Advance Base

Advance Base is the electronic solo project of Chicago, IL singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone).
 
Using a two-handed arsenal of electric pianos, autoharps, Omnichords, loops, samples & drum machines, Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed tunes around his conversational, baritone vocals. The sound of Advance Base has been described as "lo-fi," "depressed" & "weirdly uplifting."
 
Advance Base has proudly supported live dates for The Postal Service, Pedro the Lion, The Mountain Goats, Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500/Luna), Alan Sparhawk (Low), Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters/Sun Kil Moon) & Stephin Merritt (The Magnetic Fields).
 
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). PopMatters named Nephew in the Wild the #1 Indie Pop Album of 2015. 
 
Animal Companionship, the third & most recent album by Advance Base, will be released September 21, 2018 by Run For Cover Records / Orindal Records.
 
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.
