Fond of droney psych-trips a-lá Moon Duo, Spacemen 3, Spiritualized and Indian Jewelry? If yes, read no further —-> move cursor directly towards the “Buy Now”-button.

Canadian psych/kraut-duo The Backhomes delivers repetative drum-machine grooves with swirling organs, electronic spice and possessed’n processed guitars through allsorts of tremolo, reverb, fuzz and flanger. The solid guitarworks in here range from walls of noise to poisonous hooks and nifty details. Flat out fantastic, this is a haunting hypnotic trip you do not wanna miss out on!

The awesome twosome consists of Kees Dekker (The Besnard Lakes) and Aimée van Drimmelen, and the magic is spawned and recorded in their own house in Victoria BC. “Tidalwave” is self-released in only 300 copies on Black Vinyl, and I advice you to jump on it before the word on these guys starts escalating.  Through the quality of their work, and the popularity of the genre these days, The Backhomes are bound to be picked up by an influental psych-label anytime soon.


And yes, this cover is going up on my wall..
