Amoeba Review

08/05/2015

Mac DeMarco’s warbling guitar licks, laid-back vocals and goofy/sweet sensibilities return for a wonderful set of surprisingly classy tunes. His latest is a charmingly low-key release that demands little of its listeners and rewards them with instantly hummable little ditties that show DeMarco’s continued growth into a mature singer/songwriter (however immature his delightful persona continues to be). The overall mood here is a little more bummed-out and lovelorn than his previous releases, especially on the electric-piano-led, Beck-ish title track and “A Heart Like Hers,” in which DeMarco howls for lost love in a way we haven’t heard before. Yet these are gently crafted tunes that aren’t too much of a downer, a groovy little bassline in “No Other Heart” and jaunty march in “I’ve Been Waiting for Her” keeping things spry. Another One finds DeMarco doing the opposite of so many other artists: Rather than respond to his growing success with a bloated follow-up that aims high and misses, here, DeMarco scales back and tones down, settling peaceably into his sound —and into his new digs in Far Rockaway, to which he invites listeners at the end of the album, giving out his real address. Fans who do choose to stop on by for a cup of coffee, as he suggests, should let DeMarco know that he’s one of the best young songwriters alive.
