Car Seat Headrest

Great submission from Jon S of a band with which I was, indeed, TOTALLY unfamiliar with..... I
took his advice and listened to "Teens of Denial", and find it totally fab..... so I did indeed look up their story on Wikipedia, quite interesting as well, they have a quite large volume of work, which was self-released on Bandcamp prior to their signing with Matador Records. Also checked a few of their YouTube videos...... really good band, quite good...... one of those that I can't really think of ANYTHING to compare them to right off the bat (maybe Pavement, but really only in attitude, not really in sound which is more rocking) and isn't that perhaps the ultimate compliment?

Thus far, I have listened to but the one album (plus the few videos), but based on these, I recommend this highly...... hope to check out (or at least carpet bomb) the rest of their stuff at work tonight, but Jon S hasn't steered us wrong yet, so go ahead and check out this very good (so far), unknown (to ME at least) band, MORE potential "year end" list material, I'm pretty sure that "Teens of Denial" will be on there somewhere!

I'm going to try and make this easy on both of us. Listen to Teens of Denial by Car Seat Headrest, the best band you've never heard. If you like it, try Teens Of Style. If you like that, read the wikipedia entry for the history and maybe try some of the other things listed here - or all of them, its up to you.
