The 200 Best Albums of the 2010s
LOS ANGELES — Before Mac DeMarco bought a lovely blue home with a pool on a quiet hill here in Silver Lake — the first real adult spoils of a surprising career built on seeming like an affable deadbeat — he gave out his exact address to fans, not exactly expecting them to show up in droves. His place, a four-bedroom on the beach in Far Rockaway, Queens, was relatively secluded, directly across Jamaica Bay from Kennedy International Airport. DeMarco recalled recently as he chain-smoked Marlboro Reds in his new backyard, surrounded by overflowing ashtrays and discarded cans of beer and seltzer. I really liked it.
His style of music has been described as "blue wave"  and "slacker rock",   or, by DeMarco himself, "jizz jazz". For junior high, he went to McKernan School. Around this time he started playing guitar, with lessons from his grandmother. After graduating from Strathcona High School in Edmonton in , he became a backing musician. After that, he moved to Vancouver. Living in the Killarney neighbourhood, he released a self-produced album, Heat Wave , as a part of the indie rock project Makeout Videotape in The album sold out its unit run. Failing to find work as a musician, he participated in medical experiments for money  and worked on a road paving crew. The four-track-recorded album features skits and slowed-down vocals. Rock and Roll Night Club impressed his new label enough that they agreed to release a full-length follow-up album.
A few years ago I ended up in a wheelchair. But now it also comes out that he resents my past negativity and lack of appreciation for his hard work I didn't want to talk about my issues with him because, as many of you have said, my little problems couldn't compete with what he was dealing with at work. If you are willing to understand and accept these, whether or not you are a Mormon, you can have a fun time dating Mormon girls.
