See Porcelain Raft and Aislyn Tomorrow Night at Mercury Lounge

February 23rd, 2011

Some melodies feel instantly recognizable, like a long-forgotten song you hum without even knowing the words. This experience of vague familiarity is pervasive throughout the growing catalog of singer-songwriter Mauro Remiddi’s bedroom-pop project, Porcelain Raft. And with a slew of EPs released in 2010 and a reworked version of the EP Gone Blind, out yesterday, Porcelian Raft (above, doing “Best Glue” for Blue Flowers TV) returns to Mercury Lounge tomorrow night for his first New York City show since last year’s CMJ festival. Check Porcelian Raft’s Bandcamp for all the previous EPs and also be sure to catch the opener Aislyn, featuring Ian Hultquist of Passion Pit. —Jared Levy
