::Flossless Proudly Presents:: 


Advance Base is the melancholic soft rock recording project of Chicago, IL 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. The warm, electronic sound of Advance

Base has been described as "lo-fi," "depressed" & "weirdly uplifting."

"A Raymond Carver short story collection set to music by a Joan of Arc-era OMD" - MOJO Magazine

Karima Walker began releasing simple pastorals around a half decade ago, but quickly her songs morphed into something stranger. Inspired by her discovery of boundary-pushing composers like Éliane Radigue and Pauline Oliveros, she’s taken to fusing her structured folk songs with abstract sound art. It’s something others have attempted before—think Will Oldham’s recent collaboration with the drone duo Bitchin Bajas or some of Charalambides’ warped spirituals—but this Arizona-based songwriter’s fusion feels particularly alien. Unearthly drones collide with slowly scrawled acoustics. Electronics overwhelm spectral hymns. Looped vocals and slivered field recordings lend an unsettled feeling to her work, which sounds born both of earth and stratosphere, here and hereafter.
