Mamma's in the kitchen cooking up something good! 2, Canadian singer-songwriter Mac Demarco's debut full length, helped to put the deft lyricist and guitar player on the indie rock map. After the sleazy glam rock charade of his 2012 EP, Rock and Roll Night Club, Demarco dug deeper in the heavy and mundane moments in life. He crafts worlds, delivering stories and worldly observations in his trademark laconic voice. The songs themselves draw you in with their easy instrumental vamps and just catchy enough melodies. This is the Mac Demarco that everyone first fell in love with. Songs like "My Kind Of Woman," "Freaking Out The Neighborhood," and his ode to his favorite cigarettes, "Ode To Viceroy," are still fan favorites today. With cover art inspired by Haruomi Hosono's Hosono House (with a little of The Boss' The River), Mac Demarco had a surefire winner. Eleven tracks in all. Released by Captured Tracks on black vinyl housed in a full color sleeve with a fold out poster and a digital download.
