When the then 21-year old Mac DeMarco released his debut 'Rock and Roll Night Club' 12" in the Spring of 2012, it was accompanied by a barrage of bizarrely funny promo videos, wildly unhinged live performances and a not-so-subtle disparate range of promo photos. The glam facade was purely that—an image that was manufactured for fun to confuse the stiff world of indie music journalists. But it wasn’t all a jest, as that EP covered a whole range of music styles that were latent in the former Makeout Videotape front-man’s already impressive array of cassette-only releases. The sincere and warm Mac who sang “Only You” was the same lipstick-wearing character that crooned “Baby’s Wearing Blue Jeans,” and that suited him and his listeners just fine.  

Six months later, Mac returned with his first full length, 'Mac DeMarco 2', a concerted effort to produce a cohesive work that showcases Mac’s natural ability as a songwriter, singer and producer. The results were immediately rewarding and presented Mac's music in the most sincere way possible, no matter how much fun he has in his wild videos or live shows.  

DeMarco's second full-length LP ‘Salad Days’ is the follow up to Mac DeMarco 2. Amongst the familiar croon and lilting guitar, the opening title track sets the tone for an LP of that features a maturing singer/songwriter/producer — someone impressively self-aware at the ripe old age of 23. It just keeps getting better! Come see for yourself when Mac takes the stage at this year's RBC Bluesfest.
