The Moment with Brian Koppelman - September 27, 2016 - 56:00

At 24, Will Toledo is the lead singer-songwriter for one of this summer's hottest bands, Car Seat Headrest. He's also the youngest guest to ever be on The Moment. Today, Will talks about how he thinks about structuring an album (6:00), trying not to repeat the narrative of his predecessors (14:00), and how he receives feedback for his songs (28:30). Plus, Will and Brian discuss the wide audience Car Seat Headrest is reaching with its new album (37:00) and why it's important for artists to shape their own work rather than be shaped by their audience (41:30). And on a final note, Will is already working on the next album and he's thinking it may be a little different (55:00).You can check out Car Seat Headrest's latest release, Teens of Denial, by clicking here.Shownotes: @BrianKoppelmanLeave a Review: Moment is brought to you by Blue Apron.
