Album Review: Car Seat Headrest – Making A Door Less Open

Posted on 15 May 2020 at 8:04am

Will Toledo has heard it all before about productivity, having released a vast amount of material as Car Seat Headrest before and after getting a label deal in 2015.

It’s a catalogue which only a few could say they’re completely familiar with, but if you like you can probably skip straight to Teens Of Denial, the album on which his complicated lo-fi rock finally broke out from its chatboard niche.

The naïve might’ve advised the Virginian to let the critical acclaim stick a little, but this being the 21st century, staying still is poison to many artists. Speaking about the thought process behind Making A Door Less Open, Toldeo revealed: ‘I didn’t have any concrete ideas, beyond something that did not sound like Teens of Denial.’

As if to emphasise the deliberate break with any usable past, in recent promotional work he’s been pictured wearing a gas mask. Odd enough, but this veiled character is also now officially an alter ego called Trait, the new identity conceived via the once jokey EDM side project 1 Trait Danger and now being used as the accelerant to hotwire a radical change in direction. If repetition was never going to be a thing, then Trait, the unreal boy, has gleefully broken the CSH mould.
