Parks N' Rec: Adieu

By Kerry Doole

Parks N’ Rec - Adieu (Independent): Toronto-based singer/songwriter/producer Marco DiFelice first made a mark as frontman for alt-rockers Supergarage. That band released three albums from 1995 to 2007, prior to packing it in. DiFelice then moved into the field of music supervision (Orphan Black, Lost Girl) and production. On top of running his own music studio out of Toronto, he released a solo EP, The Sun that Somewhat Sets, under the moniker Marco Solo in 2007.


He is now re-entering the spotlight with Parks N’ Rec, a project in which he is currently collaborating with producers at Self Titled Studios to write songs against the backdrop of his own life.

An EP, Wish I Was Here, is set for release on July 7, preceded by the single Adieu. It shows DiFelice is working in significantly different musical terrain now. The track is dreamy pop, featuring airy and melodic vocals set to minimal beats with a tinge of reggaeton. The fact that he has spent a lot of time living in Central America may have had an effect there. The tune is mellow, with a summery vibe, though contrasting dark lyrics reference fires, car crashes, and nightmares.

In a press release, he explains: "It’s going to be a personal album, and hopefully I will capture the essence of every song in this process of ‘working backwards.'” We are keen to hear more.

Yes, Lana Del Rey’s Headlining Coachella Set Was Perplexing — And Profound

The iconic artist's night one headlining set included a guest appearance from Billie Eilish, a hologram of herself and so much more.

Not only did Lana Del Rey start her Coachella headlining set early, but her entry was epic.

On Friday, April 12, at 11:16 p.m. the festival main stage screens showed an aerial view of Del Rey and her entourage rapidly approaching. As she neared, it became clear her crew was not rolling up on the expected golf carts that often shuttle stars around the Indio, Calif. fest, but rather motorcycles. And as a snippet of her never-to-be-officially-released song “Jealous Girl” played – with the lyric “Baby, I’m a gangster too” on loop – Del Rey’s motorcade took a lap through the crowd as she smiled and waved to the thousands of fans gathered for this very moment.
