How he and Will each bring their own unique musical strengths to the creation of 1 Trait Danger’s funny tracks, Andrew coding his first video game “Cossett’s World” in conjunction with the release of 1 Trait Danger’s second album “1 Trait World Tour” earlier this year, and the inspiration behind the album, which pokes fun at the many absurdities of life as a touring musician; Why Car Seat Headrest barely drinks and parties while they’re on the road (and why they’re better off musically, and health-wise, because of it), opting instead to channel their energy into continually creating new music and #content; And, of course, Andrew’s beef with Kevin Parker from Tame Impala. ... "Fits perfectly on the passenger front seat of my Fiat Tipo 2. You just can’t make music without first creating your own environment around it...sound’s always gotta travel through something.

There’s tidbits, and when you beat the game there’s some secret shit for ya…My guess is almost no one will beat the game. And I’m glad those guys like comedy as much as they do, cause I would kill myself on tour if we couldn’t fuck around and have fun, it would just be so boring. So I think a lot of people were like “oh this is funny, I can relate to this.” I don’t think as many people are gonna be able to relate to an album about touring, but I think they’ll still find the comedy in it, cause it’s not like super esoteric shit — like anybody understands “Fly, Play, Travel, Play, Fly,” it’s not that complicated. So I made that song…I think I made that one first, we made “Saturday’s for the Boys” in Australia…and we had driven through France, months earlier, and seen the 1 Trait Danger, 2 Traits Securité sign, which roughly translates to “don’t tailgate people on the highway,” so 1 Trait Danger is like one car-length is bad, you want two car lengths, that’s good. Yeah, they can’t handle whenever Will tweets about anything…. But in terms of me helping Will with those songs, I’m not writing those songs, I don’t really have the vision, so me trying to produce them doesn’t really make much sense. Andrew’s skills on the drum set would elevate Car Seat Headrest’s indie rock to an arena-ready sound — but as I learned when I became a Car Seat Headrest superfan and in our conversation, his role and output have become so much more than that.

I am still curious about the music angle, like 1 Trait being more EDM and clubby, is that the kind of music you’re more into?
