Everybody’s favourite cowboy, Mac DeMarco has single handedly made pop cool again. His signature chorus soaked guitar runs and simple yet poignant lyrics have crafted, dare I say it, some of the catchiest songs of all time.
The thing that makes Mac DeMarco so great is his talent for effortless simplicity. Never one to overdevelop a song, Mac expertly strips parts to make them work and talk together. Every song on Salad Days is built with great care and the perfect amount of instrumentation and not a drop more. Perhaps even more endearing is Mac’s generally carefree persona and outlook on life. Perhaps one of the only artists I could watch nonstop interviews of all day and never get bored.
A musician every aspiring songwriter should study, melt away with everyone’s favourite party boy, Mac DeMarco.
