A Savior for Indie Rock

Over the past few years, indie rock has increasingly indistinguishable from pop. The preponderance of bubble gum fluff like Grimes and Kristin Kontrol have taken over once proud indie rock stations. Thanks to brilliant lyrics, screaming guitar licks and propulsive drumming Teens of Denial is here to help put indie rock back on track. I can't imagine there being a greater album this year.

Will Toledo is Great

Very upset that I'm only just now finding out about this band. Will Toledo has been doing this for years on Bandcamp and I've only had about a week with him. But I'm so happy that Car Seat Headrest is finally known to me. There's so many weird things here and there that are funny, cool and moving through the lyrics and instrumentation that make this album a great listening experience. I am very happy that he's found a home at Matador Records and that he still continues to be very one on one with his long time fans via Bandcamp and other ways. I'm eagerly awaiting whatever Will Toledo has in store for us down the road.

Jonathon Richman

Will Toledo as a yound artist eases in to the waxed poetic sounds of Jonathan Richman treatment of lyrics. The production and insight is befitting of more modern and determined topical artist. In all of his records to date, he's already provided deep insight into a young man who seems to understand the faults of his generation and their prescriptions and those of the generaton, or generations before them. His music rattles from blended melodies to hard stops to frittering with acapella, which adds to the adventure. The production is full like a quick squirt from the gooey center of a bubble candy from a bubble tea drink. This album certainly is its fullest in production value but some of his other albums rival the topical content. Looking forward to his long and full career.
