September 2015
Advance Base
"Nephew In The Wild
"
mp3

To say an album "returns to form" seems to allude to something being off or missing or in a deformed state in previous releases. With the new album from Advance Base (aka Owen Ashworth), Nephew In The Wild, it is more of a beautiful blending of two "forms". This album could have easily been the first Casiotone for the Painfully Alone album since 2009's Vs. Children. This is a clear return to the sound and storytelling of the Casiotone persona. The album's open track and lead single "Trisha Please Come Home" in the perfect example. Ashworth spins tales of the everyday but tinges of sadness. His stories are sweet and sad, and always fully realized. Musically, the album is filled with familiar sounds from an array of instruments; Electric pianos, drum kits, drum machines, autoharps, Omnichords, Optigans, Mellotrons. All of this, blending with Ashworth's skill, create a perfect late summer and early fall soundtrack.


This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

Connecticut fuzz-pop band Furnsss' wistful "New Moves"

This past August, Connecticut fuzz-pop quartet Furnsss shared 'New Moves,' its bruised yet romantic latest effort. Comprised of such guitar-grained songs as "Jansport" and "Slow Dark Water" (streaming below), the brisk release radiates with longing for love and inner peace while admirably accepting current duress and frustration. Angst does seem to be a preoccupation of Furnsss (who previously released their full-length, ‘Silent Gold,’ last year) but, with their welcoming aura, a sense of ease prevails. While the band doesn't currently have forthcoming shows listed, keep posted on their Facebook page. -  Zach Weg

Connecticut slacker rock revivalists Stove release debut album "Is Stupider" on Friday (11.20) + plays The Outer Space on 11.23

Connecticut act Stove's guitar-fuzzed songs may fall under the genre of slacker rock revival but they emit a pure passion that is hardly lacksadaisical. On tracks such as "Lowt-Ide Fins" (streaming below) off its debut album 'Is Stupider,' singer/multi-instrumentalist Steve Hartlett coolly yet fiercely sets scenes of longing against walls of stormy strings and fast drums, a pining eking through the chaos. Like the subtly involving last track off Mac Demarco's 'Another One,' these songs move the listener with their very mellowness. Stove will release 'Is Stupider' this Friday (11.20) and will play The Outer Space in Hamden, CT on 11.23.- Zach Weg
