I just got word that Canadian psych/kraut-duo The Backhomes has found a box containing 12 copies of their long sold-out debut-album Only Friend from 2013!

As with their brilliant second-album “Tidalwave” released earlier this year, this is a must-have if you’re into droney psych-trips a-lá Moon Duo, Spacemen 3, Spiritualized and Indian Jewelry. Infectionus drum-machine grooves, swirling organs, electronic spice and guitars run through allsorts of tremolo, reverb, fuzz and flanger, 100% psychedelic ear-candy.

The Backhomes are Kees Dekker (The Besnard Lakes) and Aimée van Drimmelen, and they’re pretty high on my list of discoveries this year!  Be sure to grab this gem while you can!

Backhomes backcover

PS! There’s still a few copies of “Tidalwave” available, pressed on 300 copies only.. At 15$ (20 CAD) each and with resonable shipping I seriously recommend you grab both.
