Two in a row, guys. I’m not messing around this week.
Mac DeMarco is a Canadian musician from Edmonton that looks like someone I could’ve gone to high school with. While critics refer to his music as a type of “slacker rock,” Mac himself dubs it “jizz jazz.”
He plays with a kind of jazz guitar, Steely Dan-influenced style that interacts well with his sleepy vocals. At times, with my eyes closed, it would be hard to separate his voice from David Bowie or Lou Reed’s. “Ode to Viceroy” is off his second album of this year alone, 2, and floats along like something that’s existed for a decade.
