Mac Demarco – Salad Days

Published on 16 March 2019 by

      Fred Thomas: ‘With his 2012 debut, 2, Canadian songwriter Mac DeMarco offered the world a look into his dazed but brilliant mind’s eye, his songs landing somewhere between a hallucinogenic re-imagination of ’70s soft rock, oddball outsider jams, and laid-back indie fare. …. The title track goes so far as to sport some “la la la”s that could have been lifted directly off The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society. Absent from this album are both the highly contrasting moments of dreamy-eyed indie rock and wobbly, Ween-indebted weirdness that came through more sharply on 2. With songs touching on themes of maturation, life in the public eye, and good old-fashioned romance, DeMarco has trimmed the fat both musically and conceptually on Salad Days, turning in a streamlined picture of his musical development. With more memorable tracks and a slightly more accessible feel, the album is less distracted and more tuneful than before without losing any of the freewheeling spirit that made his songs and persona so attractive in the first place. ‘
