Mac DeMarco "Brother"

Mac DeMarco "Brother"
Indie rock jester Mac DeMarco is about to let loose his new album Salad Days on April Fools' Day, but his new single "Brother" is decidedly straightfaced.

The gentle slow jam pairs a bouncy rhythm section with some plucky guitar work. On top, DeMarco offers life advice, telling his brother to avoid a nine-to-five job if he can and to take it slow. Ultimately, the song demonstrates a maturity in DeMarco that has been in hidden in the background throughout his discography.

Check out "Brother" below. Salad Days arrives April 1 through Captured Tracks.
