Porches

Shirt

    Part angsty fantasy, part confessional melodrama, Shirt – the sixth studio album from Porches – is a rock album that oscillates between reality and make-believe to reflect both the innocence of suburban youth and the frayed reality of adulthood. A fusion of chaotic impulses, insatiable desires, and a perpetual yearning, Shirt plays with the tension between one's person and persona – the weight of your dreams crashing up against your reality. The result is something both familiar and uncanny, an anthemic tribute to this intrinsic duality built on crashing and caressing sounds.

    Following in the sonic footsteps of 2022’s All Day Gentle Hold !, Shirt is instantly recognizable as Porches' heaviest album to date. Grungy guitars that shine with a menacing glint, drums and bass that punch you warmly in the stomach, interspersed with moments of eerie calmness to create a physical sense of tension and release that resonates with each track.

    “All my life, all I've known, all it was was rock n roll. It was never meant to last and I think it's time to go, I pray to God the music takes me home.”

    All Day Gentle Hold !

      The new Porches record, ‘All Day Gentle Hold !’, via Domino, is a celebratory collection of songs. It’s charged up and chaotic, and described by the artist Aaron Maine as “the most energetic, off-thecuff moments, collaged together into the most captivating songs [he] could make.”

      ‘All Day Gentle Hold !’ was meant to be released as a short, punchy collection of songs that embraced Maine’s rock roots with live drums, two guitars, a keyboard, and a drum machine. As he fully embraced the guitar as his main instrument and returned to a minimal band arrangement, Maine found a new way of working, one that pared down the maximalism of previous album ‘Ricky Music’ to a more focused sonic palette.

      After years of experimentation, this record was an effort to create the music Maine makes most naturally, not through the lens of a producer, but as a songwriter and performer reaching out to an audience he could no longer see or feel.

      Porches

      Ricky Music

        Porches, a.k.a. Aaron Maine, is back with a new album, Ricky Music. With contributions from Mitski, Zsela, and Dev Hynes, and with co-production by Jacob Portrait, Ricky Music expands on the Porches discography (The House, 2018; Pool, 2016; Slow Dance In The Cosmos, 2013) by delivering 11 emotionally open, cracked-glass pop songs.

        About the album, Maine says: “My new album, Ricky Music, was written and recorded between Dec 2017 and the spring of 2019. Mostly in New York at my apartment, but some of it in Chicago, Los Angeles, and various cities while touring around Europe. This record is an account of the beauty, confusion, anger, joy and sadness I experienced during that time. I think I was as lost as I was madly in love. In these songs I hear myself sometimes desperate for clarity, and other times, having enough perspective to laugh at myself in some of my darkest moments. That’s sort of what this album is about, I hope you enjoy it.”

        With the album announcement comes a new song – “Do U Wanna” – and a video for the song directed by prior Porches collaborator Nick Harwood. ““Do U Wanna” is a song about looking at yourself and realizing the disparity between how you’d like to act and how you actually act. The fun you vs. the isolated you. I feel like with the refrain I’m almost taunting myself to get up and do something.”

        Porches

        The House

          ‘The House’ is the third full-length album from New York musician Porches (aka Aaron Maine).

          The 14-song affair features contributions from (Sandy) Alex G, Dev Hynes, Okay Kaya, Maya Laner (True Blue), Bryndon Cook (Starchild & The New Romantic), Cameron Wisch (Cende) and Maine’s own father Peter Maine.

          ‘The House’ was written and recorded over an 18- month stretch, immediately following the completion of Porches’ breakthrough record ‘Pool’. Taking a diary-like approach, Aaron documents a period of time through the 14 gorgeous songs on this record.

          STAFF COMMENTS

          Barry says: Like an introspective mix of the synth-heavy downbeat vibes of James Blake, mixed with grand, room-filling layers of vocals and melody. Brimming with euphoria, but tinged with a covert despair. Stunning.

          Porches is the project of Aaron Maine, who resides in New York City. ‘Pool’ is Porches’ second full length album and their debut on Domino.

          Written and recorded almost entirely in the Manhattan apartment he shares with his partner and frequent collaborator Greta Kline (aka Frankie Cosmos), ‘Pool’ is an elegantly drawn set of gorgeous, synth-driven pop songs that were influenced, in part, by settling down.

          ‘Pool’ was written, recorded and produced by Aaron Maine and mixed in Los Angeles by Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear, Beach House, Tobias Jesso Jr).
