Meredith Music Festival 23

Mac DeMarco

Mac’s a natural. Songwriter, singer, frontman, entertainer. He’s from Canada, and travels with a four-piece band of exquisite taste. It’s all musically relaxed but great fun. Summery pop. Feelgood. Nothing too arty. The world’s most well crafted modern pop with brilliant duelling guitar interplay as a sub-plot. Mac calls it “jizz jazz” in that wacked-Sinatra way of his. Top of the heap. A number 1. 7 albums since 2009. Well-conceived and constructed simple ideas, delivered with panache. Mac’s one suave slacker. New album shows a blindingly attractive maturity, as it should, after all he’s now 22. Sat arvo.
