Before I left for L.A. last summer I got lunch with the homie @ibknight at King Noodle in Bushwick and saw them shooting this video.
Didn’t know it was JUNGLEPUSSY just thought it was some art students fucking around with their new cameras.
Ahh September! After an extended vacation from work and the island of NYC it was time to return to both.
I started a new show at the top of the month, a goofy scripted pilot for Oxygen, so I was on the hunt for new shit to listen to while I edited.
Above are my most played songs this month featuring the likes of Mac Demarco, Years & Years, Marlena Shaw, Little Dragon and more.
Because my job requires me to spend a lot of time by myself with headphones on, I listen to a shit ton of music. But even I sometimes get bored with my Itunes favorites and Spotify playlist.
He describes his music as “jizzy jazz”, others have described it as “blue wave” or “slacker rock” and certaintly there are songs that fit the latter descriptions. “Salad Days” comes to mind.
But I don’t think those descriptions do his sound justice.
"Chamber of Reflection" could be on the soundtrack to the opening of a blaxpolitation film.
And the acoustic version of “Only You” from last years Live & Acoustic Vol. 1 is as beautiful and haunting as it gets.
There are currently 3 Mac Demarco albums on Spotify and he’s been Pitchforks Best New Music twice so I’m pretty late to this obsession but better late than never.
Mac Demarco, I am currently obsessed.
