Mauro Remiddi has been very busy this year. As the heart and soul of Porcelain Raft, he has been touring non-stop as the opening act for the likes of M83 and Youth Lagoon, introducing city after city to his debut album, Strange Weekend. I was fortunate enough to catch his show with Youth Lagoon at the Independent in San Francisco the other night. In a word, it was amazing.
Performing alongside only a talented drummer, Remiddi filled the intimate venue with his lo-fi pop. He was a great showman and impressed the heck out of me with his presence and sound. He closed his set with “Unless You Speak From Your Heart,” and so I have chosen to post it today. Enjoy.
