The session will be rebroadcast (dates and times below) on SiriusXMU via satellite on channel 35 and through the SiriusXM app on smart phones and other connected devices, as well as online at While in their hometown of New York City, the band stopped by their studio to play songs from the debut album Pool. As well as a version of The Strokes’ song “Trying Your Luck” from their iconic album Is This It.

Porches started their tour last month playing SXSW. which also had the band’s frontman Aaron Maine guest at producer, songwriter, and performer Blood Orange’s show at the Youtube House.

Pool, Porches’ (aka Aaron Maine) debut full-length for Domino, and a major step forward for Maine -as an evolving singer/songwriter, and as a nascent producer. Written and recorded almost entirely in his Manhattan apartment, and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Tobias Jesso Jr) in Los Angeles, Pool was influenced, in part, by settling in the city as an artist and a person. Says Maine, “there was something special about recording this album in my new home. To be surrounded by the city and in my own world at the same time. I quickly became obsessed with the energy around me, and my experience of New York – I was forced to see my music in an entirely different context. This was challenging, but also exciting, when the songs started to sound like a true reflection of what I was feeling in my new surroundings.”
