January 4, 2012
It’s a new year which for me means absorbing all the new music I can. There hasn’t been any big album leaks yet for 2012 (when is the last time that happened?), but digging a little deeper led me to Porcelain Raft, a shoegaze / dream-pop project from Londoner Mauro Remiddi, previously of Sunny Day Sets Fire. His upcoming album is called Strange Weekend and the first single is the wonderful “Put Me To Sleep”. It’s a beautifully crafted track, anchored by hypnotic drum machine and atmospheric synths, with an highly infectious chorus pulling you into the hazy, ethereal world he’s created. I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more from this promising artist.
Strange Weekend is out January 24th via Secretly Canadian.
