|Mac DeMarco chronology|
2 is the debut full-length studio album by Canadian musician Mac DeMarco. It was recorded in June 2012, and released in October 2012 on the Captured Tracks label.
DeMarco moved from Vancouver to Montreal in 2011. There, he recorded an EP under his own name, Rock and Roll Nightclub. Featuring slowed-down vocals and elements of glam rock, this recording garnered enough attention that his label, Captured Tracks, agreed to finance a full-length album. DeMarco shifted his style from Rock and Roll Nightclub to 2, and his glam and crooning singing style were dropped for a more standard approach to guitar rock. The album was composed and recorded in DeMarco's Montreal apartment, in the Mile End neighbourhood. DeMarco made the recording wearing only his 'skivvies', or underwear. In a June 2012 interview, DeMarco announced that about 75% of the album had been completed.
The album contains a single acoustic track, 'Still Together', which is a re-recording of 'Together', written by DeMarco on 2009 to Makeout Videotape EP 'Bossa Yeye', also features DeMarco using falsetto singing in the chorus. The opener, 'Cooking Up Something Good', uses a song structure where a catchy verse transitions to a 'blindsiding' darker chorus. 'Robson Girl' also juxtaposes a 'sweet' verse with a guitar-shredding chorus.
Lyrically, DeMarco covers growing up in suburbia, failed love and family secrets, the last featuring heavily in 'Cooking Up Something Good'. 'Ode to Viceroy' is a tribute to the singer's favourite brand of cigarettes. DeMarco is apologizing to his mother in 'Freaking Out the Neighbourhood', and trying to convince a girl to leave town with him in 'The Stars Keep on Calling My Name'.Download brave mac.
In September 2014, DeMarco stated in a 'What's in My Bag?' interview video at Amoeba Records in San Francisco, California that he had been inspired by the album art for Haruomi Hosono's Hosono House for the design of 2’s album cover. In the same interview, DeMarco also points out his cover’s striking but coincidental similarity to Bruce Springsteen's The River.
