World Cafe Playlist for 04/03/2023

Mac DeMarco joins host Raina Douris

In January, Mac Demarco released his fifth studio album Five Easy Hot Dogs. It’s a departure for him musically: it’s all instrumental, no vocals, no lyrics. And it was written and recorded after he literally departed his home in L.A. on a road trip to New York, with a self-assigned mission to make a new album before he returned. Each song is named after a stop on that trip, and Mac maps it all out.
