Mac Demarco is currently out with a new album called Here Comes The Cowboy, a 13 track collection of songs that do not fall to audiences expectations. At first listen there is confusion, uncertainty, and eventual skips to the end. However, this albums does have moments of shine and solitude, this work is definitely a personal and unapologetic view into Demarco’s diary and solitude. This album focuses on what Continue reading “Here Comes The Cowboy – Mac Demarco Album Review”
I thought it was pretty neat that Spotify did this for their listeners…
Well, it is coming to the end of the Year and I wanted to share with you my wrap up of the year 2017. Now, for a lot of people 2017 has been a shit year- and I can’t agree with you more. But some of it has been really great. I have special people in my life, and I have wonderful music to accompany me. This was the year that I decided to change my major and to do something that I love and that I know I want to improve in. It’s been a year full of music and emotional roller coaster, and what I’m thankful for was making it out in the end.
My top songs of 2017 are definitely me. Mac Demarco has been one of the biggest influences and highlight of my year. I can’t believe I had the chance to see him. I have to admit, it was one of the greatest most surreal moments of my life. Tyler the Creator has been a big hello for me. I remember it was nighttime in Japan and Tyler just released his newest album. I remember my boyfriend reminding me to listen to it. It was so beautiful and we both automatically had our favorites.
With this playlist below, some of the songs I did listen too. But I’m glad they gave me some new recommendations! Rex Orange County and Clario have been reoccurring artists for me and becoming some of my newest favorites.
Sometimes I feel like my mind is overloaded with music. But I think it’s great inspiration for me to write music and get started on projects and writing. I have so many ideas that are waiting to be released. I really should get to work on them!
I hope you guys had a good 2017. I know it must have been hard, but at least the music has been there for mine and your support. Music is love!
Damn. I can’t believe I completely forgot about this, but after all, it was the holidays. For my songs of the week, I’ve been going back to a lot of my favorites. This is what I got for you…
Passing Out Pieces by Mac Demarco
This has always been a favorite of mine, the words really mean a lot. The video is weird, but what isn’t weird anymore.
Flamming Hot Cheetos by Clario
She’s one of the inspirations for me to start making music.
Fucking Young by Tyler the Creator
I hope you enjoy these songs! You’ll be hearing from me soon.
Give it a listen, give music a chance.
ON OCTOBER 1 I attended a concert for one of my most favorite artists ever
What I forgot was that The Garden is touring with Mac Demarco’s group. I bought these tickets to ACL Live about maybe six months ago and what I only new what that The Flamming Lips was performing with a opening performance of Mac Demarco (which is who I really wanted to see, but I do like The Flamming Lips). Anyway, I had no idea that The Garden was going to perform. The week before the concert I kept getting emails reminding me to print my tickets before the concert. At the end of the email it had the line up which was:
The Garden 8:00
Mac Demarco 8:50
Flamming Lips 10:40
And I completely flipped out. My boyfriend told me not to get my hopes up. But why would they even put that in the email? Was my ticket finally fully worth what I was paying for. And what do you know…….The Garden came out and did an amazing set. Nothing could describe how happy I was to see them. Me and RJ where up in the balcony assigned seating in the first row so the view was perfect. The only problem was that no one in the balcony wanted to stand and jam out. Technically the population of the crowd was 80% in their forties with no idea who Mac Demarco or The Garden was. Me and RJ were itching so bad to stand up but we didn’t because we would block people behind us. Next time though, we will see Mac in the pit. Damn, I can’t even describe the feeling when I saw him, it was so surreal.
