Car Seat Headrest Is Gloriously Morose In 'Teens of Denial'

This review has been revised from its original version. An excerpt of the Car Seat Headrest song "Just What I Needed/Not Just What I Needed" used an unlicensed sample of The Cars' "Just What I Needed." That excerpt has been removed from the review at the request of Matador Records.
