Car Seat Headrest 1

We’re kicking things off with heavy alternative from Car Seat Headrest‘s “Cute Thing”. It’s an alternative recording, mind you. This reworking of the young songwriter’s earlier work from 2011’s Twin Fantasy speaks to a greater reservoir of finely tuned resources and polished resolve. The original was a raw show of force in a time when indie may have seen a decline of influence, but in Will Toledo’s defense, he never felt this work was complete and has opted to use a deeper well of time to re-record the early work with Matador. “Give me Frank Ocean’s voice and James Brown’s stage presence / I will be your rock god when you’re rolling the dice”, says he who wows the crowds of festivals near and far. He now has that and more to work with under a larger host and we’re at the edge of our seat. Listen below.
