Amoeba Review

Mark Beaver, Hollywood 04/06/2017

Rough and ready poppy, punky songs not too far afield from early Beck, but with their own particular punch and texture. There’s an earnest, bratty wistfulness here that works.


07/06/2016

Taking a page from Pavement, Beck, Guided by Voices, and Dinosaur Jr., Car Seat Headrest’s Teens of Denial LP is a raw, melodic, and at times, raucous summer rock album. Songwriter Will Toledo doesn’t shy away from topics like depression and drugs, speaking intimately to the listener one moment before crescendoing into a punk rock shouting style chorus the next. There’s a lo-fi, DIY aesthetic to the album, but the sound is full and heavy, punctuated with the sudden appearance of a small brass section, swirling psych guitars, and Toledo’s insistent scream. The cathartic nature of Teens of Denial sneaks up on you; the songs are an exercise in sustained tension, often detouring into unexpected genre territory. It’s a wonderful showcase for Toledo’s arresting, insistent songwriting.
