Mac DeMarco – January 2015
In association with Laneway Presents, triple j, Fasterlouder and Channel [V].
“Salad Days is no more or less than a great album in a tradition of no-big-deal great albums.” – Pitchfork (Best New Music)
“His best record yet?” – NME (9/10)
Possibly the most charismatic live performer on the Laneway Festival line-up (ever?) Mac DeMarco (real name, Vernor Winfield McBriare Smith IV) has a penchant for cheeky lyrics and a gap-toothed smile. After a succession of playful, buzzy albums, Canada’s most charming wild child released his third record Salad Days, which took a more serious turn despite plenty of oddball jams. DeMarco’s self-labelled style of ‘jizz jazz’ is groovy and melodic, and his live show will be fun, lewd and possibly a little nude.
