Mac DeMarco 'This Old Dog'


#1

Some details about his new album…


#2

Can’t wait but not blown away by the first two tracks from it


#3

I’ve not given them a listen yet but will do so after work…

After the reading the article though, I couldn’t help but think isn’t this his fourth not third album? Does Rock and Roll Night Club not count as an LP?


#4

I would have assumed it was

Rock and Roll Night Club
2
Salad Days

I know Another One is classified as an EP, so IDK.


#5

Wikipedia are calling RARNC a mini LP… Whatever that means!

I’m counting this as his fourth anyway.


#6

Not so keen on My Old Man, but quite like This Old Dog


#7

Another new track:


#8

Mac played some new tracks in a live session for KCRW


#9

Been listening to this quite a lot in the run up to EOTR. I’m a fan…though does anybody else find it a bit back-loaded in terms of quality? Even more so considering tracks like My Old Man and This Old Dog were singles…but amongst the weakest songs. I think Still Beats For You, A Wolf Who Wears Sheep’s Clothes, On the Level and Moonlight on the River are the highlights.


#10

Has anyone seen him on this tour? I saw him in Vancouver last night and it was a total shitshow, bit worried about the guy.


#11

Quite liked the wooziness of Salad Days but couldn’t make it through this album.


#12

in what respect? they usually play quite sloppily but it usually just feels like tight musicianship and a laissez-faire attitude combining. then they pull out razor tight metallica covers or something
