Twin Fantasy (Face to Face) is the eleventh studio album by American indie rock band Car Seat Headrest, released on February 16, 2018. It is a complete re-recording and reworking of the band's sixth studio album, Twin Fantasy, released in 2011. The CD release is bundled with the original 2011 album. Twin Fantasy began as a solo album released by Car Seat Headrest's lead singer/songwriter Will Toledo on November 2nd, 2011
The new Car Seat Headrest album, Twin Fantasy, is a completely re-recorded version of an album that Toledo originally released in 2011. There’s not much precedent for this sort of do-over-if this were film, say, it’d be like Steven Soderbergh re-making Sex, Lies and Videotape, which I could actually see him doing at some point. Twin Fantasy isn’t just another one of Toledo’s Bandcamp albums.
This version of Twin Fantasy is also considered an extension of and reflection on the original album’s narrative that is told from the perspective of a young, 19-year-old Will. This is evident through several changes made to the lyrics in this version and Will directly stating this in an interview about the album on his Tumblr. Twin Fantasy (Face to Face) Q&A. Featuring 1 Trait Danger. Producers Will Toledo. Acoustic Guitar By Degnan Smith & Will Toledo.
Rock music has a bad habit of looking backwards, and the same can be said of Car Seat Headrest’s Twin Fantasy. It’s a neat inversion that yields some of the most thrillingly ambitious indie rock compositions of this decade, though one that occasionally exhausts the listener into submission.
With the new Twin Fantasy, Toledo has done the unimaginable: created a reboot that matches its original in tone, passion, and excitement.
