Canadian singer-guitarist Mac DeMarco recently invited Rolling Stone to hang out at the Brooklyn apartment where he recorded this year's excellently laid-back Salad Days. He made the album entirely on his own in a tiny bedroom (pictured) – often with his girlfriend sleeping in a loft bed above his head. "I record pretty quietly," DeMarco, 24, explains with an easy grin. "Usually, it’s either me doing a guitar track over and over or, like, singing very softly. She probably thought I was a fucking weirdo."
Read on for more candid snapshots from DeMarco's place.
