Though my loyalty still lies with Porches’ 2016 album Pool, I’m very much in love with the New York synthpop and dream pop project’s latest album, The House, too. In fact, it’s still in rotation in my car right now, and I can’t get enough of the latest single off the album, Goodbye. Though lugubrious, Goodbye builds into a vibrant and rhythmic dance-ready spectacular, topped off with Aaron Maine’s friction-less voice. Goodbye carries that slick Porsches sheen, a glossy and cool velour. Before you know it, the track is over, but you’re not ready to say “goodbye”, so you dip back into the song. Maine released a music video for Goodbye recently, which allows us a worthy visit of the single. We get to watch him at a recital in a church. It all seems mundane, yet it’s finely nuanced and captivating. The House, out on Domino, can be purchased, here.

Pool was easily one of my favorite albums last year, so news of a third full length from New York based synthpop and dream pop project Porches is sweet music to my ears. The House will be arriving on January 19th via Domino. We’ve already fallen head over heels for Country, the first single we heard off the record a few weeks ago. Now, we can take in yet another treat off The House via this new music video directed by Nick Harwood and Porches’ own Aaron Maine. Find Me is a meditative pulsing, percussive shuffling gem that feels like it’s just on the verge of full on rave-y. There’s an unsettling quality to its video that befits the song’s jittery exploration of anxiety, isolation, and escape. You can stream or purchase the single, here. Pre-order the House digitally, here, and on CD/LP, here.

Porches’ 2016 sophomore album Pool was one of my favorites that year, so my heart fluttered with joy when the New York based band lead by Aaron Maines shared a fresh new tune via a music video Maines co-directed with Nick Harwood today. Country even features backing vocals by Bryndon Cook and Dev Hynes, that ever amazing artist also known as Blood Orange. The song blooms effusively, a delicate and tender suffusion that slowly takes hold of every corner of the heart. Maine says that this is the last song he wrote for his new album. He’s been hard at work this past year working on the follow up to Pool. Country brings us his signature vulnerability with a fresh baroque and chamber pop like leafiness. Download Country, here.

This morning, I received a much welcome email from Domino Records. My CD copy of Porches new album, Pool, had left the shop and is well on its way into my eager hands. While it may take some time for Pool to reach me, I get to listen to and share a new reveal off the album today. Car blends sparkling indie pop with glossy new wave, and it’s yet another fabulous preview off of Pool, its gentle amble full of woozy splendor. You can pre-order a copy of Pool, too, on iTunes or from Domino.

Foggy yet sleek is intoxicating new song Forgive, from New York’s Porches. The song features some honeyed, autotune utilizing vocals by Greta Kline. The combo is actually a reversal of duo Frankie Cosmos, the two’s other project together. On Forgive, the duo create a lustrous, spacey synthpop soundscape, both retro and futuristic, with a saccharine boy girl matchup that reminds me of Canada’s Stars.

Sylvan Esso – The Cosmos (Porches. Cover)

June 12, 2014

North Carolina duo Sylvan Esso has been the subject of much praise on IHM for over a year now, and I can’t begin to express my delight at how much exposure they’ve picked up in the past few months with their very unique future pop meets folk pop sound. I’ve always found their music enticing and enchanting, and I’m glad so many others are starting to feel the same. Today, I noticed that they’re coming back to play a show at the Independent in San Francisco when they go on tour late this summer. I caught them at the Bottom of the Hill early this year, and it was amazing, so you might be seeing me there again this time around. The duo also unveiled a recording of a cover they did.  Sylvan Esso’s cover of The Cosmos, by New York musician Porches., is bewitching and other worldly. The breathtaking beauty was recorded for SiriusXMU. They promise a full session later tonight.
