Homeshake is the latest pseudonym and solo project of Edmonton-born, Montreal-based Peter Sagar. Having previously recorded with Mac DeMarco and Sheer Agony's Jackson MacIntosh, Homeshake returns with In the Shower, his debut release on Sinderlyn

Homeshake a.k.a Peter Sagar follows his 2014 debut with Midnight Snack, a distinctly R&B tinged collection of synthesizer jams. After leaving the Mac DeMarco touring band it’s clear that Sagar has had time to reflect and express some of his post-tour comedown anxieties in this record. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Sinderlyn.

Over his first three albums, Homeshake’s Peter Sagar followed his own idiosyncratic vision, a journey that’s taken him from sturdy guitar-based indie-pop to a bleary-eyed take on lo-fi R&B. Now, with Helium, Sagar is putting down roots in aesthetic territory all his own.

Homeshake's 2019 album Helium remixed by some of Peter's favourite artists, including Jessy Lanza, Laurel Halo, DJ Taye, DJ Paypal, Cecile Believe, Ciel, Project Pablo, and Foodman.

Under the Weather follows Sagar’s life and the depression that consumed him in 2019 — after a brief album intro, it jumps right into “Feel Better,” a reflection on attempting to buck up when the weather outside is grim. The album is hazy and moody, the pace slow as syrup, and from beginning to end, a fog falls over every synth and guitar line. In “Inaminit,” Sagar cancels plans when he’s feeling low; the closing track, “Tenterhooks,” sees Sagar’s deliverance into the depths of despair: “Feel myself drying up / feel myself turn into dust,” he sings over a funhouse mirror synth. “Oftentimes when you’re in a dark place, you’re supposed to journal and that helps release the pressure, Sagar says. “For me, it always found its way into the music.”
