Mac DeMarco recently announced the release of a new mini-album, cheekily called Another One. Actually, “cheeky” might be the best way to describe DeMarco’s preferred mode of being, and “The Way You’d Love Her” continues nicely in this vein. No one is better at dragging an undercurrent of sardonic ribbing through the wide-eyed, moony ballad. His softly mumbled vocals are hypnotizing, drawing you into the romance — until he gives a little yelp and breaks the mood with a guitar solo. After all, it’s his fantasy; he can play it out however he wants. Listen.
Another One out 8/7 on Captured Tracks. Pre-order it here.
