By now you've heard Mac DeMarco has a side band, one not named Makeout Videotape, called Walter TV with his bandmates Pierce McGarry and Joe McMurray, along with Simon Ankneman. If this is the first you've heard of Walter TV, we thank you for coming to us.
When Mac DeMarco is not giving Dent May the finger or releasing our favorite album of October or playing with his bandmates Christian parts, he plays along in Walter TV. On Appetite the band of merry Canadian pranksters do a bit of Strawberry Jammin', the bury a surfy freakout in eight tons of blown out shit tape, and utilize the same U-Vibe EFX that made “Planet Caravan” feel sung while snorkeling. Walter TV screetch out some Avey Tare-esque childhood wonder on “Nose Bleed” and “In My Room”, blista their fingers on “Necessity”, and drop acid in the red cups of Ivy League afrobeat on “Lo Noise”.
Walter TV's Appetite cassette is out now on AMDISCS.
