Car Seat Headrest – Making A Door Less Open – Ltd Ed, Pink, Colored Vinyl, LP, Matador Records, 2020
Limited Edition Pink Vinyl. Making A Door Less Open is the 2020 album from Car Seat Headrest and the first set of brand-new songs since 2016’s Teens Of Denial. 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 alternative persona, ‘Trait.’ To realize this, the band recorded the album twice: once live with guitars, drums and bass, and once in a MIDI environment using purely synthesized sounds. During the mixing process, the two approaches were gradually combined using elements of each, with additional overdubs.
