Making A Door Less Open is the twelfth studio album by American indie rock band Car Seat Headrest, released in May 2020 via Matador Records.

Car Seat Headrest is an American indie rock band formed in Leesburg, Virginia, and currently located in Seattle, Washington. The band consists of Will Toledo (vocals, guitar, piano, synthesizers), Ethan Ives (guitar, bass, backing vocals), Seth Dalby (bass), and Andy Katz (drums, percussion).

Making A Door Less Open is the new album from Car Seat Headrest and the first set of brand-new songs since Teens Of Denial (2016).

Created over the course of four years, Making A Door Less Open is the result of a fruitful ‘collaboration’ between Car Seat Headrest 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.

In this way, Making A Door Less Open sees Toledo embarking on new and imaginative roads to song-writing and recording, placing emphasis on the individual songs, each with its own “special energy,” rather than attempting to draw a coherent storyteller narrative through the album as he has in the past, resulting in his most dynamic and open-ended work to date.

A prolific songwriter, Toledo took his moniker from making early recordings in the private environment of his family’s car, releasing a dozen self-recorded and produced albums online and building a tightknit following. Toledo has since gone from an empty five- seater to selling out tours and filling festival main stages. Teens Of Style (2015) was a collection of songs from his early years. The band’s proper Matador debut, Teens Of Denial, followed in 2016 and catapulted them to overnight commercial success and widespread critical acclaim, as well as highlighting Toledo as a prodigious lyricist. 2018’s Twin Fantasy, an epic re-imagination of an album originally released in 2011, demonstrated newfound scale, depth and ambition.

This album is an indies record store limited edition on pink coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve, pressed in the UK via Matador Records.
