Mac Demarco- Salad Days (Captured Tracks, 2014)
With this melodic, mellowy album, DeMarco is becoming more accessible. He sticks to psych-rock and lo-fi, but also ventures a little. While ‘Pop’ is too far, it wouldn’t be too far to call it poppy- relative to his earlier work. The songs are tuneful while remaining esoteric and brittle, which is something I’ve seen only DeMarco accomplish.
