About the Event

Advance Base is the solo project of Chicago-based singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone). Using a two-handed arsenal of electric piano, Omnichord, samplers, effect pedals & drum machines, Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed ballads around his conversational baritone. In it's honest exploration of the human condition, the warm, electronic sound of Advance Base has been described as "lo-fi," and "weirdly uplifting". Advance Base is named after the Antarctic meteorological station & psychedelic death trap that nearly killed Admiral Richard E. Byrd during the winter of 1934.

Listen to samples and read a review in Stereogum of the latest release: Animal Companionship

Moon Racer takes her name from the winged lion who rules over an island haven for misfit toys in the 1964 stop-animation film, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. With the same loyal commitment to the weird and sentimental, Autumn E. creates fuzzy keyboard pop songs in her bedroom in Durham, North Carolina, leaning heavily on vintage Casios and Tascam 4-track cassette recorder.

“A dream-like exercise in mood and melody, a droopy-eyed blur of percussive loops, delicate vocals, and light tape hiss” 

-The Fader

STELLA KOLA is a poetic heroine's journey through dreamy shapeshifting soundscapes brought into fruition by Beverly Ketch (Bunwinkies) and Rob Thomas (Sunburned Hand of the Man).
