Background and recording

From the description of the No Passion video- "Teens of Style" is a collection of older Car Seat Headrest songs, rerecorded in 2015 to make a sonically expanded new release.

From Interview magazine,"At the time that I was originally recording the songs, I don't think I considered them to be the final versions," Toledo tells us over the phone from Seattle, where he now lives. "They were just self-recorded and I wanted to do them properly at some point."

Speaking with Stereogum, Toledo said: "I’d had the idea for a while, including when I was originally recording them; it felt like the best I could do at the time, rather than something I’d really be happy with forever. That was part of the appeal with digital albums, is that they could feel less ‘official’, and I could mess with them long after their technical release date. I often went back and tweaked stuff on past albums I felt could be better, but I also wanted to do a more comprehensive overhaul of the best of it, to give it new life. And I’d always thought ‘studio’ when thinking of that, but by the time Matador came around I felt I was working well enough in the home environment to do the first album that way, and that’s what ended up happening. Everything on Teens Of Style I recorded and produced myself. We got a professional, Abe Seiferth, to mix the drums and bass for Something Soon, but everything else is me. I figured this would be my last chance to do something that still sounded & felt like the ‘old’ Car Seat Headrest before we started doing bigger work."

Performers on the album include the live lineup from the time of Car Seat Headrest's signing with Matador. Will Toledo with Andrew Katz on drums and Jacob Bloom on bass.
