    Another One

    Like the days of Steely Dan or Harry Nilsson releasing a classic album every year (or less) comes Mac DeMarco's Another One, a Mini-LP announced one year after the release of the meteorically successful Salad Days. Written and recorded during the downtime between a relentless touring schedule, Another One is an eight-track release that expands the arsenal of Mac's already impressive catalog, showing the maturity of Mac's progression as songwriter: it's a bit more refined, a bit more sophisticated, but nonetheless retains the guts and soul of classic Mac. Despite working at the same pace as artists like Creedence and The Rolling Stones, coupled with an equally unending schedule of touring and press, it's odd that Mac is labeled as a slacker. With two full-lengths and two EPs released and hundreds of sold out shows performed in the last several years, a recent late night television debut on Conan following a special performance on The Eric Andre Show, it seems, as Mac nears his 25th birthday, there's not a slack bone in the man's body. Great songwriters don't need to reinvent themselves; they just need to keep going and let the songs out in the world. Thus, here's Another One.

    Blessed

    Having moved all around Canada and settling nowhere, Walter TV are contemporary
    nomads. They formed their band in the basements and cottage-like houses of a
    beach town outside Vancouver.


    After Joe McMurray and Pierce McGarry moved to Montreal, they shared an
    apartment with a constant revolving cast of characters. In a space often overpopulated
    and reeking of cigarettes, they began recording Blessed. Simon Ankenman
    would come by periodically, and with him they would finish most of the recordings
    between there and LA. The band's two members, Joe and Pierce, were also busy
    touring with Mac DeMarco, acting as his backing band. Mixing and recording
    turned into a thing to do on the road.


    Although the group prefers tape recordings to digital, they have never been militant.
    Always trying to uphold their DIY sensibilities, Walter TV believes the music should
    speak for itself. It should come from wherever and whatever is available.

    Impersonator

    With rich vocals atop quiet looped waves of
    white noise, filtered synths and sparse thuds,
    Montreal songwriter Devon Welsh aka Majical
    Cloudz, is one of 2013's most unique and
    essential new voices.


    His 2012 Turns Turns Turns EP, an audacious
    distillation of Welsh's ideas that brought his
    vocals to the fore. "Musically, I wanted to try
    saying 'no' to possibilities, and create negative
    space in the songs," he says. "To put the
    emphasis on the voice and lyrics."


    Impersonator brings Welsh's songs into
    even sharper focus; its expressive power and
    swagger belie the extremely minimal music.
    These are intensely lyrical songs about death,
    patience, family, friendship, and desire.
    Welsh cites Elliott Smith and Arthur Russell as
    the two biggest influences on his songwriting.
    While Impersonator sounds like neither, Smith's
    lyricism is evident, as is Russell's ability to distill
    a number of seemingly contradictory stylistic
    ideas into a single focused statement.


    Though they stand stylistically apart from
    other artists in their Montreal scene - which
    includes Grimes, Doldrums, Blue Hawaii, Mac
    DeMarco, and others - Majical Cloudz are proud
    beneficiaries of its camaraderie.

    This Old Dog (Out Of Stock)

    Before you ancients out there turn your heads and scoff at the premise of a twentysomething
    rock-and-roll goofball calling himself an old-anything, consider this: Mac
    DeMarco has spent the better part of his time thus far writing, recording, and releasing
    an album of his own music pretty much every calendar flip.
    This Old Dog makes for his fifth in just over half a decade-bringing the total to 3 LPs and 2 EPs. According
    to the DMV, DeMarco is 26. But in working-dog years, ol' Mac here could easily
    qualify for social security. To stay gold, turns out all he needed was some new tricks.
    It was a little space-in time, location, and method-that inspired DeMarco while
    making the record. Moving from his isolated Queens home to a house in Los Angeles
    helped give the somewhat transient Canada-native a base, and a few more months
    on his calendar to create did their job as well. Arriving in California with a grip of
    demos he'd written in New York, he realized after a few months of setting up his new
    shop-complete with a few new toys-that the gap was giving him perspective (insert
    tooth joke here).


    Right off the bat, from the pops and clicks of the CR-78 drum machine and acoustic
    strums on the album-opening "My Old Man," the synth-drenched beauty of the
    second track, "This Old Dog," it's clear that DeMarco's bag is filled with new tricks
    indeed. This Old Dog is rooted more in a synth-base than any of his previous releases,
    but he is careful not to let that tactic overshadow the other instruments and overall
    "unplugged" mood of the work: "This is my acoustic album, but it's not really an acoustic
    album at all. That's just what it feels like, mostly," says DeMarco.


    Despite the changes considered during the creation of This Old Dog, Mac DeMarco's
    mid-twenties masterpiece, it's clear that the engine that motors him is in no
    danger of slowing down.

    Salad Days (Out Of Stock)

    "As I'm getting older, chip up on my shoulder..." is the opening line from Mac DeMarco's
    second full-length LP 'Salad Days,' the follow up to 2012's lauded 'Mac DeMarco 2.'
    Amongst that familiar croon and lilting guitar, that initial line from the title track sets the tone
    for an LP of a maturing singer/songwriter/producer. Someone strangely self-aware of the
    positives and negatives of their current situation at the ripe old age of 23.


    Written and recorded around a relentless tour schedule (which picked up all over again as
    soon as the LP was done), 'Salad Days' gives the listener a very personal insight into what
    it's all about to be Mac amidst the craziness of a rising career in a very public format. The
    lead single, "Passing Out Pieces," set to huge overdriven organ chords, contains lines like
    "...never been reluctant to share, passing out pieces of me..." Clearly, this isn't the same
    record that breezily gave us "Dreamin," and "Ode to Viceroy" but the result of what comes
    from their success. "Chamber of Reflection," a track featuring icy synth stabs and soulful
    crooning, wouldn't be out of place on a fantasy Shuggie Otis and Prince collaboration.
    Standout tracks like these show Mac's widening sound, whether insights into future
    directions or even just welcome one-off forays into new territory.


    Still, this is musically, lyrically and melodically good old Mac DeMarco, through and through.
    The same crisp John Lennon / Phil Spector era homegrown lush production that could have
    walked out of Geoff Emerick's mixing board in 1972, but with that peculiar Mac touch that's
    completely of right now. "Brother," a complete future classic, is Mac at his most soulful and
    easygoing but with that distinct weirdness and bite that can only come from Mr. DeMarco.
    "Treat Her Better" is rife with "Mac-isms," heavily chorused slinky lead guitar, swooning
    vocal melodies, effortless chords that come along only after years of effort, and the other
    elements seriously lacking in independent music: sentiment and heartfelt sincerity.


    We're only at Part 2 and 1/2 (one EP and two LP's in) into Mac's career. As you read this
    and as you hear the album on April Fool's Day of this year, he'll probably be on tour, or
    preparing for one... or maybe already writing new music. A relentless work ethic is something
    to be admired in today's indie music scene, but when it's of the quality Mac is giving us time
    and time again, it starts to turn from admiration to awe
