Porcelain Raft wasn’t too much on my radar before I got to see him last year at SXSW, at the Transparent x Forest Family Recs showcase. Mauro Remiddi somehow transcends age, both physicality and musically. You can tell he’s no youngster, there’s something ‘lived’ about him, yet there somehow remains a freshness in his eyes.
From reading more about his life and experiences, it’s no wonder his music is as eclectic, solid, and enjoyable as it is. He directed this video for one of his more upbeat and infectious pop songs on his new album Strange Weekend out now on Secretly Canadian. You can stream the whole thing on his facebook.
