Primavera Sound Barcelona



Never has a clown made such comforting music. Mac DeMarco’s crooked smile is a mine of memes and silliness, as anybody who has seen him live can confirm.  However, the voice of this Canadian artist is another thing completely, the odd comment about Randy Newman has been dropped. The only thing that the author of This Old Dog seems to take seriously is building up trust with his audience, letting them know that whatever happens, he’s their friend. That is why, we suppose, he shared the address of his residence in Fort Rockaway, Queens, at the end of one of his songs, personally inviting his fans to drop in and say hi and have a coffee. Thanks Mac I take mine black with one small spoonful of sugar.
