Listen: Mac DeMarco’s new song “Brother”

on March 06, 2014, 10:40am

Mac DeMarco has unveiled “Brother”, the second single off his forthcoming album Salad Days. Similar to the dreamy “Passing Out Pieces”, DeMarco has veered into another slow jam, combining chirpy guitars, slow and steady drumming, and hazy harmonies into something akin to an Eagles ballad on copious amounts of acid. And, yes, we did tag this as “dream pop”; don’t worry, it’s totally blowing our minds, too.

Listen in below:

Salad Days is due out April 1st via Captured Tracks. For more, check out DeMarco’s recent session for Edmonton radio station CKUA and the short film for “Let My Baby Stay”.
