Porches is the New York-based disheveled lo-fi folk rock project that put out the album with the title of the year: Slow Dance in the Cosmos. That name is just a hint of the strangely honest, poetic lyrics that the record contains. The group is fronted by singer-songwriter Aaron Maine, who has put out eight records in the last six years under different monikers, but together they hone slow-pop sadness through the mesh of taut Casio strains. Come for the slow reel squalor, stay for the cosmic comparisons.
