Gold Coast's own independent label Strange Yonder (the folks behind such local favourites such as Salvadarlings, the Brian Emo and more) have today signed Montreal-based band Homeshake to their ever-increasing roster.
Homeshake is the pseudonym and solo project of Edmonton-born, Montreal-based musician Peter Sagar. As follow up to his 2014 debut "In the Shower", Homeshake will release his sophomore effort "Midnight Snack" this coming Spring via Strange Yonder in Australia.
Hear first single, 'Give It To Me' below.
"Midnight Snack" was recorded this past summer with Jackson MacIntosh at the Drones Club in Montreal. Musically this time around Sagar trades in his guitar for synthesizers and a drum machine, developing vocal arrangements from loops he created for his solo set.
He pulled influence from house pioneers like Chip E and Mr. Fingers as well as Japanese pop starlets like Chiemi Manabe, slowing down the tempo with his own homemade drowsiness. The resulting collection is an eclectic tangle of personal anecdotes steeped in an everlasting reverence of D’Angelo and R Kelly.
