Sparse and repetitive, though tender and altogether pretty, “Here Comes The Cowboy,” the first track off Mac Demarco’s album of the same name, ambles along, lulling the listener. The track’s sole lyrics, “Here comes the cowboy,” are repeated a dozen or so times, but viewers lose count when entranced by the song’s music video. Cole Kush directed and animated the absurdist visuals, wherein a misfit troop of strangely familiar figures send off—or sacrifice—a chair-bound creature of tie-dyed complexion. There’s certainly a story here, though you’re left to interpret, or survive it, yourself.
