Homeshake releases the single/video, “Basement,” the track is lifted from his forthcoming album, CD Wallet, out March 8th via SHHOAMKEE, along with the news, the artist has announced a North America tour this fall. “Basement,” according to Peter, is an homage to the idea of the home basement, both as a place to hang out along with being the starting point for every band Peter has played in since he was a teenager. The video for “Basement” was shot by Jim Larson (who also directed the video for lead single “CD Wallet”) and features kaleidoscope-like images of Peter playing instruments in the basement among all the common artifacts you might find there. It’s a place of refuge and comfort and the fount of creativity for Peter.

Written and recorded over a majority of 2023 at Peter’s home studio in Toronto, CD Wallet takes place in his hometown of Edmonton, and touches on memories of growing up and the feeling of returning years later. Peter explains how the album was “made in a heavy, straightforward indie rock style to impress my childhood self” and addresses feelings of nostalgia and the trappings one finds themselves in when reflecting on years past.

CD Wallet also emphasizes Peter’s early fascination with guitar music: “Wake up, grandma why don’t you put on a little makeup,” or so he thought the lyrics went to “Chop Suey!” by System of a Down. Peter was flabbergasted; he sat, mouth open, with a copy of Guitar World magazine open to the tablature of “Chop Suey!” Reading the fine print with a magnifying glass completely stunned, knocked flat onto his back, he learned a guitar can be tuned much lower than he had expected! Drop C in fact. A tuning he uses to this day.
