BeforeÂ Mac DemarcoÂ was known as Mace D to the world , he was Makeout VideotapeÂ to the indie music world ofÂ Vancouver, BC. After creating a slew of EPs, he was joined by his buddyÂ Alex Calder. The product of that duo wasÂ Ying Yang, 13 lo-fi pop songs that feature a Mac with a lot less on the line. The songs are a bit more experimental than Mac’s newer stuff.Â Ying YangÂ features mantra-like songs, guitars that are compressed to hell, minimal production, but also vocals that ring through the ‘chaos’.
The record is coming out on an imprint calledÂ Thursday/Friday, a company run by one of Mac’s friends. The dude’s name is Chaz (I think), and he has a bunch of tattoos and does a ton of cool different things.Â MikeÂ SniperÂ got himself involved withÂ T/FÂ asÂ Ying YangÂ is distributed by Mike’sÂ Omnian Music Group.
