Advance Base, Pop Weirdos, Nathan K.

All but abandoning the primitive setup of his last project—the hard-touring, highly confessional Casiotone for the Painfully Alone—for a more fleshed-out sound, Chicago-area songwriter Owen Ashworth’s Advance Base is currently touring in support of this summer’s Nephew in the Wild LP. The music is somewhat fuller, with live drums and guitars in the mix alongside Ashworth’s signature lo-fi electro vibes, but the singer’s timorous, vaguely wounded baritone hasn’t changed that much; fans of his former work or early Pedro the Lion will find much with which to connect.
