VIDEO: Car Seat Headrest's Tiny Desk Concert for NPR


In the latest Tiny Desk Concert, Will Toledo aka Car Seat Headrest had a little help from his friends as well as one of the tiniest drum sets that I've ever seen. Set list includes: "The Drum", "Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales" and "Sober To Death". You might notice that one of those songs is new... You also might not notice. Maybe you can't take a hint.
