Porches aka Aaron Maine released his second studio album Pool in February through Domino Records. The album was recorded in his bedroom in New York. He will be performing a set at Made in America over Labor Day weekend in Philly and we got a few questions answered prior to his performance.

Rock On Philly: Your first date on the tour is Made in America. How will that set the tone for the rest of your tour dates?
Aaron Maine: Exciting to play new songs, wear new things, and put on a really special show.
ROP: Who are you looking forward to possibly seeing at Made in America?
ROP: What were the pros and cons of recording Pool in your apartment?
 AM: Being able to work on it whenever I wanted to was really good, but also was tricky to give yourself space from it when your studio is 10 ft away from you.

ROP: How do you tailor your tracks in performance for a large festival crowd vs a more intimate performance space?
AM: We usually play a similar set, though on larger stages I think the songs that are synth and drum machine heavy sound best because of the more powerful sound system.
