New Music Of The Day: Car Seat Headrest – Times To Die (Video)

Following his signing to Matador and general ‘going overground’ over the past few months, Car Seat Headrest has unveiled a new video from forthcoming Matador debut ‘Teens Of Style’. Out on October 30, the album is a compilation of sorts, collecting and building on some of Will Toledo’s best Bandcamp work over the past few years.

‘Times To Die’ riffs on a few of his favourite things, with a meticulously executed Beach Boys’ influenced vocal and a barbed lyric about failed attempts at getting signed previously. Wrapped up in a gloriously lo-fi production, this track’s almost the place where Jeffrey Lewis and Mac DeMarco might meet.


And hey – if you like that and you’re in New York City next week, make sure you come to NME’s frankly shitkicking – if we do say so ourselves – CMJ party in Manhattan on Wednesday night. Check the poster below, which was designed by our mate Shaky Kane, and scroll down further to read more.


Perfect Pussy, fronted by Meredith Graves, will headline at the Santos Party House venue on October 14, alongside Protomartyr, Downtown Boys, Dilly Dally, and London band Shopping, among others.

CMJ badgeholders can get in for free, while there are also tickets on sale to the public.
