    Baeblemusic is proud to showcase Porcelain Raft, the hometown Brooklyn outfit fronted by seasoned indie musician Mauro Remiddi at this year's upcoming NYRR's Brooklyn Half Pre-Party Presented by New Balance. Performing on May 14, Porcelain Raft's signature style of ambient shoegaze and vivid dream pop will translate into an intimate setlist highlighted by Remiddi's artistic complexity.

    Garnering critical acclaim for 2013's Permanent Signals, Porcelain Raft's knack for impeccable orchestration gained mainstream attention for combining unorthodox melodies with complex instrumental interludes. The beauty of Remiddi's songwriting lies in his lyrical storytelling that depicts his experiences while living in Italy, London, and Brooklyn. Even though musicians tend to live unordinary lifestyles, Remiddi's emigration from one country to another cost him friendships with those closest to him. He said, "I was touring almost non-stop for eight months and I started having these imaginary conversations in my head with people I wanted to communicate with. This is where the album title came from: the idea of a signal that says the line is off."

    Remiddi's musical vision came full circle in Brooklyn where he has devoted his attention to growing Porcelain Raft's sound in the capital of indie music. With a live performance highlighted with rumbling synthesizers atop of intimate vocal harmonies, Porcelain Raft's pulsing musicality is sure to stand out as one the festival's highlights.

    In honor of this year's Brooklyn Half, Remiddi was kind enough to provide us with a playlist of his favorite running songs. Check it out below, and make sure you come see Porcelain Raft on Wednesday, May 14th at 6:15 PM at Pier 2 in Brooklyn Bridge Park (Event Details).
