MAC DEMARCO - Rock And Roll Night Club

With slack, smart-aleck moves that wouldn't be out of place on a playlist with Ariel Pink, Ween, Atlas Sound and White Fence, former Makeout Videotape member DeMarco's pitch-bent and breezy approach to home-fi solo swagger soothes as much as it unsettles.

"Rock And Roll Night Club is a confusing record, but not a mess. On the contrary, it's so deeply calculated that the intentions and possible motivations of its songs are likely to be lost on most. This would be a problem if the good songs weren't so incredible and strange." - Allmusic

"DeMarco is right at home with Captured Tracks, the Brooklyn imprint that specializes in signing artists who feel more comfortable reverting towards past sources, sometimes explicitly doing so by being knowingly ironic. But the cheeky nature of Rock And Roll Night Club inadvertently elevates its reputationfalling somewhere between classic pop and performance art, DeMarco’s talent for writing hooks should spurn any attempt to call it novelty." - No Ripcord
