Apr 11, 2017

The King of Shab, Mac DeMarco threw out the third tease from his forthcoming album This Old Dog today, out May 5th via Captured Tracks. "On the Level" is a minimalist synth glider and by the sound of things so far, thie new album will be right on time for springtime outings and backyard lounging. Check it out below.

"Following the more acoustic-minded “This Old Dog” and “My Old Man,” Mac “revels in the high-gloss synth-pop of ‘On The Level’ (Uncut) showing once again that he’s at his best with the slower jams. It’s another contemplative number giving a further glimpse into his relationships with his kin. “This record has a lot to do with my family and my life right now and the way I’m feeling,” he says. “One of the main goals for this record was trying to make sure I retained some kind of realness. That’s the bottom line.”
