You’re there and I’m feeling blue

I am the Great Cornholio!
Here’s the bad news: Vancouver fuzz pop duo Makeout Videotape is planning to move to Montreal soon. Here’s the good news: the band just released a slew of tracks for free online. The collection is called Ying Yang, and you can get six of the songs from Bandcamp. There’s also a thirteen-track version floating around; go to Exclaim! to read my interview with singer Mac DeMarco and learn about how to get the whole thing.

Here’s my favourite track of the bunch, “Island Groovies.” It’s a cheery fuzz rocker, with a chugging baseline that provides a steady backdrop for DeMarco’s beautifully spiky guitar line. It’s a good job that the song is called “Island Groovies,” or else I might think that he was singing “I like movies.” Or maybe even “I like boobies.”
