Song of the Week – On the Level

On the Level – Mac DeMarco

Indie hero Mac DeMarco is bit by bit releasing tracks from his forthcoming album This Old Dog due out on May 5th and so far, it’s all great stuff.

The three songs he’s pre-released from This Old Dog retain the zesty sound of his older work but have more depth. On the Level is the latest offering and it’s a compelling listen. It is is more intricate and layered than other hits of his. With shades of Tame Impala shining through, this groovy track has a hook which is hard to ignore and a base line which makes you want to move. It’s a mellow song but it still packs a lot of punch. Chuck it on loud and feel yourself moving and bopping.

On the Level is a song that makes you sit up and listen. Bring on May 5th for more of this!
