New Music Heaven : Car Seat Headrest

February 18, 2018

This week's New Music Heaven isn't necessarily all that "new." Car Seat Headrest has re-imagined and re-recorded Twin Fantasy, an album first recorded in 2011 and released on Bandcamp. Initially the solo project of Will Toledo, Car Seat Headrest is now a four-member band signed to Matador Records.

Toledo always knew he would return to Twin Fantasy, never considering the first version complete. Listen to his first attempt, recorded at nineteen on a cheap laptop, and you’ll hear what Brian Eno fondly calls “the sound of failure” - thrilling, extraordinary, and singularly compelling failure. Even so, even awkward and amateurish, Twin Fantasy gained plenty of listeners and admirers who connected to Will's powerful songwriting and emotional anthems. But now, with a full band, a bigger budget, and more time, Twin Fantasy sounds the way Toledo always imagined it would.

"Nervous Young Inhumans" is the fifth track on Twin Fantasy, and its release was accompanied with a new video directed by Toledo.
