Advance Base // Gia Margaret
Advance Base is new music by Casiotone for the Painfully Alone mastermind Owen Ashworth. Under his new moniker, Ashworth conjures dreamy waltzes, heavy-hearted ballads & electropop-styled torch songs from antiquated instruments such as Rhodes electric pianos, Omnichords, Wurlitzer rhythm boxes, & samplers. Advance Base songs deal with deceased racehorses, estranged siblings, hard feelings, & all things long lost. A Shut-In's Prayer, the debut album from Advance Base, was number 19 on MOJO Magazine's Best Albums of 2012 list.

Over the past five years, Chicago native Gia Margaret has built a loyal following for her home-recorded pop & folk tunes through her Soundcloud & YouTube pages. While often lauded for her deft guitar playing & a gorgeously melodic voice that leaps across genres, Gia Margaret has been honing her skills as a songwriter & producer; Gia's recent output demonstrates that she is her pushing her sound into new sonic territories, incorporating elements of electronica, chamber music, & minimalist composition into her heartbreakingly gorgeous bedroom pop. A 2017 feature in the Chicago Tribune explains, "After picking up a variety of musical styles and instruments  from guitar to piano to synths  she is eager to piece together a sound that is representative of her personal artistic vision.

There's Always Glimmer, Gia Margaret's self-produced debut album, will be released by Orindal Records on July 27, 2018.

"On the first single from her forthcoming debut album, Theres Always Glimmer, Gia Margaret looks deeply into the space that remains after a loved one leaves your life. Birthday is a gentle, mid-tempo rock song that couches the weight of its lyrics in lush electric guitar chords, gleaming synthesizer patches, and big, expressive drums, hitting the sweet spot between Imogen Heap and Broken Social Scene. In a voice that barely rises above a whisper, the Chicago-based singer/songwriter details a sudden, devastating breakup. I cant pretend I didn't know it/But then the night came and you were gone, she sings, her voice multi-tracked and produced in a way that makes the edges of her consonants pop. After the shock of the initial split, Margaret starts to preemptively mourn all the rituals she won't get to share again with her ex-partner. Wouldnt it be so strange/Not to be with you on your birthday? she asks on the chorus. Her vocal melody skews oddly optimistic, vaulting up toward the top of her range as if she's trying to put a positive spin on her loss. Birthday may be an emotionally moving breakup song, but it's the kind that lets you self-soothe in the midst of grief." -Sasha Geffen, Pitchfork
