The Big List

Mac DeMarco, Naomi Punk, Calvin Love

When: Fri., March 8, 9 p.m. 2013

Canadian songwriter Mac DeMarco released several albums as Makeout Videotape before adopting his own name last year. His jazzy, off-kilter pop slackerdom suggests a debauched lounge singer channeling Jonathan Richman's wild-eyed innocence and Ariel Pink’s stony lo-fi pysch buzz. DeMarco’s half-lidded croon catalyzes the music's rough and understated charm, while his loose, carefree vibe recalls Beck, sidling along wherever the wry playfulness takes him, as on the yacht-rock paean "Freaking Out the Neighborhood."
