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.
The World Is In A Bad Fix Everywhere, an EP of early 20th century gospel music composed by Washington Phillips, was released June 25, 2013.

An EP of Magnetic Fields covers calledTomorrow's Homes Today was released later that year as a limited edition cassette, & went out of print almost immediately.

"Lisa/Liza is the artist moniker for one Liza Victoria, who has been releasing music as Lisa/Liza as far back as 2012. Based in Maine, Lisa/Liza’s music has always born a distinctly earthen acoustic texture. From debut EPKing, MEup through 2016’s pristine album Deserts of Youth,Barn Coat and beyond, the artist has consistently found beauty in the silences – those fleeting spaces in between guitar strums, when we’re taking a breath in rather than exhaling words." -Atwood Magazine
"Singer/songwriter Liza Victoria's dreamy, psychedelic folk fits in well with 2016's class of forward-thinking Cosmic Americana troubadours⁄ her haunting, imagistic dream logic is only beginning to reveal itself." -Pitchfork
The first little wings album was released in 1998, "EXPLAINS" comes out May 26th 2015 on Woodsist Records.
