Car Seat Headrest have announced new album Making A Door Less Open which will be released May 1 via Matador. It's their first record of all-new songs since 2016's Teens of Denial and marks a decidedly different MO, as frontman Will Toledo explains:

Andrew, Ethan, Seth and I started going into the studio to record songs that had more finished structures and jam on ideas that didn’t. Then I would mess with the recordings until I could see my way to a song. Most of the time on this album was spent shuttling between my house and Andrew’s, who did a lot of the mixing on this. He comes from an EDM school of mixing, so we built up sample-heavy beat-driven songs that could work to both of our strengths.

Each track is the result of an intense battle to bring out its natural colors and transform it into a complete work. The songs contain elements of EDM, hip hop, futurism, doo-wop, soul, and of course rock and roll. But underneath all these things I think these may be folk songs, because they can be played and sung in many different ways, and they’re about things that are important to a lot of people: anger with society, sickness, loneliness, love...the way this album plays out is just our own interpretation of the tracks, with Andrew, Ethan and I forming a sort of choir of contrasting natures.

You can hear this new approach on the album's first single, "Can't Cool Me Down," which definitely has more of an electronic side to it. Watch the lyric video below.

Car Seat Headrest have also just announced a spring North American tour with Twin Peaks that includes three nights at NYC's Brooklyn Steel on June 9-11. Tickets for those shows -- and the whole tour -- go on sale Friday, February 28 at 10 AM local with an album preorder presale starting today at 3 PM local.
