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 to be yet another solid entry in his already extensive discography. The two discuss smoking cigarettes for the first time, snack on some popcorn, and drink beer together. Also, neither of them condone smoking, kids, even if they look cool and casual doing it. The best takeaway from this, though, is that Shamir has been a Mac DeMarco superfan since 2013. And he recalls when the two of them first met down to the detail — including that DeMarco dedicated a song to him. That’s amazing. We are lucky to be living in a time of such indie benevolence. Watch the whole conversation below.
UPDATE: Part two is now up as well, watch below.
