Album ‘2’ released 22 October 2012 on Captured Tracks
Due to release his first album proper, aptly titled Mac DeMarco ‘2’, when it really should be ‘1’, shows you that it’s probably best not to expect anything before you hear this record. While his first EP’ Rock N Roll Night Club’ was a bizarre combination of lipstick, Elvis vocals and sleazy lyrics, ‘2’ is a concerted effort to produce a cohesive work that showcases Mac’s natural ability as a songwriter, singer and producer, while still keeping the bizarre videos and interviews.
Mac’s first UK tour comes up this November, and Mac shares the stage with label mates DIIV in Manchester- a stand-out gig sure to be one of the best from Captured Tracks.
19 November – London, Birthdays
20 November – Manchester, Deaf Institute w/DIIV
21 November – Bristol, Start the Bus
22 November – Brighton, Green Door Store
“Mac’s insistence on sounding like a bona fide Yank madman is enough to cement his burgeoning reputation as the Ariel Pink with tunes.” NME
