Car Seat Headrest
Status: Blowing Up
Why You Should Pay Attention: Car Seat Headrest's driven mastermind Will Toledo makes languid indie rock with whirring, no-bullshit musings; and it's a critical smash. His debut Teens of Style was one of Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2015, and cheekily-entitled follow-up Teens of Denial is slated to release later this year on his new home of Matador Records. Though he told Rolling Stone that his music is bred from nerves and "reflects introversion," Toledo will be busting the bedroom door open and hitting many SXSW stages.
