Porcelain Raft (aka Mauro Remiddi) has surprise released a brand new six song EP entitled Pressed Flowers on his own Volcanic Field label. You can download it for free via Bandcamp or stream it over at Soundcloud. Remiddi found an old mini-recorder from when he lived in London a decade ago and discovered a bunch of old demos on there, which he has transformed into these new songs. Stream it/download it below.

Remiddi had this to say about the EP in a press release: “Back in 2006 I was living in London and had a portable recorder where I noted music ideas, mostly 30 sec long. I’m sure it was 2006 because that year a whale was discovered swimming in the river Thames, in the center of London. That is something hard to forget. To my surprise few weeks ago, in my place in Los Angeles, I saw the little recorder resting peacefully in one of my boxes. I put new batteries on and pressed play. It felt like opening a giant book filled with pressed flowers, with the colors still intact. In 10 days I wrote lyrics and turned the notes into songs. Londoners gathered to see the rescue’s attempts. According to the press the reasons for the whale presence in the Thames were unclear.”
