DeMarco continues moving away from the dreamy sound that has come to define him. The influences of “This Old Dog” are heard clearly on his new release, with many of the songs featured much more honest instrumentation and stripped back songs compared to much of his earlier work. In fact, you could say that the approach of this album is almost too simple at times.
