PORCELAIN RAFT

Emusic’s Porcelain Raft Video Experience

 
“Strange Weekend is the snapshot of time. You don’t know what’s going on or you know something’s going on.” – Mauro Remiddi

A few weeks ago emusic invited unsuspecting New Yorkers to join in on a Porcelain Raft video shoot. By utilizing some technological trickery, they set up a speaker so music would play while people stood in a certain spot. What happened next was pure reaction and it’s all caught on film, with Mauro’s “Picture” as the guiding force. Sure it’s strange and maybe even a little weird, but at it’s best the experiment shows people behaving in their natural form. It’s difficult not to smile as you see how the unexpected can lead to true joy. Watch above.

Porcelain Raft Announces 7″, Releases Video for “Drifting In and Out”

Premiering Porcelain Raft’s video for “Drifting In and Out” earlier this morning, NPR says, “It’s pretty amazing what a person can do with smoke, a few lights and some good editing…Remiddi creates what I imagine it’s like inside the head of a person just about to start dreaming. The video is surreal, but never dives into nightmare territory.” Mauro Remiddi brings us the new video just in time for the announcement of his new Drifting In and Out b/w Chain 7″, out June 26th. Watch the video below!

See Porcelain Raft live in concert with Youth Lagoon. Dates HERE.

 

Porcelain Raft in a Brilliant Take Away Show

La Blogotheque brings us a brilliant new Take Away Show, featuring Porcelain Raft in rare form. “Mauro Remiddi strips away the protective, Rococo layers of his newly-minted ‘Strange Weekend’ and shows the strength of his foundations.” Indeed, there is strength as well as a poignant beauty, as Mauro offers his voice, piano, distant percussion and little else. In the first video, he performs “Is It Too Deep for You” and “Backwords” and then moves to a local coffee shop to finish the session with “Drifting In and Out.” Both videos are available for viewing above.

Porcelain Raft Unveils New Video for “Something In Between”

Porcelain Raft unveils the new video for “Something In Between,” the B-side to the “Unless You Speak From Your Heart” 7-inch, out next Tuesday, February 21st. With its “surprising swagger,” Pitchfork just named “Unless You Speak From Your Heart” Best New Track. You can pre-order HERE.

The video follows suit with a series Mauro Remiddi is creating for his recently released album, Strange Weekend. He says, “A few months ago I filmed the billboard you see at the beginning of the video. I forgot about those images I took until a week ago, while driving back after filming the video for ‘Unless You Speak From You Heart’, we saw the same exact billboard collapsed on the BQE, very close to where I live. That structure consisted of two different billboards that don’t face each other but are connected somehow. ‘Something In Between’ feels like the right title for that.”

Porcelain Raft is on tour NOW in Europe with M83. He’ll be back in the States later this spring with Youth Lagoon. See all dates HERE.
