After much anticipation, NYC-based Porches, the synth-pop project of Aaron Maine has recently announced that January 2018 will mark the arrival of a new LP. The record titled The House, comes on the heels of 2016’s Pool and was the result of an 18-month stretch of intermittent recording. Says Maine, "The House is a diary. The House ...

Before Belle and Sebastian take on the Mann Center tomorrow for an uber lineup consisting of them, Andrew Bird and Porches, they’ve shared a new track for us. Though called “We Were Beautiful,” I cornily advocate for a title change to present tense because this track is a downright lovely piece of indie pop.
Right from the get-go, “We Were Beautiful” lifts off at full force — racing atop a muted hyper-drive foundation of sounds. Gradually adding in front man Stuart Murdoch’s hushed vocals, the song fuses into a mix of speeds and ...

Aaron Maine’s NY-based synth-pop project, Porches, recently remixed the surreal tune, providing a clarified, breezy companion
Stripping away layers of vocal processing, Porches’ remix of the song summons the deeper and tad demonic Alex G monotone that we all know and love, while spicing it ...
“Attempting to look at the bright side of a year that I am grateful is ending, 2016 has been a very forward year for electronic music,” Says The Range’s James Hinton. “For the first time in a while I think you can argue that there is no major genre collusion and that has led to some new and interesting risks being taken which feels fresh and exciting to me.”
Tonight’s ‘Landlady Holiday Spectacular’ also features Chrome Sparks, Lady Lamb The Beekeeper, Steve (of Delicate Steve), The Westerlies, Ex Reyes, Jeff Curtin & His Magic Theremin, Joanna Sternberg, and Uncivilized all playing, along with Landlady and something called “Crooklyn Rockers: A Very Natty Christmas.”

Porches aka Aaron Maine released his second studio album Pool in February through Domino Records. The album was recorded in his bedroom in New York. He will be performing a set at Made in America over Labor Day weekend in Philly and we got a few questions answered prior to his performance.
