Mac DeMarco has stopped by KEXP to perform a string of tracks from his most recent album Here Comes The Cowboy.
The public radio station in Seattle, Washington, has built up a huge audience over the years after specialising in alternative and indie rock music.
To coincide with the release of DeMarco’s new record, the station put on a Gathering Space as the indie singer arrived to perform some new material.
“I just use ‘cowboy’ as slang with friends,” DeMarco previously said of the record. “Like when you say: ‘Hey cowboy!’, but where I grew up cowboys were a thing. There was the [Calgary] Stampede, and people did cowboy activities, and there were themed-bars. For the most part, those zones were geared towards people that I didn’t really want to interface with. Jocks who wanted to call me a profanity and kick my ass. So for a long time it had a very negative connotation for me.”
