Per the official press release –

Making A Door Less Open, the new album from Car Seat Headrest and their first collection of entirely new music since 2016, is out now on Matador Records—get it here.

Making A Door Less Open features previously released tracks “Hollywood”—which is chart bound at Alternative radio with adds from nearly 30 stations nationwide including New York’s ALT 923 and L.A.’s  KROQ, “There Must Be More Than Blood,” “Can’t Cool Me Down” and “Martin.”

Created over the course of four years, Making a Door Less Open is the result of a fruitful “collaboration” between Car Seat Headrest, led by Will Toledo, and 1 Trait Danger, a CSH electronic side project consisting of drummer Andrew Katz and Toledo’s alternate persona, Trait. Read a statement on the album from Toledo, as Trait, here.

Comprised of Will Toledo, Andrew Katz (drums), Ethan Ives (guitar) and Seth Dalby (bass), Car Seat Headrest has either released 11 or three albums to date, depending on the way you look at it. A prolific songwriter, Toledo took his moniker from making early recordings in the private environment of his family’s car, releasing a dozen self-recorded and produced albums on Bandcamp and building a tight-knit following. Toledo has since gone from an empty five-seater to selling out tours and filling festival main stages. 2015’s Teens of Style was a collection of songs from his early years. The band’s proper Matador debut, Teens of Denial, followed in 2016 and catapulted them to overnight commercial success and widespread critical acclaim, as well as highlighting Toledo as a prodigious lyricist. 2018’s Twin Fantasy, an epic re-imagination of an album originally released in 2011, demonstrated newfound scale, depth and ambition.
