Puppy's Planet!!! Mac DeMarco

By Puppy Stopnik

Mac DeMarco is a Canadian singer/song writer, instrumentalist and self producer. During high school he was in several bands. Mac graduated and moved to Vancouver and released an album called "Heat Wave." The album sold out its 500 unit run. DeMarco was joined by Alex Calder and Jen Clement. They signed to Unfamiliar Records and toured with the Vancouver band "Japandroids" in 2009. Two years passed and Mac moved to Montreal to begin recording as a solo artist.

Failing to find work as a musician he participated in medical experiments for money and paved roads. In 2012 he released an EP titled "Rock and Roll Night Club." This impressed his new label "Captured Tracks" enough that they released a full album. This album contained slow grooves and low vocals. On January 21, 2014, DeMarco announced the release of his album "Salad Days." Mac says his mood for Salad Days was "I've been on tour for a year and a half and I'm tired." The album was listed #2 by NME in their top 50 albums list. He then started working on his album "Another One", which came out August 7, 2015. Mac says this track is a collection of love songs.

This is the kind of music that makes you feel like you're swimming in a pool of Jell-O. I've recently seen mac live and let me tell you, I feel like I'm still swimming.
