The good people over at Capture Tracks never ceases to come up with those brilliant forms of vinyl-deals..¬† For this series, named “The Wonderful World of Mac DeMarco”, they’re putting out a total of 10 seven-inch singles from the very talented Mac DeMarco. These will be spread over 5 shipments, with aprx 1,5 months in between. Each single will be rehearsal or ‚Äúother‚ÄĚ recordings my Mr. DeMarco with or without his band. You’ll also be recieving a 12″ box to hold these beauties along with the other extras that you’ll recieve along the way. There’s a few different shipping options for overseas, so be sure to check the details on this!
I’ve been totally lost in Mac’s wok since I discovered him last year, so for me this is a no-brainer! You might find the price to be a bit steep, but check in on the cool extras you’ll recieve along with the 7″s! Mac has aquired a solid fan-base over the years, so I urge you to get in quick to be sure to be onboard for this ride. If you’ve been following his earlier limited releases, you know how fast these have sky-rocketed in price! The limited, blue vinyl of his last album “Mac DeMarco 2” is now selling for about 150$…
I’ve attached a few of Mac’s old and new works for you to enjoy, none likely to appear in this series though..
Mac DeManiacs of the world, today we unveil The Wonderful World of Mac DeMarco 7‚Ä≥ Club Vol. 1. Every 6-8 weeks you will receive two 7‚Ä≥s in the mail featuring live, rehearsal or ‚Äúother‚ÄĚ recordings my Mr. DeMarco with or without ‚ÄúThe Boys.‚ÄĚ
Each two singles will feature a portrait of Mac (the first two by Nic Greasy and C/T Founder Mike Sniper) on colored vinyl. There will also be more special components along with each batch of 7‚Ä≥s, a mixtape? A print? A Mac DeMarco Lighter? A Badge? Who knows! Some 7‚Ä≥s will be two-songer, some will be a 7‚Ä≥ EP of 3-4 songs.
You will not know what‚Äôs on each 7‚Ä≥ until it gets out into the world, same with the color of the wax and the special surprises. We can only assure you: it will be worth it. There are only going to be 700, ever.
At the culmination of the series, you get a 12‚Ä≥ boxed set that holds all the 7‚Ä≥s in a compartment along with all the other components, so you can stare at the spine in your record collection all day and laugh at those who don‚Äôt. This final box will feature a Self-Portrait by Mac himself on the front as well as the ‚Äúfinal goodies.‚ÄĚ
Q: Am I still a Mac DeMarco fan if I don‚Äôt buy this?
A: Yes, of course. This is for lunatics.
Q: Why is it called Vol. 1?
A: So when we do Vol. 2 it‚Äôs not confusing.
Q: Can I get this at stores?
A: No, sorry.
Q: $100 is a lot for 10 7‚Ä≥s, can you explain?
A: Sure, the components will more than make up for what would normally be about a $65 purchase for 10 7‚Ä≥s, that extra $35 on top will be WELL worth it. (Goodies).
Q: Will Mac have these at shows?
A: Yes, but not the full product, so there‚Äôs a chance he‚Äôll have 2-3 of the 7‚Ä≥s with him when
you see his show but you might not get all of them‚Ä¶
Q: What‚Äôs with all the weird shipping options?
A: We realize it‚Äôs expensive to ship overseas. ‚ÄúBulk Shipping‚ÄĚ is for people who want to wait until all their components arrive to ship out in one big bang to save on shipping. This will be a LONG wait as there‚Äôs 5 separate ship-out dates almost a month and a half apart. That being said, you will save on shipping. This is not an option for US customers whose price is fixed. If you live in the NYC Metro Area pick the ‚ÄúPick Up at Shop‚ÄĚ option for no extra shipping fee. You will be informed of when they‚Äôre at the C/T Store for pick up.
Q: Can I order multiple memberships?
A: Yes. We encourage teaming with friends to save on shipping! Your orders will go out together.
Q: Will there be exclusive songs?
A: Likely live versions and weird versions of released songs and the occasional cover here and there, do not expect tracks written for this series as those would likely be for a separate release. This is for people who enjoy live and rehearsal recordings.
Q: Any overlap from ‚ÄúDemo‚ÄĚ releases?
A: No overlap from those recordings, there might be live versions of songs from the demos, but these will strictly be exclusive. There may/may not be an LP compilation of the Vol. 1 after the series is out.
