It might have the worst album title you’ve heard in your life, but Will Toledo knows a thing or two about crafting sublime indie-pop at this point so we’ll forgive it. Making A Door Less Open is the new Car Seat Headrest album, and the result of collaborating with 1 Trait Danger; a Toledo side project (he as alter-ego ‘Trait’) alongside drummer Andrew Kats. Making A Door Less Open finds Toledo in new and imaginative recording techniques, with the album recorded twice: once live with real instruments, and again in a MIDI, totally synthetic setup. Using parts of each, the record was stitched together for a completely unique and dynamic experience. Making A Door Less Open is available in an indie store exclusive pink vinyl.
