Emerging from relative dormancy, Porcelain Raft, aka musical artist Mauro Remiddi, announced yesterday the arrival of a brand new EP titled Half Awake. Due out June 2, the release will be distributed digitally and on cassette on Remiddi’s own new label Volcanic Field.

According to a statement from Remiddi the label was “born from the need to create a house for all my music and ideas. A sort of archive, a diary of my work in progress, for the sake to tell the story and tell it all. 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 four 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. I started making my own print, sculpting the linoleum bloc because I liked the feeling of creating something from nothing and have it in front of me, straight away tangible. Music somehow is way more abstract, you compose, than record, than wait to be a physical thing, it takes months. With the print, to see it in front of you, it take few hours. I’ve been recording a lot of music in the past two years, songs and also instrumental abstract stuff. This EP is only the tip of the iceberg and it feels very good to finally release it and share it, I cannot wait to play this songs live.”

In anticipation of the EP, Remiddi has shared the included track, “All In My Head.” Click below to listen.

For those that opt for the casette, each copy of the EP comes with a one-of-a-kind linoleum print made by Remiddi in his new home studio in LA.
