Car Seat Headrest's highly regarded 2011 work was recorded on a cheap laptop when Will Toledo (aka Car Seat Headrest) was only 19, and it was, as Brian Eno fondly put, "the sound of failure": "thrilling, extraordinary, and singularly compelling failure." Despite Eno's commentary, the album would be downloaded over 33k+ times and has lead to Car Seat Headrest forming something of a cult following. Twin Fantasy - Mirror To Mirror was eventually re-recorded in 2018 with a full band, but the grit and feeling of the original 2011 version holds a special place in our hearts. Highlights include "Cute Thing," "Beach Life-In-Death," "My Boy (Twin Fantasy)," and "Bodys." Comes pressed on white colored vinyl, and housed in a gatefold jacket with custom inner sleeves.
