Watch Car Seat Headrest Perform "Bodys" on <i>Jimmy Fallon</i>

Last night, Car Seat Headrest performed “Bodys” from their revamped version of Twin Fantasy, out now via Matador Records, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Will Toledo and co. performed the near-seven-minute alt-rock jam in four minutes, cutting out a few bits here and there, and they even added some bongos. Toledo commented mid-song, “Yes, this is the chorus cause we’re on live TV and we only have four minutes to play this song. We’re gonna go to the second verse.” Later, the song’s instrumentals stop and Toledo chimes in again: “Normally we do a bit of a breakdown here, but we only have 50 seconds left, so we’re just gonna go right into the final chorus.”

Toledo will be touring in support of his reimagined album, recently adding fall shows to his band’s already-extensive schedule. Previously announced dates take the band through Europe and the U.K., with summer stops on the U.S. West Coast. The now-confirmed fall leg of the band’s North American tour kicks off Sept. 5 in Minneapolis and extends to a Sept. 27 stop in St. Louis. The band will play in cities throughout the U.S. and Canada, including two back-to-back shows at New York’s Brooklyn Steel.

Paste’s Ben Salmon wrote of Car Seat Headrest’s Twin Fantasy, “Sonically speaking, Twin Fantasy ‘18 sounds more or less like an HD upgrade over the bunny ears of Twin Fantasy ‘11.” Read Paste’s full review of the album here.
