Homeshake is a Montreal-based indie pop project helmed by singer/songwriter Peter Sagar, and featuring contributions by Mark Goetz, Greg Napier, and Brad Loughead.
Homeshake's songs are stripped down and sensual, often inspired by smooth soul and R&B but with a lo-fi, home-recorded aesthetic. Sagar began recording and digitally releasing Homeshake songs in 2012, and Fixture Records
released his debut cassette, The Homeshake Tape, in early 2013. Sagar spent much of that year touring and playing guitar with Mac DeMarco
, as well as working on new material. A brief mixtape called Dynamic Meditation, which featured a ten-minute montage of new songs on the A-side and the entire montage played backwards on the B-side, was released in October of 2013 by Bad Actors Inc.
Homeshake's debut album, In the Shower, recorded at Montreal's Drones Club, appeared on Sinderlyn
in 2014. Sagar returned to the Drones Club to record Homeshake's second proper album, the more electronic Midnight Snack, which was released in 2015. Continuing in this direction, Fresh Air followed in 2017. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
