McBriare Samuel Lanyon “Mac” DeMarco (born Vernor Winfield McBriare Smith IV, April 30, 1990) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He is best known for his solo career, during which he has released four studio albums, Rock and Roll Night Club (2012), 2 (2012), Salad Days (2014), and Another One (2015). His style of music has been creatively described as “blue wave”, “slacker rock”, or self-described by DeMarco as the non-sequitur “jizz jazz”.
On July 8, 2015, DeMarco released a 9 track instrumental album titled Some Other Ones and called it a “BBQ soundtrack”. Later that evening, he hosted a listening party in New York City (where DeMarco is currently based) for fans to hear Another One, where fans could get free hot dogs if they donated to a food bank. In an interview with Mr. Wavvy released on August 19, 2015, DeMarco suggested that he would release Makeout Videotape material on vinyl in the near future.
