Today Car Seat Headrest announced their new album Making A Door Less Open will be released on May 1st via Matador Records.

“Can’t Cool Me Down” has been a part of the band’s live set for some time now and here it gets a bit of a more of electronic treatment. Which isn’t an accident, as the album 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.””

The band have also dropped first single “Paper Cup,” which features guest vocals from Amelia Meath of Sylvan Esso. The track is a notable shift in direction for the band who take on a disco-groove and sees them lean a bit harder into their jammy tendencies. That clean polished Real Estate sound is still very much there but this is a nice evolution for their sound.

U.S. Girls have announced that they will return with their new album Heavy Light on March 6th via 4AD. This is the Meg Remy-led project’s first album since their critically acclaimed 2018 album In a Poem Unlimited.

The album sees Remy looking inward, “recounting personal narratives to create a deeply introspective about-face. The songs are an inquest into the melancholy flavor of hindsight, both personal and cultural.”
