When Mac DeMarco announced his follow up to the brilliant ‘Salad Days’, I went a bit hard in the pants area. I’m totally besotted with Mac. Everything he does pretty much makes me laugh, from alter ego Dave Fuck to that interview he did with his Ma.
‘Another One’ is the brand new 8 track mini-album from DeMarco, scheduled for release this August through Captured Tracks. Not long after the announcement came the single ‘The Way You’d Love Her’, a poppy, dream-like slice of what we’ve come to expect, which is no bad thing. A welcome return no doubt.
Title track and new single ‘Another One’ continues in this manner, but with more of a sun soaked vibe to it. The video to accompany it is hilarious and terrifying in equal measure, with the hideous Michael Jackson mask that makes an appearance likely to leave a long, lingering impression. The shots of Mac playing in the sea genuinely made me guffaw, so if you’ve not seen it yet then you’re in for a treat.
Mac will be playing a number of UK shows later this year, with a Manchester date at the Albert Hall on the 12th of September. Full details can be found here, and you can check out the new video below:
