I’m reading a book right now called The Story of Modern Pop, and usually when I’m reading a book like that that goes through a lot of music, I’ll just have my computer on hand and every time they mention an artist or a song I’ll look it up, and if I enjoy it I’ll add it to the playlist.

I think that it is possible to find the right indie label who is going to support you in your career, and I think there are very little restraints other than the restraints that everybody has to go through these days. And I think we’re doing that enough in the live show that I can feel content with the actual albums, saying “okay, we can save the jam for the live show,” and just make the song. It’s been remarkable to see the shift over the course of just a few years as Will’s performance skills have evolved to meet the demands of international visibility and playing for packed, sold-out crowds across the world. And Bandcamp has its own sort of field of music, and that’s good for stuff that is completely unknown. Katie Ingegneri: I feel like there’s a definite literary influence on your style. It’s not exactly a cover as much as a remix, with Will interpolating his own lyrics, including a snippet from “Beach Life-in-Death” (“in the mall in the nighttime / you came back alone with a flashlight”) — while he had also interpolated in a lyric of Frank’s, recorded backwards (“it was the start of nothing”) in the 2018 version of BLiD. I think it’s easier to be a musician, cause the overhead costs are super low when you’re starting out, because you can do everything on your computer, and there’s still an industry around it, which means there’s still a lot of people with money who don’t know what to do with it. We’ve gotten a few glimpses of where they’re going via the TIDAL documentary, which showcases the development of new track “Stop Lying To Me,” and via fan-made videos from overzealous concert-goers such as myself — I snagged a video from the official live debut of “Can’t Cool Me Down,” the first song of their 2019 opening tour date on Valentine’s Day in Boston. “I don’t like being in the studio without ideas,” he says. One of Will’s signature covers — a song he performs solo— has become hip-hop artist Frank Ocean’s indie rock-inspired masterpiece “Ivy,” a track Will’s been performing since Car Seat Headrest’s fall 2016 tour (Frank Ocean’s Blonde was released in August 2016). Creating music from that immediate musical perspective, rather than thinking about it and trying to generate something out of my own mind. “Right now I’m optimistic about what’s on the table,” he says.

The material I’m working on right now, there’s sort of a spread of lengths of songs that are in the pool right now, but they’re all sort of concerned with that mentality — if there’s a way to make this shorter and more succinct and more direct, let’s do it, and I think that’s where my mind needs to be, because after years of writing these longer pieces, I sort of naturally write longer pieces, and if you’re not careful about that that can lead to a lot of bloat and less interesting material. So when I write now, it does feel less like writing, and it can come from a variety of sources — just putting notes together, putting beats together, it just sort of accumulates. But someday it’s going to happen. And why does so much newer stuff just kind of leave me blank?”, As an experiment and a challenge to himself, he started listening regularly to whatever was on top of the Spotify charts — wildly popular songs that he’d normally never come anywhere near hearing by choice, like Post Malone’s “Rockstar.” “That’s a song that I didn’t like at all the first time I heard it,” he says. So I was working on that, and I was also working on my friend Degnan’s album — [the band] Naked Days — and we’re actually still working on that now, but I’m hoping to be finished with it soon. One person found this helpful.

Will would definitely be in demand as a rock producer if he went totally in that direction, and as we discussed in our conversation, he sees it as a good way to keep his skills sharp — but certainly nothing beats being a songwriter and creator yourself. She’s actually one of two albums, or artists, that I’ve been working with…that album was in the works for a while, I went onto that right after Twin Fantasy, and then I did my mixes for it, and then she was working with another engineer on it for a while. It’s a drag to not be able to do that for an indefinite amount of time. Even the still-living, legendary rock writer Robert Christgau, who I just saw mentioned in Holly George-Warren’s new Janis Joplin biography for having been front row at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, digs Will and Car Seat.

He’s a pretty regular dude who also happens to be a “rock star,” whatever that means in 2019 — and he’s certainly helping to deconstruct the previously toxic notions of what it meant to be a rock star in eras past.

Although these first few tracks remain heavily in Car Seat’s signature indie rock realm, from what he and Andrew have been hinting at in conversations, and checking out his extensive Spotify lists, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if they start working more electronic music, or soul, or pop, into what they’re doing. I guess the structure isn’t quite worked out yet, but it feels like it’ll be one of the longer pieces.

As early as I can remember, I’ve always enjoyed the whole process of listening to music and even just looking at an album before I listen to it, and sort of imagining what’s gonna be on there, and I think one thing that always intrigued me was if an album had especially long songs on it — it just sort of really made me question what could be on there. From a musician standpoint, I really don’t feel like there’s a great injustice in the way streaming services pay artists, but I think that artists who have a problem with it, they’re coming from a very different perspective. “Usually, once I finish something, I go through mourning, like postpartum depression,” he says. 415.

In 2018, when Car Seat Headrest toured the U.S. to support a new, full-band revision of Toledo’s early solo album Twin Fantasy, they mushroomed onstage into a muscular seven-piece live act.

While just about any musician gets their start in both playing and songwriting by covering artists they admire, there’s something special to me about the covers Will has done, on his own or with the larger band. Do you think that’s something you’re going to continue with into the future? He’s molded and shaped his distinctive voice into a highly versatile instrument, a singer in the tradition of Dylan or Neil Young or Leonard Cohen, artists who may not have had Sinatra-smooth voices but whose emotional honesty and relatability is enhanced by their poignantly raw, authentic style. Whereas the success of many rock gods of the past hinged on their ability to be highly flamboyant, the hard-living ids of their audiences, Will being the frontman of Car Seat Headrest is like the fulfillment of the fantasy of being a rock star for every quiet or unconventional kid who ever picked up a rock record and dreamed of being on stage.
