Ode to Viceroy – Mac DeMarco

By now you might be aware of Kurt Vile, Mac DeMarco and Ty Segall as the triumvirate sent to revive the sounds of garage rock’s past. DeMarco is the scrawny, gap-toothed river creature that crawled from the depths of Canada and seemingly slid his jangly melodies into indie folk rock. Lodged in a time warp, DeMarco is like a rambling man from a bygone era. A pinch of 60s Greenwich Village, softened with a side of California folk. Suffice to say, it’s been on heavy rotation.

And if DeMarco’s bedraggled looks divert you from his music, they shouldn’t. Ode to Viceroy is true hazed out, sunshine plastered on your face bliss. Turn this ditty up on a sunny day.
