Possibly the most charismatic live performer on the line-up (ever?) MAC DEMARCO (real name, Vernor Winfield McBriare Smith IV) has a penchant for cheeky lyrics and a gap-toothed smile. After a succession of playful, buzzy albums, Canada’s most charming wild child released his third record Salad Days, which took a more serious turn despite plenty of oddball jams. DeMarco’s self-labelled style of ‘jizz jazz’ is groovy and melodic, and his live show will be fun, lewd and possibly a little nude.
“Salad Days is no more or less than a great album in a tradition of no-big-deal great albums.” –Pitchfork (8.5 – Best New Music)
“His best record yet” – NME (9/10)
