Revisited: Mac DeMarco Talks with Dayglow on the Talkhouse Podcast

They talk about the changing music industry, life as a musician in the time of COVID, and what “DIY” and “indie” mean in 2020.

This week, we revisit a chat from last year, featuring Mac DeMarco and Dayglow’s Sloan Struble. The second Dayglow album, Harmony House, comes out May 21. Check it out!

On this week’s show, a young gun picks a veteran’s brain. A youngish veteran, admittedly — Mac DeMarco’s only 30, but compared to 21 year old Spotify-wunderkind Sloan Struble, aka Dayglow, he’s already spent a lifetime in the music industry trenches.

The two take in a lot in this conversation. We hear Mac’s origin story, and get a nice overview of his career. We get insight into what it’s like finding fast fame online in 2020, and the two dissect the term “DIY” and the changing definition of “indie.”
