The Dude Abides: At Home With Mac DeMarco

Up until now, it’s primarily been a merciful and mild summer in New York City. This day, though, possesses the kind of vicious sun that makes you feel like you’ve put yourself in some vague danger by being outside for more than 10 minutes, coupled with the kind of humidity that thickens beyond stifling and… More »

Mac DeMarco – “No Other Heart”

The more songs Mac DeMarco releases off his upcoming mini-album Another One, the more clear it becomes that this is one moony set of songs. DeMarco is in fine lover-boy form on his latest, “No Other Heart,” channeling the same lovesick sentiments as “I’ve Been Waiting For Her” and “The Way You’d Love Her.” If… More »

Mac DeMarco – “I’ve Been Waiting For Her”

Mac DeMarco’s mini-album Another One will be out in just a few weeks, and today he’s shared another track called “I’ve Been Waiting For Her.” In keeping with most of what we’ve heard so far, it’s an understated love song that quickly spirals off into a scratchy, fuzzed-out riff. Between his warbled vocals and the… More »

Ducktails – “Surreal Exposure” Video (Feat. Mac DeMarco)

Yesterday we saw a preview of Ducktails’ “Surreal Exposure” video, which features project mastermind Matthew Mondanile goofing around with goofing expert Mac DeMarco. Now, less than 24 hours later, director Richard Law’s final cut is upon us. The extremely loose concept is that Mondanile shows up at DeMarco’s house to hang out, at which point… More »

Preview Ducktails’ “Surreal Exposure” Video Starring Mac DeMarco

Real Estate guitarist Matt Mondanile is set to release his fifth solo LP as Ducktails in a few weeks. We’ve already heard a couple of very good and reliably chilled-out songs from the upcoming St. Catherine, “Headbanging In The Mirror” and “Surreal Exposure,” and it looks like the latter will be getting a new video… More »

Watch Mac DeMarco And Shamir Play Jenga

Mac DeMarco and Shamir are both on fire right now, which is why it makes perfect sense that Complex enlisted both of them to play a casual game of Jenga and chat. Shamir’s debut album Ratchet is unequivocally one of the year’s best, and DeMarco’s new mini-album, aptly titled Another One, sounds like it’s going… More »

Watch Mac DeMarco Visit The Dead Sea

Mac DeMarco communicates through the medium of hijinks just as often as he communicates through the medium of music. Sometimes, the two overlap. But in a new video that he just posted, DeMarco is straight-up in hijinks mode. DeMarco and his band recently visited Israel on tour. And while they were there, they made a… More »

7 Memorable Sets From Bonnaroo 2015 Thursday & Friday

By its early reputation and the sheer nature of it, Bonnaroo should be a complete mess. But the staff are universally nice and the people who attend are typically good all-around, too. It’s a sprawling, often muddy festival that can be overwhelming for its wealth of choices, but it’s so well-run and so laid-back that… More »

The 6 Best Moments Of Primavera Sound 2015 Saturday

I’d been told Primavera was one of the best festivals in Europe, and as the final day started up I definitely believed the hype. It’s just an all around mesmerizing setting, crowd, and lineup.

Mac DeMarco – “The Way You’d Love Her”

Mac DeMarco recently announced the release of a new mini-album, cheekily called Another One. Actually, “cheeky” might be the best way to describe DeMarco’s preferred mode of being, and “The Way You’d Love Her” continues nicely in this vein. No one is better at dragging an undercurrent of sardonic ribbing through the wide-eyed, moony ballad. More »

Watch Mac DeMarco Breeze Through “Let Her Go” On Conan

Mac DeMarco brought his goofy antics and trademark toothy grin to last night’s episode of Conan. He performed a high-energy rendition of his breezy Salad Days track “Let Her Go.” It also looks like the singer stumbled across a giant O’Brien head backstage, and was rightfully confused judging by the look on his face i… More »
