Porcelain Raft announces Half Awake EP, shares

On June 2nd, dream pop wizard Mauro Remiddi returns with a new EP under his Porcelain Raft moniker. Half Awake spans five tracks and follows his pair of 2013 releases: the Permanent Signal LP and Silent Speech EP. Half Awake will be available digitally via his very own Volcanic Field label and as a limited edition cassette tape.

In a press release, the Los Angeles-based Remiddi spoke about his decision to go with the retro medium:

“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 4 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.”

Our first glimpse at Half Awake comes with “All In My Head”, a heavenly, synth-soaked cut that finds a ruminative Remiddi with his head in the clouds. Listen in below.

Half Awake EP Tracklist:
01. Leave Yourself Alone
02. Half Awake
03. All In My Head
04. Love Chain
05. Something Is After Me

Porcelain Raft will also hit the road for a short US tour in June.

stream Todd Rundgren, Emil Nikolaisen & Hans-Peter Lindstrøm's weird collaborative album, 'Runddans'
Apr 27, 2015 3:13pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Todd Rundgren, Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh) and Hans-Peter Lindstrøm's collaborative album, Runddans, is out next week via Smalltown Supersound. A 40-minute piece that's been chopped up into 12 song-like parts, Runddans often sounds like someone scanning the lowest reaches of the FM dial: free jazz, new age and noise all smush together into a musical collage. Occasionally things that sound like pop music bubble to the surface but are gone before you can fully take hold. It's out there, man, and you can listen to the whole thing via the New Yorker, below.

You can catch Rundgren in a more straightforward setting (playing the hits) when his tour hits Highline Ballroom on May 5 & 6 (tickets).

FULL SCREEN: Tanya Tagaq surveys life on earth, Jamie xx goes global
Apr 27, 2015 2:40pm | Chart Attack
Full Screen collects all of the remarkable videos we've seen in the last 24 hours. Today, Tanya Tagaq gives us blood and buildings, Jamie xx goes global, Ben Khan gets deranged.

Tanya Tagaq, "Uja"

Tanya Tagaq's epoch-defining performance of "Uja" and "Umingmak" at the Polaris Prize was so transcendent it made us bend the rules and put it on our Best Music Videos of 2014 list. Now she has an actual music video for the song, courtesy of Manitoba's Procter Bros. Like Tagaq's music, the video is intense and epic, juxtaposing images of rapid, whizzing neon lighted cityscapes filled with blood money and stark, red-stained, snow-covered wilderness filled with wolves, bears and bloodthirsty birds. It's an unsettling meditation on civilization and nature and it's almost as indescribable as her live show. Almost. - Richard Trapunski

Tanya Tagaq's Animism is out now via Six Shooter Records.

Jamie xx, "Gosh"

Jamie xx's new video "Gosh" is literally out of this world. Directed by Swedish digital artist Erik Wernquist, the video depicts real high-resolution landscapes of Mars and Earth from the perspective of an auteurist satellite courtesy to NASA and other sources. "Gosh" is very extraterrestrial, matching Jamie xx's futuristic minimalist PC sounds, that slowly build as the video begins to zoom in and shape a narrative that imagines life in space....

Daft Punk pay tribute to Nile Rodgers in new video
Apr 27, 2015 2:10pm | Fact Magazine

Daft Punk write an email to their hero and collaborator from inside their spaceship.

Nile Rodgers’ renaissance began with Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ and appears to be culminating in a new album by Chic. Now has a tribute the masked producers have filmed a little tribute to Rodgers in a very appropriate Daft Punk style. In what appears to be a space ship’s computer screen, Daft Punk (seen mainly in the glass reflection) use their robot hands to type out a loving note to the guitarist. The clip is from the recent documentary on Rodgers titled Nile Rodgers: From Disco To Daft Punk.

Watch the clip below and look for Chic’s new album this June. Update: Rodgers tells Billboard that Elton John and Janelle Monae will be featured on the album, and he’s hoping to add an unnamed “pop diva,” as well.

The Vaccines
Apr 27, 2015 2:00pm | StereoGum
Angsty Brit dreamboats are a foundational part of rock and roll's history, and the Vaccines continue that legacy with relish. They took three years to themselves after 2012's Come Of Age -- a #1 album in the UK -- and return this year with the jittery English Graffiti. It's their third album and their first … More »



L'Amour: Rock Capital of Brooklyn, the book
Apr 27, 2015 1:59pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Another piece of Brooklyn rock history is being documented. From the Amazon listing:

During the disco drenched year of 1978, 62nd Street in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, was home to L'Amour, a small, unassuming discothéque thriving on a local dance crowd. "Rock Nights" on Thursdays were first brushed off as a bad joke. But in less than a year, blindsided by scores of disgruntled heavy metal misfits, the punch-line of that bad joke swelled into a quarter-century-long tsunami of hell-raising mayhem that turned a faceless disco into the world's most famous heavy metal mecca.

L'Amour: Rock Capital of B'klyn is a large format book jammed with over 1,000 full-color photographs, ticket stubs, and memorabilia representing the rich music history of the Brooklyn venue. Hundreds of full-color performance photos of the bands that hit the L'Amour stage are featured prominently in the book, as well as interviews with many of the musicians. Venue staff, club regulars, and show attendees contribute slices of club life. L'Amour: Rock Capital of B'klyn tells the story in stunning images and words of the famous heavy metal venue and its important contributions to the scene. If you are a heavy metal fan, or just a music history buff in general, this book is a must have.

Bent Denim

Bent Denim is Dennis Sager and Bennett Littlejohn, a puppy-dog-eyed duo who pass emotions back and forth between New Orleans to Nashville until misty, gut-wrenching songs coalesce. Ahead of its release we are streaming their entire Romances You EP, but today they also shared the video to accompany its first track "Good Night's Sleep." … More »

We don't post a whole lot of jazz here on Stereogum, at least in part because I genuinely do not know shit about it. But the saxophonist Kamasi Washington has plenty of overlap with stuff we do post. Flying Lotus is releasing Washington's new album The Epic on his Brainfeeder label. Washington plays on … More »



Warm Soda streaming new album, touring (dates)
Apr 27, 2015 1:40pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Warm Soda release their third album, Symbolic Dream, next week (5/5). This is Warm Soda's third album in as many years and while I loved their debut, I wasn't as excited about its followup. Symbolic Dream, however, is maybe their best yet. Ostensibly there's not any difference between the three -- hooky, mid-fi powerpop that sounds like its coming out of an AM radio in 1979 -- and main man Matthew Melton can crank this stuff out in his sleep. Maybe it was his move to Austin, or something else, Whatever the case may be, the songs this time just pop. You can stream the album in full (via Stereogum) below.

Now that they're more centrally located, hopefully we'll see Warm Soda on the East Coast more often. No shows this way yet but they will be busy on tour and all dates are listed below...
