CD of the Week from Mac DeMarco
Mac DeMarco is a Canadian songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. Born in British Columbia (and living in Brooklyn since last year), DeMarco has been making music since 2008, self-releasing a series of albums under the name Makeout Videotape. In 2011 he signed with the Captured Tracks label and began releasing his music as Mac DeMarco. Salad Days is his second full-length record. The tracks have a definite home-made, deliberately paced feel, yet his sound is tuneful and accessible. DeMarco claims to still use the same guitar he bought for $30 when he was sixteen!
