Mac Demarco’s new album is a beautifully somber affair. Demarco laments ‘oh no, looks like I’m seeing more of my old man in me’ in one of his most heartbreaking songs to date. Refreshingly Mac is wary of making more commercial music as a result of his newfound success. Instead he is pairing his acoustic guitar with programmed drumbeats throughout an album that is more Neil  Young ‘On The Beach’ than the indie pop of his last few releases. Mac is in it for the long haul and establishing himself as a prolific writer making honest music.
