Mac DeMarco, “Salad Days”


At the end of Act I of Antony and Cleopatra, the Egyptian queen speaks fondly about her wild youth: “My salad days, when I was green in judgment: cold in blood…” While Mac DeMarco’s third full-length album under his own name sonically harks back to Cleopatra’s alluring and warm longing for the past, his lyrics suggest that the Canadian whiz kid has learned from his own childhood heyday and is now trying to spread his wisdom instead of diving into nostalgia. It’s a good look for him and an excellent return of the Mac.
