Hipster’s favourite, Mac DeMarco, offers up another taste of what’s to come with ‘On The Level’. Following the more acoustic-minded ‘This Old Dog’ and ‘My Old Man’, Mac shows once again that he’s at his best with the slower jams. It’s another contemplative number giving a further glimpse into his relationships with his kin. “This record has a lot to do with my family and my life right now and the way I’m feeling,” he says. “One of the main goals for this record was trying to make sure I retained some kind of realness. That’s the bottom line.”
Mac (guitar, vocals) and band – Jon Lent (bass, percussion), Joe McMurray (drums) Alec Meen (keys) and Andy White (guitar) – will tour Europe and North America surrounding the release of This Old Dog with two shows at London’s 02 Academy Brixton on May 30th and May 31st. The May 31st date is now sold out, with a very limited number of tickets available for the May 30th show here. Mac has also added live dates in the UK for November 2017 with shows in Nottingham, Liverpool, Glasgow and Manchester. Additionally, Mac is playing a slew of festivals including Coachella, Primavera Sound, Oya, Lollapalooza, Governor’s Ball, as well as a headline slot at End Of The Road.
Mac DeMarco’s This Old Dog is available for pre-order now. All iTunes pre-orders come with Instrumentals of This Old Dog and instant downloads of ‘My Old Man’, ‘This Old Dog’, and ‘On The Level’.
