Preoccupations/Mac DeMarco (UPDATED)


(Note: This post was originally included Preoccupations former band name. We're pleased to make the correction. For more information, read this open letter to the band by Jon McCurley from before they changed their name.)

(Note: We were made aware of this disturbing story about Mac DeMarco after our interview. We've taken the episode down and won't be having DeMarco on our show again. CITY SLANG believes music scenes should be safe spaces for everyone, and we have zero tolerance for harassment or assault.)
