12 Songs, 31 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

There are times that Mac DeMarco’s debut sounds less like an album of songs than an extended comedy sketch designed to make soft rock sound as sleazy and weird as possible. What spares Rock and Roll Night Club from amounting to a joke—warped radio-announcer interludes and all—is how beautifully DeMarco writes, from the plaintive, ‘50s-style heartbeat of “One More Tear to Cry” to the glam-inflected haze of “She’s All I Really Need.”
