December 2015. Mac DeMarco is driving around the streets near his house by the water in Far Rockaway, Queens. The demos for This Old Dog are cranked on the stereo of his 1987 Volvo station wagon.
The engine’s rumbling as normal, but something doesn’t feel right. His gut says he should abandon the songs and his deadline. He does, and then spends the better part of 2016 on tour.
The next time he touches the demos, he’s inside the cramped confines of his latest home studio, in the guest bedroom of his new house on the edge of Echo Park, Los Angeles.
Every record so far’s been done somewhere fresh and this one’s no different. LA is the first place Mac’s chilled in a while that hasn’t been “really weird in some way”. He bought a fixer-upper, moved in around August and spent four months surrounded by builders, clutter and a set of songs he describes as “sad and strange.” “It was weird having the record sit in my stomach for so long. I was stressed or anxious a lot of the time. There’s an air of terror and uncertainty surrounding it,” he says. “Confusing is the best way to put it.”
