2 is the debut full-length studio album by Canadian musician Mac DeMarco. It was recorded in June and released in October 2012 on the Captured Tracks label.

The album contains a single acoustic track, “Still Together”, which features DeMarco using falsetto singing in the chorus. The opener, “Cooking Up Something Good”, uses a song structure where a catchy verse transitions to a “blindsiding” darker chorus. “Robson Girl” also juxtaposes a “sweet” verse with a guitar-shredding chorus.

Lyrically, DeMarco covers growing up in suburbia, failed love and family secrets, the last featuring heavily in “Cooking Up Something Good”. “Ode to Viceroy” is a tribute to the singer’s favourite brand of cigarettes. DeMarco is apologizing to his mother in “Freaking Out the Neighbourhood”, and trying to convince a girl to leave town with him in “The Stars Keep on Calling My Name”.
