Mac DeMarco

Mac DeMarco recently released Salad Days, and in the last year or so has gained a large following. Pepperoni Playboy is a short documentary on the musician that gives you a look into his recording space, the process of making that new record, and lots of self-shot footage of him and his band goofing around. Most of all it lets you spend 30 minutes or so soaking in DeMarco’s funny personality and all around charisma. Watch the full Jon Leone directed “Macumentary” below.

  1. Real bummed they didn’t get enough into his pinball hobby.

    • What, slow motion grind humping and kung fu moves in front of The Stranger machine wasn’t enough?

      I thoroughly enjoyed the Macumentary. Opening with “Passing out Pieces” is a surefire way to grab my attention for half an hour.

  2. When I visited the cloud this weekend and listened to Salad Days for the millionth time, I had one of those isolated-instrument experiences and got lost in the bass lines on the record for a good 20 minutes…especially in “Blue Boy.” The dude can write a groove.

  3. Macs goofball hi-jinks and too many cigarettes make this such a wonderful video watch as I start my week. And I completely agree that “Passing Out Pieces” as well as the rest of the songs off of Salad Days in the video, plus the professional editing, make this just a treat for anyone who loves his music and persona. But its also cool to see the studio and how the record was made really wish I couldve shelled out the 60 bucks to see him at the Fonda in July :(
