New York-based band Porches makes ambient, atmospheric music with an emotive edge. Similar to bands like Beach House, Animal Collective, and Wild Nothing, Porches embraces an ethereal, dreamy sound that hides the serious, dark nature of the majority of its lyrics. Porches released a full-length album, "Slow Dance in the Cosmos," full of relaxed, murky pop tunes perfect for getting lost.
Porches performs with Attic Abasement, Del Paxton, and Summer People on Saturday, March 22, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $8-$10. Bugjar.com.
