Jul 4, 2014Mac DeMarco's Salad Days is a refreshing, off-kilter and highly-enjoyable album that provides great lyrics and vocals along with quirky and well-produced tunes. Even though personally I enjoyed "2" more, this album is still a fun and stellar record. Fans of DeMarco will surely love this new album.… Expand
Apr 1, 2014Mac DeMarco is a master at making each instrument work together as one, flowing in perfect harmony. His music truly captivates you, making it so easy to get lost in and just enjoy. He seems very wise for a man only 23 years old, writing songs that are so deep and beautiful but so friendly at the same time, so much so that I feel like Mac is an old friend of mine even though I've never met him. For me, Salad Days is album of the year for 2014 so far. The album feels timeless. Mac DeMarco is definitely a man to watch.… Expand
Apr 3, 2014This is some of the best music to be released in 2014 so far. And the lyrics are just as beautiful. Perhaps my only complaint is that it doesn't have a track like "My Kind of Woman", my favorite track from his previous album.
That's not saying that this doesn't have remarkable songs. It does. Ones like "Let My Baby Stay", "Passing Out Pieces", and "Chamber of Reflection" are quite great, and i'll probably still be hearing them (and the whole album) for quite some time.… Expand
Apr 11, 2014I never heard about Marc DeMarco before this album, but i wish i knew him earlier.
Salad days is a nice album, you can listen too if you just want to kick back and relax, or if you want to listen to music with pretty deep lyrics.
Even though i am not too 'Pop' this album is a lot more than that.
This is definitely one of the better albums i heard this year. And i discovered a great new artist!… Expand
Apr 7, 2014Really though, Mac does a killer job at making hauntingly beautiful pop songs. He continues to improve and expand his sound. His influences are proudly worn on his sleeve, and it's quite obvious who they are at times; legends like Lou Reed and Bob Dylan to name a few easy picks. But nonetheless, it's his way of bringing all of these ideas to the present, and then pushing them towards the future. His guitar sometimes sounds like its on it's last run, fairly out of tune, and I dig it so much. So wrong, yet so perfect for him and the aesthetics he reaches for. Salad Days comes and goes pretty quickly at first listen, because each track does a great job at complimenting the ones before, and after it. This album not only stakes a strong claim for Mac's best record to date, but also a spot for best record of this year, so far. I think it might be fair to say that indie-rock's newest champion will be here for the long-run. By the look of his progression as a songwriter, he'll end up being one of the more acclaimed artists of this generation. And I sure as hell won't have any reason to disagree. REALLY.… Expand
