    Salad Days

    "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

    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.

    Year Of The Snake

    Los Angeles' SILVER SNAKES are back with their second full length, "Year of the Snake," the follow-up to their 2011 critically acclaimed debut, "Pictures
    of a Floating World." "Year of the Snake," which was named one of Alternative Press' "Most Anticipated Albums of 2013," sees the band's vocalist,
    guitarist and principle songwriter, Alex Estrada, whose "day job" is recording bands including Nails, TouchÉ Amore and Joyce Manor, stepping behind the
    board to produce his own band. Roger Camaro, of No Motive, who co-produced "Pictures," worked with Estrada recording drums and basic tracks for the
    record. After the recording process in LA, the tracks were sent to Salad Days Studios, in Baltimore, to be mixed by Brian McTernan, whose resume'
    includes acts influential to SILVER SNAKES, such as, Cave In, Engine Down, Thrice, and Circa Survive. The resulting eleven songs see SILVER
    SNAKES going in a darker direction than they had visited on "Pictures," and finds their dynamic range expanding; the band has grown louder and more
    dissonant on tracks like "No Color," while getting quieter and more desolate on tracks like "Lock."

    Elvis As Recorded At Madison Square Garden

    Of all the live concert recordings released during Elvis Presley's lifetime, none carried the historical significance of his long-awaited New York City shows at Madison Square Garden in June of 1972. His first performances in the Big Apple since the '50s, the 'King of Rock 'n' Roll' performed four sold-out shows at the famed venue, the weekend of Friday through Sunday, June 9-11, 1972 and sold in excess of 80,000 tickets in the process.

    This 2LP reissue from Sony Legacy is culled from Elvis' legendary performance at the Saturday evening show, originally issued on a single LP by RCA Records on June 18, 1972, just eight days after the concert took place. The album was certified Gold less than two months later.
