    Late to the party as usual, I had heard the name but never the music. I just saw Mac DeMarco for the first time on The Tonight Show, I really dug it! I've been listening to some of his songs and am inspired by the music. I love discovering new music, even if I didn't get on board from the get go. If you have been on another planet and never heard him check it out. Groovy! If you know of bands with a similar style/groove I'd love to hear about them, chances are I've never heard it. Rock On \,,/

    I just got into him last week! I bought his latest album. I don't really get into many "new" artists these days. I buy music every week, but I'm still buying stuff from the 60s/70s/80s there's not too much current that interests me but I really like what I've heard so far.

    Bands with a similar vibe? That's a tricky one! I can hear quite a few influences in there. There's folky elements, there's modern r&b type sounds, maybe a hip-hop approach, a lo-fi DIY type sound.

    Have you ever heard of a little known Scottish band called The Beta Band? Check them out. Try a compilation album called The Three EPs. I was scratching my head trying to think of a similar band and although I haven't listened to them in a long time, they just popped into my head. Just search for the Beta Band on You Tube and tell me what you think because I'm curious now! :D They're obviously not identical, but have some things in common I think. Both are pretty original. I'm off to listen to them myself to refresh my memory, see if I'm right!

    Rad I like this a lot! Lots of similarities. I could rock this mellow vibe all summer. Thanks for the recommendation, off to check out some more tunes...
