It's only June, but there are critics who have already named Car Seat Headrest's Teens Of Denial their top album of 2016. After recording 11 self-released albums in his bedroom and car (hence his band's name), songwriter Will Toledo has released his first studio album of new songs for Matador Records. It's a deep, personal, honest, sarcastic and relatable look at his post-college life — if Toledo doesn't watch out, he is going to be called the voice of a generation.

These songs sound fantastic both on record and onstage at World Cafe Live, where Car Seat Headrest performed live for WXPN's 16th annual Non-COMMvention. Hear the session above.
