Biography

Permanent Signal: according to Wikipedia, "a condition in which a phone line is off-hook without connection for an extended period of time."

It's a term that Mauro Remiddi returned to repeatedly when reflecting on the time between last year's release of Strange Weekend, the multi-instrumentalist's debut full-length as Porcelain Raft, and this, its proper follow-up. ... Read more in Amazon's Porcelain Raft Store

Editorial Reviews

Remiddi's androgynous vapor of a voice weaves like a ghost between Nick Gilder and The Alessi Brothers, Julee Cruise and Judee Sill. In more contemporary terms, Porcelain Raft stands confidently on a high hill between the sounds of M83 and Beach House. Lead track "Drifting In and Out" is loping and anthemic; gauzy and chiming. "Shapeless and Gone" follows with a heavy strum reminiscent of "Cosmic Dancer" full of mood and style without all the wearying excesses and feathered boas.

4.0 out of 5 stars electronic heartbreak February 25, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I tend to romanticize the idea of the lone musician. Alone, with nothing more than the tools of his or her trade(laptop, guitar, keyboard, microphone), the desire to create and the need to share that creation with the rest of the world. Within his or her safe place, be it a bedroom, living room or basement, the artist is free to express their ideas, emotions and heart through the intimacy of songwriting. There have been many of these musicians over the years that have gone the route of the studio hermit. Rather than surround themselves with musicians and collaborators, they take the lonely road and play every part. Overdubbing track after track, tweaking and fading, equalizing and compressing, fading in and fading out, adding and removing parts, till what they hear in their head is what they hear in their ears. Chillwave, a term I'm not particularly fond of, is a community of bedroom tweakers and laptop composers that are very much in the category of the lone wolf. Their self imposed solitary confinement to the bedroom, laptop, and Roland Juno-106 is out of necessity. These are the composers of the 21st century. They no longer need a symphony or music hall to display their art. They merely need a $30 music program and a laptop with a decent size hard drive. The keyboard is their symphony and the internet is their music hall.

Amongst the many artists to be included in this group, Porcelain Raft are one of the newer faces. The sole member, Londoner by way of Italy Mauro Remiddi, has a talent for creating dream-like soundscapes and lush arrangements that pull together both modern and classic synth pop.

4.0 out of 5 stars it's worth paying for February 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some really catchy songs here. I loved Porcelain Raft ever since I heard a song on Blalock's Indie Rock Playlist sometime last year. really happy with this, the songs Back Words and The Way In will bring tears.

this album was consistantly spacey without being snoozy. If you like the earlier albums froom air, or the lighter stuff from cold cave and the animal collective then you should thouroughly enjoy this.
