Porcelain Raft - 'The Way Out'

There's a lot of great new music to be expected during the autumn and now you can also add Porcelain Raft on your waiting list. Porcelain Raft, the stage name of Mauro Remiddi, is an Italy-based indie musician currently living in New York and, in my opinion, one of the most exciting songwriters around. To call him a newcomer would be an act of ignorance as he has been making music and travelling around the world ever since the 1990s, but it wasn't until 2012 that he released his debut album Strange Weekend. A writer of emotional lo-fi music, he makes music that plucks your heartstrings and although machine-made, sounds extremely vulnerable and human. Porcelain Raft has a new album coming out, preceded by the single "The Way Out". It also has a music video where a stripper is sexually assaulted but succeeds to strangle her attacker. You know, basic stuff.

In case you haven't heard of the musician in question do not worry a bit. I will be introducing him / reviewing his debut album shortly. I've also been listening to his forthcoming album in advance so another review is to be written sometime in the future. So much to write about, so little time!
