Published Jul 23, 2013Lovably sleazy lo-fi tunesmith Mac DeMarco recently wrapped up a batch of summer tour dates. In case you couldn't make it out to any of the gigs, a new cassette release capturing his performance at Bloomington, IN's Russian Recording has just been delivered under the amazingly accurate title Live at Russian Recording.
The 13-song live set features spirited run-throughs of nocturnal originals like "Rock and Roll Night Club" and jazz-chord spiked jangler "The Stars Keep Calling My Name." It also features a sloppy piss-take on Eric Clapton's "Cocaine," complete with DeMarco's weird, onstage "Beetlejuice" baritone and fudged chord changes. There's also the band's half-endearing, half-grating medley finale that butchers the Beatles, Metallica, Neil Young and more.
Jurassic Pop is selling a 200-piece limited tape run, but you can also pick up the live album on Bandcamp.
