Mac DeMarco is gearing up for the release of his new album Salad Days, his first since his 2012 breakthrough 2. The first single from Salad Days, “Passing Out Pieces” recently surfaced, and it is a refreshing slice of lo-fi, 60s-indebted indie pop that demonstrates DeMarco’s best qualities as a songwriter. “Pieces” has a lot of charm to it, and it’s slightly off-kilter construction raises the song to another echelon entirely.
Salad Days is set for release on April Fools Day through Captured Tracks. Pre-order now (via iTunes) and get a copy of “Passing Out Pieces” immediately.
