Advance Base / Karima Walker / John Davis
Owen Ashworth used to release his lo-fi keyboard pop under the name Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, but these days he calls it Advance Base.
Walking the line between electronic music & traditional singer/songwriter forms, Ashworth writes minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed songs of longing & regret. His conversational, baritone vocals sing stories of hard-luck Midwesterners & their demons amid swirls of electric pianos, Omnichords, drum machines & samples.
Advance Base's second album, Nephew in the Wild, was named #1 Indie Pop album of 2015 by PopMatters.
Karima Walker is an experimental musician from Tucson, Arizona. Interweaving drone, field recordings, tape loops and traditional song structures she creates large, paced arrangements that provide a horizon for her minimal, ambient songwriting.
Wake the Deaf named Karima Walker's self-released 2016 cassette Hands in Our Names one of their favorite albums of the year. A newly remixed, resequenced and remastered vinyl edition of Hands in Our Names will be released on March 24, 2017 by Orindal Records.
John Davis is a recording artist & multi-instrumentalist originally from Cambridge MA, where he started The Folk Implosion with partner Lou Barlow in the summer of 1993 before leaving the band in 2001. John relocated to Durham, NC in August of 2013 to begin working with producer Scott Solter on a muckraking cycle of songs about corporate corruption in the food industry and related issues like (im)migration, mass incarceration, public health, and the stock market. Previews of the resulting album, El Pulpo, will start appearing online in April leading up to a September release via Shrimper/Revolver here in the US & Canada and Arbouse Recordings in Europe and Japan.
