Advance Base is playing The Low Beat on October 22 with support from Amy Bezunartea. Advance Base is new music by Owen Ashworth, as he retired the songs and name of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone in 2010.
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.
