandcamp while he was in college, and, reportedly even first started recording vocals in the backseat of his car for privacy, thus the name of the band.  Toledo’s DIY ethos, dynamic and emotive songwriting, and sometimes piercing and heady subject matter, caught the attention of Matador, where the mere 23-year old signed in 2015 to release his debut, Teens Of Style.  His first proper full band release, Teens Of Denial, dropped early this year, and has already been topping mid-year “best of” lists across the board.  Car Seat Headrest made their television debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last week, and you can watch them performing Teens of Denial opener “Fill In The Blank” below.  After you are finished with that, you really should dig into the full record, and definitely grab $15 tickets to see their Nashville debut at Mercy Lounge on Sept. 7.
