Car Seat Headrest
Car Seat Headrest is the project of Seattle singersongwriter Will Toledo. With a vision that is both sweeping in scope and intimately personal, Car Seat Headrest embodies the DIY ethos at its best.
Car Seat Headrest began in 2010 in Will’s hometown of Leesburg, Virginia. Needing a place of solitude (and soundproofing) where he could record his often frantic vocals undisturbed, a 17-year old Will set up shop in the family car (hence the name). From this humble origin, he has since built up a catalogue of staggering breadth and depth. In the last five years there have been over ten releases under the Car Seat Headrest name, one of which exceeds two hours in length.
While the songs of Car Seat Headrest are often long and complex, they are anchored by irresistible melodies and a piercing emotional directness. Dispersed across the globe, the CSH fanbase is the definition of a cult following: several thousand internet denizens who deeply connect with Will’s intensely honest and unfiltered approach to writing and performing. With the release of Teens of Style, expect that number to greatly expand. This is Car Seat Headrest’s first release on Matador Records.
Naked Giants are a three-piece garage rock wildebeest from Seattle, WA. Grant Mullen's bluesy guitar
solos, Henry LaVallee's pounding backbeats, and Gianni Aiello's juicy basslines combine to form a
psychedelic whirlwind of fuzz. Their friendship ties together their various influences to curate a different
take on the traditional garage rock sound. Unlike what you've heard before, their spontaneity and their
stylistically diverse catalogue sets Naked Giants apart from the cut-and-paste garage outfit. They bring
together sounds influenced by the likes of Ty Segall and the Sonics as well as Pink Floyd and even Spinal
Tap with an audible energy that gets any crowd doing the twist.
The band jumped into Seattle's music scene by playing shows to hip teens in museums and to sweaty
college kids in packed house shows, and have carried the same pure rock'n'roll energy regardless of the
audience or venue.
