Owen Ashworth used to release his lo-fi keyboard pop under the nameCasiotone for the Painfully Alone, but these days he calls it Advance Base.
Walking the line between electronic music & traditional singer/songwriter forms, Ashworth writes minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed songs of longing & regret. His conversational, baritone vocals sing stories of hard-luck Midwesterners & their demons amid swirls of electric pianos, Omnichords, drum machines & samples.
Advance Base’s second album, Nephew in the Wild, was named #1 Indie Pop album of 2015 by PopMatters.
Hello Shark is the Philadelphia-based project of Lincoln Halloran. Orindal Records will be releasing his third album this August.
