RIYL: jizz jazz
Label: Captured Tracks
The world’s most revered cockamamie Canuck cuck, Mac Demarco, has been on a wet and wild ride since he dropped his debut full-length, 2, in 2012. Â Some of you fell for his Cheshire Cat gap-toothed grin, others swooned to his warpy slackerÂ songwriting style and the rest ofÂ you subscribed to his carefreeÂ PMA ethos. Â Whichever route you took to get on the Mac Track, hello and welcome. Â You’re safe here.
Album #4 is upon us, a quick follow-up to his previous quick follow-up, and it appears that Mac is wiser in his ways, seasoned in his experiences, and another day closer to emphysema. Â First single My Old ManÂ finds DeMarco treading through the pains of maturity, coming to terms with the realization that he’s a lot more like his father than he previously thought, but while the lyrical themes may be veering away from his normal wheelhouse,Â This Old DogÂ continues to wade through the lazy melancholy river motifs that he’s perfected over the last few albums. Â Have no fear, Macaholics…you’re gonna enjoy this one just as much as the others.
Captured Tracks has a deluxe package that’ll come with 1 of 5 randomly-colored vinyl variants, an alternative gatefold cover and a mystery poster. Â God, I hope it’s a tasteful nude.
