Somewhere between the Strokes and Jonathan Richman is Seattle’s own Car Seat Headrest (Will Toledo). He’s the Babe Ruth of modern, blasé bar-rock, the Sultan of spot-on, and the Great Bandbino, having released his 11th studio album, Twin Fantasy (Face to Face)—a complete reworking of his 2011 Twin Fantasy—earlier this year at the age of 26. There’s simultaneously sensational angst and stoicism in Toledo’s vocal compositions and a vying of attention between his romanticized schmaltz and his freewheeling wordplay. Let’s hope that Toledo and locals Naked Giants will charm us with their collaborative Talking Head’s cover.
