Young Canadian MAC DEMARCO has the internet all jazzed about his sophomore release 2, out via Captured Tracks in October 2012, and as stoked as we were to host him way back in August, we're cheesin' hard to see him hit our stage once again. With his debut Rock and Roll Night Club 12” out in the spring of 2012, DEMARCO put on a glammy, cheeky façade to accompany his warm, infectious, guitar-hook laden tracks, filtering a lo-fi pop aesthetic through an eerie wash of glam. Of the tracks that have leaked from the upcoming LP, the FADER praises his “range of sometimes bubbly, but mostly drifting pop songs about love and life,” and Stereogum has stated that he plays like “the sort of thing a 15-year-old LOU REED might’ve made if he’d had access to GarageBand and Tumblr." NAOMI PUNK hail from Seattle, and boy howdy, they take the city's grimy, grungy past and shoot it right into the vein of their weird-ass "one part metal, two parts punk, one part psychedelic" cocktail. Sexified electro-garage-punk CALVIN LOVE kicks things off.
