Slacker riffs and twanging guitars are Mac DeMarco’s specialty, combining his craziness with his laid back attitude to create songs that both relax you and make you wonder what on earth he gets up to.
The Canadian has released 2 solo albums, Rock and Roll Night Club and a second release, imaginatively titled ‘2’ as well as previously releasing several tracks and albums under the name Makeout Videotape.
Upon signing to the Captured Tracks label in 2012 Rock and Roll Night Club was released, followed up only 3 months later by ‘2’ to great critical acclaim, being longlisted for the Polaris Music Prize in 2013. The album features possibly his most popular song to date; Freaking Out the Neighbourhood.
Mac is back in 2014, he’s got a new album with a title just as weird as you would expect; Salad Days is to be released in the UK on 31st March. This is to be followed by a world tour featuring only 4 UK dates. Happily one of them is Manchester’s Ritz on 21st of May.
