Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #30 'Rock and Roll Night Club' by Mac DeMarco

Arguably the oddest new arrival this year was eccentric Canadian Mac DeMarco.  This song preceded his second, better recived album, 2, but retains the shock of the new.  Sounding like a warped recording of Elvis, this has the kitsch of The Cramps, but a genuine sweetness, too.  Once heard, never forgotten.  Ten more songs to come later this week!
