Porridge & Hotsauce is the tenth studio album by Australian alternative rock band You Am I, released in November 2015 via You Am I and Inertia.

You Am I were formed in Sydney in 1989 by Tim Rogers on vocals, guitar, mellotron and Hammond organ; his older brother Jaimme Rogers on drums; and Nick Tischler on bass guitar. At an early gig, a fan provided "a big spiritual spiel about '.... I am you... you am i...'. The band took that as the inspiration for the working title" for the group's name. This initial line-up was short-lived, Jaimme left before the end of the following year and was replaced by Mark Tunaley on drums. In the band's 1993 song, "Jaimme's Got a Gal", Tim explained why his brother left.

By April 1992 Tischler had left the band "because he didn't think he could fulfill Tim's vision". He was replaced by their previous live sound mixer, Andy Kent, on bass guitar. In May they released a five-track EP, Goddamn, which was produced by Tom Kazas. By that stage, Rogers had established his credentials as a fine songwriter and the band a reputation as an exciting, dynamic live act.

They are the first Australian band to have released three successive albums, which have each debuted at the number-one position on the ARIA Albums Chart.

Their first studio album release in five years Porridge & Hotsauce was recorded at Daptone's House of Soul Studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn, with some additional recording taking place at two studios in Melbourne.

Michael Dwyer wrote a positive review about the new album for Rolling Stone magazine Australia, rating the album with 4 stars as follows:

“…There’s nothing like a gleeful middle finger to signal an unrepentant return. Especially with the other hand flapping behind your ear and one Cuban heel stomping double time. “Good Advices” is just such a spectacular act of dancing-backwards co-ordination for Tim Rogers & Co: as sassy a set-opener as any in You Am I’s esteemed back pages.

That’s the Dap-Kings’ horns and soul chorus on “Two Hands”. A positively oceanic string section empathises with Rogers’ classic romantic desperation in “One Drink At a Time”. In “Out To the Never, Now” and “Buzz the Boss”, drummer Rusty Hopkinson and guitarist Davey Lane each rise to the occasion on thrashing cymbals and walls of power-pop harmony. In more familiar grooves, a metronomic guitar and close-miked strings place Rogers’ confessional “Daemons” smack in the “Purple Sneakers”/“Heavy Heart” lineage, and “Beehive” recalls some of the Carnaby Street pomp of Hourly Daily.

The fact that all of this smacks more of wide parameters than comfy laurels or furtive experimentation is testament to a seemingly effortless energy which, after some 25 years, will kick your arse and refuse to apologise...”

Check out the tracks:  Good Advices”; “Bon Vivants”; “Two Hands”; and Buzz The Boss”.

This LP record is on black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve, pressed in Australia.
