Pop Offerings: Mac DeMarco – On The Level

Pop Offerings: Mac DeMarco – “On The Level”. Now over a week old, this track is finally reaching Polishdownpour, feeling fresh, and yet as old and timeless as any well loved vinyl. The lazy slithering of the vocals is characteristic of DeMarco yet the soundscape is new. The chords, synths, tempo, virtually everything about this track gleefully harken back to any given track from seminal Air album Talkie Walkie, and with great effect. Similarly, the song never reaches an ultimate high or low, much like the inner-rumblings of the speakers mind.
