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.

Slip Into the Spacey Pool of Tygaton at Ortlieb's Feb. 11

Slip into the spacey pool of Tygaton tonight at Ortlieb’s. The quintet develops an emulsified, comforting sound - over-driven guitars rattling in one’s head. Soak in that slow-cooked sonic stew with its sorcerer-led, enchanting, multi-pronged vocals guiding the passage through foggy surroundings. Tygation finds an equilibrium of travel between full-throttle and floating. Joining in on journey will be the fuzzy, shoegazing four-piece of Dreambook and the opaque, surf-shoegazing combo of Woven In, whom recently released a new EP New City No MoneyOrtlieb’s, 847 N. Third St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
