Read the 4 star MOJO review HERE!
Advance Base is new music by Owen Ashworth, formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone.
Walking the line between electronic pop & more traditional singer/songwriter forms, Owen Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed tunes around his conversational, baritone vocals, using electric pianos, Omnichords, orchestral samples, & drum machines. The sound of Advance Base has been described as "depressed," "lo-fi," & "pop."
Advance Base has recently supported live dates for The Postal Service, Ben Gibbard, David Bazan, Dean Wareham, Mark Kozelek & Stephin Merritt.
The debut Advance Base album is called A Shut-In's Prayer & it was released in North America by Caldo Verde Records (CD) & Orindal Records (vinyl/digital). Tomlab Records released special edition CDs & LPs for Europe & UK.
All available merchandise, including t-shirts, vinyl records, & MP3s can be purchased from Orindal Records.
Advance Base is named after the Antarctic meteorological station & psychedelic death trap that nearly killed Admiral Richard E. Byrd during the winter of 1934.
