Homeshake, the pseudonym and solo project of Edmonton-born, Montreal-based musician Peter Sagar, announces his sophomore effort ‘Midnight Snack’ due out September 2015 via Sinderlyn, the follow-up to his 2014 debut ‘In the Shower’. Lead track ‘Heat’ is available to stream below.
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 sets. 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.
