Porches, the project of Aaron Maine, undoubtedly released one of the best albums of the year, namely, the hazy and gorgeously intricate Pool. To add to all the hype, Maine also recently released the Water EP, a collection of demos and unreleased tracks. Though the majority of the tracks do sound unfinished – as they should, they are demos after all – “Black Dress” is the exception, considering it has that same effortless vibe heard on the majority of Pool. At it’s core, however, Water serves more as a unique look behind the scenes, rather than something to be taken into consideration as much as the fantastic album it went on to create.
