Car Seat Headrest on Fallon is What We All Need


It’s been a minute since we’ve heard anything from Car Seat Headrest. After revealing their latest album Making A Door Less Open, their livestream output hasn’t been as heavy as other acts. Now they’ve performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and the inventive performance of “Can’t Cool Me Down” is what we all need right now.

Opening with Trait on a controller, the bassist and guitarist play before the closet opens with Will Toledo unmasked and singing. The song has a different texture in this setting, yet it still works and works well. With Toledo passionately singing the lyrics, the guitar and bass are positioned with electronic drums and brass as well. It may not be what you expect especially when the drummer shows up in a mirror holding a film camera.

The performance can be viewed above. Making A Door Less Open is available to purchase on various formats from Matador Records. It can also be streamed or purchased in all digital outlets.
