Alex William exists in that little in between space, between outer space and corporeal. fantastic. Favorite track: By My Side.

teresita I am always amazed when an artist can take a metaphor and keep it... Aaron's emotions are a deep dive in his minimalism...

I wonder if he is an introvert?
Favorite track: Find Me.

strelnik Simply awesome. This album accompanied me on a long drive for the first listen. Thicc beats and lush atmosphere yet still grounded with it's moodiness which feels like dancing while lost in a daydream also not to forget these sensations are amazing when turned up LOUD. Favorite track: Now The Water.

Porches’ third record The House is a conscious effort in minimalism and honesty. "Making Pool”—the band’s 2016 breakthrough record, and Domino debut—“I learned how valuable the spirit of the demos are,” says singer Aaron Maine, “so this time I made a point of capturing a song the day it was conceived.” Because of this desire to document immediate sensations, the record’s fourteen tracks offer a series of diaristic vignettes. There are moments of emerging from fear of ego death (“Leave the House,” “By My Side,” “Now The Water”), escaping the corporeal (“Now The Water,” “Swimmer”), the terrifying thrill of young love (“Country,” “W Longing”), and parting with the past (“Wobble,” “Goodbye”).While these themes possibly paint The House in a dark light, the record is marked by an excitement at the prospect of self-discovery, and commitment to the process of getting there.

Though Aaron largely composes on his own, The House features contributions by Alexander Giannascoli ((Sandy) Alex G), Dev Hynes (Blood Orange), Maya Laner (True Blue, Porches), Kaya Wilkins (Okay Kaya), Bryndon Cook (Starchild & the New Romantic), Cameron Wisch (Cende, Porches), Jason Arce, Bea1991, and his own father, Peter Maine. As with Pool, Aaron brought his recorded work to Chris Coady (Beach House, Slowdive, TV on the Radio), who then mixed The House at his Sunset Sound studio.
