Homeshake, Sheer Agony, Video World

August 23, 2015 @ 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Homeshake is the pseudonym and solo project of Edmonton-born, Montreal-based musician Peter Sagar.

Midnight Snack was recorded this past winter 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.

Much of the record was written following Sagar’s dizzying time on the road as touring guitarist with Mac Demarco, reflecting on the loneliness that plagued him towards the end of his run and the longing for life back home in Montreal. Sagar left the band to focus on his own music and to rebuild the infrastructure of his life. While many of the new tracks meander through anxiety and melancholy, it is also a witness to a return to safety.

We’re super stoked to have Homeshake play Holland w/ Sheer Agony (Montreal power pop!) and our very own Video World (lo-fi bedroom pysch punk led by Nick Minor!). Gonna be a great show to end this summer month the right way.
