Stereogum premieres Hand Habits song of the summer "Spell Song"

“... “Spell Song” mimics a lazy river with refreshing, wholesome acoustic guitar and lackadaisical guitar slides topped off by Meg Duffy’s light and unhurried vocals…”

Paste Magazine reviews King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizards' "Murder of the Universe"

“Obvious comparisons can be made to any number of hard rock heroes from decades past: Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Iron Maiden and other outfits that built their brand based on sinister intent and sonic excess. Yet even those aforementioned bands sound like weary shoegazers in comparison, given the agitation, fury and frenzy that’s well served by King Gizzard’s urgency and intensity.”

Chicago Reader

Meatbodies adds hard rock to LA garage

“On the new record, though, the overdriven guitar mayhem is leavened by infectious, driving acoustic strumming, swooshing electronics, and nimbler, more varied grooves that allow Kevin Boog’s slaloming bass lines to strut their stuff. Ubovich channels a heavy Marc Bolan vibe throughout, emphasizing the nasality of his falsetto and complementing it with lots of wordless harmony vocals.”

Here’s Why Mac DeMarco Headlining Radio City Music Hall Is a Big Deal

Somewhat surprisingly, Mac DeMarco is going to perform at New York institution Radio City Music Hall on September 22, and tickets will be available on Friday. It’s the kind of venue that many artists dream about one day playing, and DeMarco, despite his immense popularity, is a somewhat unexpected booking. So how’d he get here?

Mac DeMarco in Top 10 of 2017 Albums

“The content comes with a slight change in sound: Gone is the rinky-dink, pealing electric guitar tone that colored his early records, replaced with an acoustic instrument, recorded as if he’s in the room with you. There’s also prolific use of a CR-78 drum machine set to cruise, the steady motorik rhythms pushing him toward a more reflective space. He sounds comfortable, lived-in.”

The Reprise interviews Alex Cameron on upcoming Primavera Sound show

“...After making an appearance at last year’s Primavera Club shows in October, wild song panther, Alex Cameron, and his right hand man, saxophonist and business partner, Roy Molloy, will be making their first full Primavera Sound festival debut this Saturday at the stunning Auditori Rockdelux…”

The Guardian

The Guardian gives Mac DeMarco's London performance 5 stars

“...and the crowd embrace DeMarco’s ramshackle corniness, waving actual lighters along to the Careless Whisper-ish One More Love Song and going wild to Freaking Out the Neighborhood in a way that no crowd has gone wild to a song sounding like Dire Straits’ Sultans of Swing since 1987…”

Mac DeMarco talks about new record, "This Old Dog" on NPR's World Cafe

“...Mac DeMarco is just turning 27, but his new album, This Old Dog, seems to represent a more mature persona than he’s projected in the past…”

GQ

GQ interviews Mac DeMarco about new record "This Old Dog" & growing up (sort of)

“...His latest album, This Old Dog, is spare and soft and personal, and it’s open about his rocky relationship with his largely absentee father. He’ll tell you the LP was a creative risk, but one he felt comfortable taking if only because his fan base is along for the ride…”

The New Yorker

Mac Demarco talks to The New Yorker about James Taylor

“...they confirm that a truly great song exists outside of time and trend. But parallels between DeMarco and Taylor extend beyond their sound: they’ve both been known as boyish wild men who are fond of the bottle, and whose unpredictable, spastic personalities are at odds with the mellow, emotive songs they write.”

MTV

MTV talks to Mac DeMarco about all things "This Old Dog"

“...Because Mac DeMarco, or at least the legendary version of him that exists in his fans’ minds, transcends both time and space…”

Billboard

Billboard discusses Mac Demarco's new album, "This Old Dog"

“Due to the universal relatability of “being alive,” This Old Dog tells a simple, though spellbinding, story of some of life’s guarantees: family (in all its various forms), home, love and impending death.”

Stereogum

Stereogum reviews Mac Demarco's new album, "This Old Dog"

“...both in terms of sound and subject matter, the album finds DeMarco beginning to venture beyond the music he built his carefree indie bro reputation on. And it may be an antidote for his goofball exploits if, like me, you often find that stuff obscuring his formidable songwriting talent.”

Paste Magazine

Mac Demarco's "This Old Dog" reviewed by Paste Magazine

“As an anti-star who, at his heart, would likely be happy playing in a Midwest basement for beer money, DeMarco possesses innately strong songwriting abilities, endearing him to bedroom lo-fi purists and besandled Parrotheads alike.”

“For someone who appears to be professionally irreverent, he [Mac] is painfully self-aware of his precise coordinates along this generally strange journey.”

“...yet amid the partying, the lewd behaviour, the wonky and sometimes raunchy sense of humour, Mac DeMarco’s image has kind of gotten away from him.”

NY Times proclaims Mac Demarco as the Laid Back Prince of Indie Rock

“As a kind of pied piper for the blog crowd, Mr. DeMarco, with his trademark gaptoothed smile and disarming baby blues….but on-the-ground, grass-roots outreach via nonstop touring and direct human connection.”
