Mac DeMarco "This Guy's In Love With You" (Herb Alpert cover)
Published Sep 12, 2014Mac DeMarco has a new guitar player in his band, as Andy White has replaced former axeman Peter Sagar (who now has a project of his own). To welcome White into the fold, DeMarco has released a music video for a cover of Herb Alpert's "This Guy's in Love with You" (written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David).
The cover channels DeMarco's usual warped style, since it's filled with woozy croons and watery guitar work. Meanwhile, we see White soaking in the sights of New York, as he gets kitted out in patriotic American gear and makes himself look silly with some extremely public exercises.
A description accompanying the video reads, "Introducing, our new guitar messiah: Andrew Charles White. In this clip, Andy discovers the sights, sounds and flavour of New York City. I peed my pants, I shit my pants, I am the donkey boy with the tiny penis. God Bless."
Is this a loving introduction or a frat-style hazing? Watch the video below and make up your own mind.
