Porchcoreis many things. They put out T-shirts, stickers, buttons, 7”s, and yes, zines. I really enjoyed this read, having already been a fan of them from the music they put out (what’s up, Badlands!). Porchcore reads like you’re having a conversation with an old friend and catching up. In this issue, our author tells the origin story of the hilarious cover photo (a self portrait of the author wearing a “die yuppie scum” oversized shirt, fist raised, hair wild), what music they’ve been listening to lately, reviews of friends, their beliefs on whether being gay is or is not a choice, music that changed their (and their friend’s) lives, and wraps the zine up with their gym routine. My favorite part was a collage featuring pictures of their (I assume?) cat near the beginning. More cat photos please! –Tricia Ramos (Porchcore, porchcore.bigcartel.com)
