Track: "Suki and Me"
From: Time EP
Label: Captured Tracks
Released: March 26, 2013
Alex Calder used to do time in a Canadian combo called Makeout Videotape, who were fronted by 2012 breakout bro Mac DeMarco. Now Calder's rollin' solo, and DeMarco will serve as a constant —and fairly accurate— point-of-reference.
"Suki and Me" is big on ringing, reverb-slathered guitar lines and a claggy, cassette-taped sound; comparable not just to DeMarco, but Ariel Pink and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, too. All this wobbly charm and washed-out winsomeness marks the first taste from Calder's first EP, Time, and Calder's essential introduction to the world.
