And I couldn't miss his show in (his hometown!) Rome again (formerly, he was here touring Italy with Blonde Redhead). Plus, not for nothing, folks, - it was a free show, thank you Circolo degli Artisti. And it looks like Porcelain Raft has got a solid small fanbase downere.
In two on stage, he was supported by Michael Wallace on live drums and synth, while Mauro been switching from loopstation and wires to his Danelectro: spacey/ambient dreampop with a slight lo-fi feeling, his vocals are utterly lyrical, all of much gusto, no wonder he was recently the perfect match for supporting M83 in Europe in last months. He's able of a certain bitter mysticism even when he sings of a receptionist (Dragonfly). Tracks such as Is It Too Deep for You?, Unless you speak from your heart, Shapeless & Gone: simply beautiful. The final bathing in reverb and effects of Put me to sleep, - gorgeous.
After the show I jumped to buy Strange Weekend, and so you should.
not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
