"You have no right to be depressed, you haven't tried hard enough to like it."
I came of age musically in the 90s, so I am predisposed to like any music that has that sweet indie rock vibe. The oddly named Car Seat Headrest is the project of Will Toledo, who released a bunch of albums on Bandcamp before breaking through with his first "proper" album, "Teens of Style." Appropriately, his follow up, "Teens of Denial," is on fabled indie label Matador, which released albums by luminaries like Pavement, Guided by Voices, Cat Power, and Yo La Tengo. Some of those bands are in Toledo's DNA, but there's nothing retro sounding about him, from the sparkplug energy of the music to his droll lyrics. Though it runs long (70 minutes), it doesn't feel padded, but, rather, that Toledo has so much to get out. This will restore your faith in indie rock.
Better than average crunchy pop-rock nuggets with melodies galore and amped-up, hooky choruses that recall Nirvana and Guided by Voices. While not a perfect album, there's much to like here
