Mac DeMarco 2 - CAPTURED TRACKS
FILTER Grade: 83%
By Kyle MacKinnel on October 24, 2012
Don’t be fooled by the juvenile hijinks or gap-toothed smirk—Mac DeMarco is accomplished well beyond his 22 years. Having already impressed 2012 with the whimsical Rock and Roll Night Club, DeMarco, sans Elvis pitch-shift, delivers some quality tunes on 2. Mac’s two finest assets are his cocksure baritone and translucent tele-timbre, and “Freaking Out the Neighborhood” and “The Stars Keep Calling My Name” snag quickly with sprightly guitar lures, and the back half of the record mellows out into a sequence of folkier love songs. Dig the progression.
