What the fuck is 2 Wet Crew?
Doug Lussenhop, otherwise known as ‘DJ Douggpound’, is part of the deranged comedy duo Tim and Eric and has borrowed the services of Mac DeMarco who is always on hand to play his part in a bizarro-comedy online sketch or two.
Taking the lead in ‘River Crack’, DeMarco, who “lives for the crunch,” enters the furore donning a smouldering cigar as he crab walks into shot.
Fuck knows what else to write to try to explain, you’re just going to have to watch it:
Ramping up interest in his new record, DeMarco has recently returned to our ears with his singular sound with two new track and some more details on his new album, out on Captured Tracks on 5th May, This Old Dog
The new tracks however signal a departure for DeMarco from his usual sound. The physical move he made from Queens to L.A. is now permeating his work as the tracks below are more refined and softer. ‘This Old Dog’ and ‘My Old Man’ still have all the hallmarks of a DeMarco song but with the gleam of L.A. smushed across their face. A little too Jack Johnson? Maybe, but as Mac explains this is part of an evolution of the artist.
“The majority of this album is acoustic guitar, synthesizer, some drum machine, and one song is electric guitar,” he said.
“So this is a new thing for me. This is my acoustic album, but it’s not really an acoustic album at all. That’s just what it feels like, mostly. I’m Italian, so I guess this is an Italian rock record.”
