Porcelain Raft
Mauro Remiddi
from Brooklyn, NY
on Secretly Canadian
In 1997 he composed the music for the short film 'La Matta dei Fiori' which won the prize 'Davide di Donatello' for best short film. In 1999 he played his own composition at La Mama Theatre in New York as part of the tap dance show 'Vaudeville 2000'. After moving to UK he started a long term collaboration with video artist Ra Di Martino, composing and appearing in three of Di Martino's videos ('Not 360', 'Night Walker' and 'August 2008'). In 2003, under the name Three Blind Mice, artist/musician Onyee Lo and Mauro Remiddi started to play together as a duo, in 2005 they formed Sunny Day Sets Fire. In 2008 he collaborated with Filthy Dukes, singing on the track "Somewhere at Sea" for their debut album Nonsense in the Dark. His first Porcelain Raft EP, Gone Blind, was released on Acephale in 2010. Porcelain Raft's debut full-length, Strange Weekend, was released on Secretly Canadian in January of 2012.


The Tambo Rays
From San Francisco/Oakland
The Tambo Rays started in early 2012 as a one-man bedroom project by multi instrumentalist and producer Brian DaMert.The music of the Tambos seems inherently tied to the northern Californian coast they all grew up on – sunny, yet shrouded in that (in)famous San Francisco fog. You’ll find their vibed out pop aesthetic ranging from Beach Boys tinged harmonies in “Visions” to the reverb-soaked psychedelia of “Lost Beach”, which leaves you feeling adrift on a hazy ocean at sunset. It may always be summer to The Tambo Rays, just not the summer you’re used to.

Teenage Sweater
Mario Armando Ruiz
Connor Alfaro

The formula contains notes of classic new wave‚ Joy Division and New Order are easily heard in the nuances of Teenage Sweater's songs and a healthy dose of its modern incarnation, chillwave. Teenage Sweater is cheerful music for introverts. Indeed, everything about Teenage Sweater is somewhat light hearted, even the band name. But beneath the light playfulness, you'll find two serious musicians that embody the true spirit of DIY. Bartering landscape services to recording engineer Adam Sullivan at Great Magnet Studios, it is no wonder they chose to name their debut LP "Concentration".
Teenage Sweater is growing up fast in the Bay Area music scene and it's only a matter of time before they outgrow the training wheels offered to them by their indie label Tricycle Records.

“Captivating collection of new-new-wave dungeon pop that combines the aural breadth of New Order, with the brooding intensity of Zola Jesus” -The Deli Magazine
