HEAR THIS: Porcelain Raft
Mauro Remeddi struck a chord with the first Porcelain Raft LP, Strange Weekend, then proceeded off on his own journey, culminating with this year’s ethereal wonder, Microclimate. Given the overall arc of his musical path (ex-Sunny Day Sets Fire) around Porcelain Raft, it was a given. Forsaking the easy hook for a deeper approach, the payoff culminates with repeated listens. Finding the right balance in a live setting is tricky, and it’s to his credit that he can transform the intimate songs of Microclimate into something bigger.
Currently opening for Blonde Redhead on their West Coast swing, our Nest ace Leslie Hampton caught the action at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. Check out more of the gallery below.
