Product Description

Product Description

Salad Days, is the follow up to 2012's lauded "Mac DeMarco 2" which saw the Edmonton local propelled into the limelight. Written and recorded around a relentless tour schedule (which picked up all over again as soon as the LP was done), "Salad Days" gives the listener a very personal insight into what it's all about to be Mac amidst the craziness of a rising career in a very public format. The lead single, "Passing Out Pieces," set to huge overdriven organ chords, contains lines like "..never been reluctant to share, passing out pieces of me.." Clearly, this isn't the same record that breezily gave us "Dreamin," and "Ode to Viceroy" but the result of what comes from their success. "Chamber of Reflection," a track featuring icy synth stabs and soulful crooning, wouldn't be out of place on a fantasy Shuggie Otis and Prince collaboration. Standout tracks like these show Mac's widening sound, whether insights into future directions or even just welcome one-off forays into new territory. Still, this is musically, lyrically and melodically good old Mac DeMarco, through and through. The same crisp John Lennon/Phil Spector era homegrown lush production that could have walked out of Geoff Emerick's mixing board in 1972, but with that peculiar Mac touch that's completely of right now.

Format: Vinyl
I can see this band and album getting a lot of praise and rightly so, they're both excellent. It still has all of the popiness, lyrical fun and twangy guitars fills of it's predecessor but with some heavy synth numbers thrown in, leaving the listener spell bound. If you still need convincing, there is a really good (not to mention hilarious) 30min documentary on YouTube, which is definitely worth checking out.

I bought the vinyl album from the Liverpool HMV store (shout out to the lad who helped me find it), it was slightly cheaper than on here. Hopefully they'll play a show in the midlands in the not to distant future. Also looking forward to their Marc Riley session this week. PS this my first ever review, I should probably stick to engineering.

Another hit from the one and only Mac Demarco.
Chamber of reflection is a real highlight.
Worth every bit of the price.

Solid record, got a lot of critical acclaim. It's a nice sound, probably good road trip music.If I had a convertible and a country that had sun.
