Teens of Style Out October 30th Via Matador Records.
Car Seat Headrest is the nom de musique of one Will Toledo. Already a veteran of eleven self released albums (which have amassed over 25,000 downloads via Bandcamp), he recently signed with legendary indie label Matador Records for his latest effort Teens of Style.
‘Times To Die’ is the second track to be released from the album after the anthemic ‘Something Soon‘. The epic, near seven minute track features a capella sections, and horns alongside lyrical meditations on the Book of Job, Hinduism, Judaism, and the music business.
The artwork seen in the ‘Times to Die’ lyric video is inspired by a set of illustrations that William Blake drew which were in turn inspired by Scottish poet Robert Blair’s free verse poem ‘The Grave’.
