Watch Mac DeMarco Unravel Weezer's 'Sweater Song'

A messy tribute to one of his favorite bands

Mac DeMarco isn't shy about his love of Weezer, so when presented with the opportunity to cover "Undone — the Sweater Song" for A.V. Club's weekly "Undercover" series, the Canadian singer-songwriter accepted. DeMarco tightens his trademark ramshackle guitar work but mumbles through the track's spoken-word interludes for a slapdash rendition. Yes, it's messy, and DeMarco admits the song is "probably easier" to learn than any other number on the "Undercover" master list, but just watch how red the 22-year-old's face gets near the end of the clip: He's laying it all bare.
