Advance Base (formally Casiotone...)

Postby ragamuffin » Wed May 23, 2012 3:00 pm

Here's the new video for Owen Ashworth's new project Advance Base. If you liked Casiotone then you'll probably like this new record. I think it's fantastic but I feel the same about the Casiotone records. If nothing else, the video is pretty great because it has puppets and pays homage to "Say Anything," one of my favorite films. Also, why is puppet sadness sadder than human sadness...

I'm hoping to catch the Advance Base set opening for Kozelek in Brooklyn in September. Big fan of his songs.

Was a big Casiotone fan and love the new Advance Base LP. First track is so good.

I'm surprised this place still exists.

I saw Advance Base on Sunday in LA, where he’s recording a new album. He tried out a bunch of new songs, including one of 4 that he says are about dogs names Walter.

Anyway, he played a new one about a husband and wife learning how to take care of each other. The husband wakes up in the middle of a fire in their house and realizes he can do this as they are standing outside embracing with smokey hair.

After, he asked if anyone had any questions and someone asked what the song was called. He said it was called Care, he thinks. The caveat is that he wrote it a year and a half ago and since then he went to see his good friend Dave Bazan who played a song called Care from an album called Care. But he talked to Dave and got his approval. Besides, it took him a year and a half to realize—who cares?
