Mac DeMarco soundtracks a strange cat meme video

Cat DeMarco?

Mac DeMarco has shared a mysterious video of a cat eating its dinner, soundtracked by what appears to be new music.

DeMarco’s latest album ‘This Old Dog’ was released last May. Then, in December, he live-streamed 26 minutes of unheard material.

Now DeMarco has shared a strange four-minute clip of a cat named Pickles eating, soundtracked by some jazzy music. “Pickles lives behind the garage,” DeMarco explains of the video, which is succinctly titled ‘PICKLES’.


A press representative for DeMarco has told NME that the clip is “just a video of a cat, not new music”.

Watch the clip in full below.

Last month saw DeMarco’s band cover Radiohead classic ‘High and Dry’ at a live show, with DeMarco himself playing drums for the rendition.

DeMarco and co played at the Chile leg of Lollapalooza in March, with the singer switching places with drummer Joe McMurray to cover the track.

McMurray took on lead vocal duties, with his slacker-ish drawl sounding more like Parquet Courts, before diving into the crowd for a singalong with fans.


NME spoke to DeMarco last year, who gave his eight commandments for living a better life.

At one point, DeMarco explained: “I’m not a very healthy eater. I don’t react well to diary or gluten, but I don’t give a shit. I’m like, “Gimme the pizza!” Well – you reap what sow. I eat that stuff all the time and then I’m on the can for, like, three hours. Drinking copious amounts of alcohol for the better part of a tour, that’s not gonna help at the back. But it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Sometimes you poop your pants. But it’s not, like, a lot. It’s just a very unhealthy little shart, you know what I mean?”
