Car Seat Headrest
“(Joe Gets Kicked Out Of School For Using) Drugs With Friends (But Says This Isn’t A Problem)”
You know what’s cool about having a 20 minute journey door-to-door to work? Fucking EVERYTHING mate. That extra forty minutes is vital. Think about that. Forty minutes saved on an either-way journey. So eighty minutes. Multiply that by however many working days you have in your week (we have lots and lots of these), then by how ever many working weeks you have in one calendar year (same again). That’s a lot of minutes. Think about what you could do in all that time. Read a book. Eat some cheese. Do more of the shit that you do anyway. Whilst we were in a rather emotional state on Friday evening – sure, we were drunk, but was also reminiscent of leaving our familial stomping ground to go to university for the first time amongst semi-emo thoughts and outward comments along the lines of “BUT WHAT IF NO-ONE LIKES US, WAAAAHHHHH” – last night we took the time to count our lucky stars that we find ourselves in the company of a great many friendly faces and great conversationalists. Indeed, we just had a rather fulfilling chat about things like who’s the next great whoa-core band likely to be, or trying to ascertain the point where it all went wrong for Limp Bizkit was in fact when Fred and co started actually taking themselves seriously. Y’know, shit that truly concerns us. Speaking of taking things seriously, we’re very much prepared to get invested in current Track Of The Day’er Car Seat Headrest if only on the strength of this offering wonderfully-named (Joe Gets Kicked Out Of School For Using) Drugs With Friends (But Says This Isn’t A Problem). We will of course shorten this to Drugs With Friends in future, given that we’ve had and still currently have very little time on our hands today. Indeed, Car Seat Headrest sounds like a band name that we could have otherwise sworn that we’ve heard around the proverbial block a few times and therefore should be way more familiar with than we feel like we are, but we’re stuggling to confirm this mentally. After the briefest of searches, we can indeed reveal to all and sundry that these guys/guy have/has been trucking for a couple of years now. Which is nice. We can also reveal after looking at the “About” section of this lot’s Facebook page that they’re currently based in Seattle, but hail from Leesbury, both in the United States of America but in different States therein. Knowledge, etc. Observing this song in isolation and notwithstanding that we are seemingly unable to stick this into a genre per se (thank fuck for that, right?), we’re vividly imagining elements similar to that of Big Deal, Telekinesis and Frank Black present here. Bless our vivid imagination, and all that sail within…it.
