Like Lo-Fi Indie? Love HOMESHAKE's "Cash Is Money"

Mac DeMarco's guitarist Peter Sagar returns with a new tune featuring a deflating balloon.

Last time we heard from


—that's a dude called Peter Sagar who spends the majority of his time as Mac DeMarco's guitarist—was well over a year ago. Back then

we premiered the glitchy, VHS-y video for "Don't Try."

Back then he sounded a bit like a narcoleptic Stephen Malkmus.

His new tune, "Cash Is Money," is a bit more high def. Lifted from his forthcoming album, In The Shower (out 10/7 on Sinderlyn), HOMESHAKE combines feathery harmonies, nimble bass noodling, and a whole solo by a steadily deflating balloon. OK, that's probably not true. It's probably a synth manipulated to go haywire, but it's way more entertaining to think about a flabby red balloon having its moment in front of the mic.
