Librarian’s Choice

Mac DeMarco
One Wayne G [Self-Released]
Los Angeles/Canada/Edmonton        Rock/Pop
1 million demos from Mac DeMarco. Mostly instrumental miscellaneous recordings from 2018-2023. The ones that do have lyrics are good ones too. Obviously a 199 song album is obnoxious but it’s real good to chill out with. Some of them could be Animal Crossing songs.

Dublin, Ireland        Rock/Pop

Nabihah Iqbal
DREAMER [Ninja Tune]
London, UK        Rock/Pop/Electronic
