Mac DeMarco Is the Calamity Cover King

Like many brown liquors, Mac DeMarco's rude tude and jangly guitar rock, which he dubs "jizz jazz", requires a certain palate. While some will slug back his raucous growls and obscenities with pure delight, others will have some trouble holding it all down. We had our first full-on Mac experience this year down at Hype Hotel, and we've since been intrigued by the extrovert's character and music.

To close his set last weekend at Pitchfork Music Fest, DeMarco assembled an outrageous, 10-minute medley of cover tunes. It opens with some jizzed-up lyrics to Bachman-Turner Overdrive's "Takin' Care Of Business", and moved into Lemmy-like renditions of The Police's "Message in a Bottle", Neil Young's "Unknown Legend", Limp Bizkit's "Break Stuff", and Metallica's "Enter Sandman". Listen below.
