A Look Inside Musician Mac DeMarco's Los Angeles House
In August of 2016, the 26-year-old musician Mac DeMarco abandoned his digs way out on New York’s Rockaway Beach and set off for Los Angeles with his life in a U-Haul and his girlfriend, Kiera McNally, in the passenger seat. At the time, the songs that would become This Old Dog, his third full-length album, released this month, were mostly tape demos, in bits and pieces. “The thinking was something like, When I get to L.A., I’ll just make the record there," DeMarco said. "But obviously, moving across the country to a house which is completely disheveled and f---ed up takes more than a week to set up.” Now, the singer is comfortably ensconced in his Silver Lake home, where there’s a pool that looks like something out of a David Hockney painting. And DeMarco, who it's safe to say spends a mind-bending amount of his life playing on the road, is really enjoying the momentary spell of domesticity. Here, we take a look around his home, which is both a museum of the professionally irreverent prankster we all know, while also providing an affirmative answer to the question: Has Mac DeMarco really grown up?
