“Assembled in a Brooklyn basement, Porcelain Raft’s debut Strange Weekend has this DIY aesthetic, but tolerates no defects in presentation. Italy native Mauro Remiddi’s solo project is built on meticulously constructed and delicately polished dream-pop soundscapes, delivered with urgency and momentum. “ A.V. Club

“The album is lush and opaque, brimming with gorgeous melodies that will keep you company for the rest of the day.” Pretty Much Amazing
