Porcelain Raft, Flagship 

When: Wed., Oct. 2, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $8-9
Rome-born, London-based pop artist Mauro Remiddi has been performing for the past few years as Porcelain Raft, a kitchen-sink glam project that glazes his androgynous singing with a couple coats of the cozy haze that seemed to cover most indie rock in the late 2000s. His life before Porcelain Raft included stints as a member of the Berlin Youth Circus and as an off-Broadway piano player. But Porcelain Raft's 2012 debut, Strange Weekend, suggested that melancholy bedroom pop was probably his niche all along. At his best, on singles such as "Unless You Speak From Your Heart," Remiddi's modest formula becomes surprisinglybig. This summer's follow-up, Permanent Signal, features collaborations with members of guitar bands Yuck and The Antlers; the music remains in Remiddi's preferred mode—distant but dreamy. —Jeff Klingman
