ADVANCE BASE (Chicago, IL)
Advance Base is Owen Ashworth, the dude from Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. Using a two handed arsenal of synthesizers, samplers, drum machines & looping pedals, Owen Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed electronic folk songs around his conversational, baritone vocals. The sound of Advance Base has been described as «lo-fi,» «depressed» & «weirdly uplifting.» Advance Base's 2015 LP, Nephew in the Wild, was named #1 Indie Pop album of the year by PopMatters.
