Before Mac Demarco was known as Mace D to the world , he was Makeout Videotape to the indie music world of Vancouver, BC. After creating a slew of EPs, he was joined by his buddy Alex Calder. The product of that duo was 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. Ying Yang 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 called 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. Mike Sniper got himself involved with T/F as Ying Yang is distributed by Mike’s Omnian Music Group.
