Porcelain Raft just announced the release of their new album, Half Awake EP which is set for release in June via Volcanic Field. Additionally, Porcelain Raft also announced dates for his summer tour.
The release of the Half Awake EP marks the first album Porcelain Raft (Mauro Remiddi) will drop via his new record label, Volcanic Field. He created the unique label to encompass all that his music has to offer. According to a press release “[The label came]from the need to create a house for all my music and ideas, stated Porcelain Raft. “A sort of archive, a diary of my work in progress, for the sake to tell the story and tell it all.”
The track “All In My Head” from the album premiered today via Stereogum. The full album will be released digitally and as a limited edition cassette tape. The tapes comes with a handmade linoleum print created by Porcelain Raft.
In the press release, Porcelain Raft explained his choice of a cassette release. “I started recording when I was 14 years old, using a cassette recorder, playing piano, creating fake radio programs. Than at 18 my first proper recording device was a 4 track cassette, so for me cassettes are not a novelty or a format that I just discovered. It’s always been there, I love that saturated sound, I know that hiss by heart. That hiss makes me feel at home.”
