Hi-Res
Here comes Mac, and on his own label! After a misleading opening of crooner country where the loops repeat relentlessly (Here Comes the Cowboy), we understand that DeMarco quickly put the first one aside. Already laid-back, the Canadian lays back even further. Slow speed, nonchalant orchestration, the Angelino displays a beautiful detachment. While the world is beating ever faster, Mac DeMarco is playing against the tide and against the clock. This appreciation for slowness manifests perfectly with the thirteen downtempo tracks in which the intimate is so wonderfully depicted. The 2019 Mac version of the lonesome cowboy lives on illusionary and disillusioned loves, and is frank but contradictory. He hates the city but wants it just as much. "Sick of the city locked in with all the pretty people / Need a vacation somewhere that no one ever dreamt to go / Out in the country tending to all the pretty cattle / Turns out the cowboy dreams of the city." A few groovy interludes (Choo Choo) add nuance the pop synth (On the Square) or to the cheap guitar (Hey Cowgirl) that Mac has become known for. A tip: let the last song (Baby Bye Bye Bye) play out to enjoy the delightful funk digressions mixed with his crazy laughter. The big festivals and successes of Salad Days (2014) and This Old Dog (2017) have certainly not painted him into a corner. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Is it the approach of his 30th birthday (and that’s still three years off) that is making Mac DeMarco so melancholy? Not to suggest that the wonder boy of the American indy scene has lost any of his boyish humour, his off-beam stories, his radiant second-hand guitars and his joyful and rickety synths: just that the general tone of This Old Dog was marked by a certain detachment, or a somewhat pensive mood... His mini-album Another One of 2015 already had about it some of the flavour of this 2017 vintage. All the DeMarco hallmarks are there, to be sure. In particular, his dead-eye sense of melody, which will have us humming in our next few thousand showers... More acoustic, and less electric than he has been, the Canadian plays with bossa-nova tempos (Dreams From Yesterday) and summery pop (A Wolf Who Wears Sheeps Clothes), choosing to foreground his keyboards over his guitars. Above all, he brings out a more personal side of his character. Maturity, without a doubt, and even more clearly, the desire to show that he is a serious songwriter. Because for all his affected nonchalance, Mac DeMarco has delivered a record that's very touching, and deeper than what we might have expected. © MZ/Qobuz

Mac DeMarco never forgets to draw together the various demos, snippets and embryos of his songs. First published for Record Store Day 2016, Another (Demo) One brings together 16 more or less completed tracks, some of which appear on his album Another One in definitive versions. It is above all a document destined for hardcore fans of this extraterrestrial in the American indie scene. However, this record is not conventional garbage but more of a zoom in on Mac DeMarco’s creative process, a kind of study on his heightened sense of pop melodies and the genius of his writing. © MZ/Qobuz
