Amoeba Review

Billy Gil, Hollywood 12/17/2012

Lo-fi goofball Mac DeMarco made two great records in 2012, first with the beguiling Rock and Roll Night Club, then with this second, more mature follow-up. He sheds some of the jokeiness and cassette-hiss that made Night Club immediately appealing but drew a fair share of comparison to Ariel Pink on 2 and instead focuses on songcraft. The surprise is that Mac and his cohorts are a great guitar band, streaming cloudy melancholy over beautiful guitar lines on “Dreaming,” coming on like a Canadian Aztec Camera on “Freaking Out the Neighborhood” and pulling out the stops for a dramatic, dandified acoustic closer, “Still Together.” While plenty shambolic, 2 doesn’t need to stamp its feet to make you feel its impact.

Montreal bandleader Mac DeMarco released his debut record Rock and Roll Night Club earlier this year to enthusiasm from many a lo-fi pop fan (including myself), so it’s remarkable that in such a short time the young DeMarco has pulled together another release that builds on Rock and Roll Night Club by upping the songwriting — check out his croony “My Kind of Woman” for song of the best vintage rock ’n’ roll balladry around — while relying less on the lo-fi waves that sailed his previous release. While DeMarco’s trademark goofiness is still intact, there’s nothing jokey about 2, in which DeMarco rocks circles around his peers with proven songwriting chops.
