Is there anything as romantic as the idea of leaving the city to move across the country to a frozen prairie lake cabin and write a bunch of weirdo insular songs? That’s what what Aimée van Drimmelen and Kees Dekker did in 2010 when they left Montreal for the west coast. The result is The Backhomes. The Canadian duo released an album, Only Friend, and you can listen to their song “Going Home” below. Then get inspired to move into a cabin yourself until so many people do it that it drives up the cabin rents and then they open a cabin Starbucks nearby and that’s when you know it’s time to move.
