==> Third studio album by the American singer-songwriter based in New York. "Much of “Lady Star” deals with a sense of feeling paralyzed by indecision: whether the world is full of beauty or disaster; whether hopefulness is necessary or naive; whether justice is better attained with clear ideas of “right” and “wrong,” or if the desire for a neat reality impedes progres." (Team Love Records) ==> Third full-length album by the Canadian, singer-songwriter, multi instumentalist, released on Captured Tracks . DeMarco recorded This Old Dog while moving to Los Angeles : "I demoed a full album, and as I was moving to the West Coast I thought I'd get to finishing it quick. But then I realized that moving to a new city and starting a new life takes time. And it was weird, because usually I just write, record, and put it out; no problem. But this time, I wrote them and they sat. When that happens, you really get to know the songs. It was a different vibe." (Wikipedia)
