Five years and 11 albums ago, Bandcamp superstar Will Toledo brought Car Seat Headrest to life in the family car, his makeshift version of a home studio. In 2014, he relocated from Virginia to Seattle in time to form a band, sign to Matador (the label behind 2015's Teens of Style), and appear on an impressive number of top 10 lists. Some of his self-reflective songs, like the curiously titled “psst, teenagers, take off your clo,” are as short as 60 seconds, while others, like “Boxing Day,” top out at 15-plus minutes. Unless you’re John Coltrane reincarnated, a track that long could probably use an edit, but it exemplifies the way Toledo is following his own unique muse rather than engineering his material for maximum airplay.
