Canadian singer-songwriter Mac DeMarco specialized in
lazy, relaxed, and witty folk-pop that harked back to the era of
Marshall Crenshaw, etc.
Rock and Roll Nightclub (Captured Tracks, 2012) oscillates between
the existential rocking of the new wave (Rock and Roll Night Club) and
the gentle bubblegum lullaby (She's Really all I Need).
Some of his stronger material appeared a few weeks later on
2 (Captured Tracks, 2012), such as
My Kind of Woman and especially Ode to Viceroy. The mood had
shifted towards a quiet and indifferent stance.
Salad Days (2014) continued in that vein with the likes of
Blue Boy and Chamber of Reflection, peaking with the
baroque Passing Out Pieces.
The atonal guitarwork of Goodbye Weekend and Go Easy provides
a welcome respite from the trite melodies.
