Porcelain Raft - Silent Speech

Porcelain Raft created one of my favorite albums from last year.  His debut full length record, Strange Weekend, was a beautifully crafted story and I feel like it finally gave Porcelain Raft the recognition he deserves.  If you haven't heard it yet, then you should probably stop reading right now and go listen to it.  (Amazon/Spotify)

Earlier today, Mauro Remiddi, the man behind the name, wrote a short piece explaining what he's been up to these last few months.  Aside from plenty of touring, he's recording a new album.  Back in September, Mauro sold all of the instruments used on Strange Weekend in order to avoid any sound-alike moments on the new record.  Now with a new set of equipment, he's working away in the studio.  Apparently, a modular synth was the inspiration for a series of late night recording sessions.  These sessions are now Silent Speech, a new instrumental EP.  The EP is definitely a slight shift in direction for Porcelain Raft.  It's a bit more abstract when compared to previous releases, but all five songs still manage to have that free-flowing atmospheric sound.

You can check out Silent Speech on Soundcloud, or stream it below.  You can also read the original tumblr post about the project on Porcelain Raft's blog.
