Mac Demarco Improvises at The Mann

Source: Rock On Philly

Everyone’s favorite cig smoking, Jameson swigging-while-playing Canadian Mac Demarco made a stop in Philadelphia in support of his latest record, This Old Dog, and he did not disappoint.

Demarco played old and new classics from all three albums, and the crowd ate it up entirely. As soon as he stepped on stage the crowd greeted him with different variations of “Dad, Daddy” etc., which prompted him and his bandmates to chant back “Mommy” throughout the night. That’s the magic of a Mac Demarco show, everything feels so wonderfully improvised and laid back, yet still so tight and structured.

Video of The Day #282: Mac DeMarco

Video of The Day #282: Mac DeMarco

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

Some might say that the truth is best served with humor. In Mac DeMarco‘s new video for “One Another,” the humor is out in force, with an unlikely co-star nearly stealing the show. As for the song, it’s dreamy, with a lovely languidity that floats along in a pretty haze. Pretty darn great, and that’s the straight up truth.
