https://advancebase.bandcamp.com

Advance Base is 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 "lo-fi," "depressed" & "weirdly uplifting."

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, A Shut-In's Prayer (2012), was released in North America by Mark Kozelek's Caldo Verde Records (CD) & Ashworth's own Orindal Records (vinyl/digital). Tomlab Records released special edition CDs & LPs for Europe & UK.

Nephew in the Wild, the second album by Advance Base, was released on August 21, 2015 by Orindal Records (US/AQ) & Tomlab Records (EU/UK).
