On April 1, Mac DeMarco will release Salad Days, his third album and follow-up to 2012’s excellent 2, via Captured Tracks. What we’ve heard of the album, including “Brother,” sounds incredible, and now you can join the listening party as well. This week, NPR is hosting a stream of the entire album via its First Listen feature. So queue it up and feel the breezy, shimmering sounds wash over you.
