Advance Base + Karima Walker
Advance Base is the melancholic synth pop 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.”
Tucson, Arizona interdisciplinary artist Karima Walker walks a line between two worlds. Aside from her long resume of collaborative work with artists in the diverse fields of dance, sculpture, film, photography and creative non-fiction, Walker has long nurtured a duality within her work as a musician, developing her own sonic language as a sound designer in tandem with her craft as a singer/songwriter. The polarity within Walker’s music has never been so articulately explored, or graced with as much intention, as on her 2021 album, Waking the Dreaming Body, which was featured on “best albums of the year” lists from Gorilla Vs Bear, Goldflakepaint, For the Rabbits, Deepest Currents, Hanif Abdurraqib & more.
Orindal Records recording artists Advance Base (Chicago, IL) & Karima Walker (Tucson, AZ) bring their electronic, cosmic Americana to the UK for a night of intimate & immersive solo sets featuring gentle synthesizers, sleepy drum loops, ambient field recordings, psychedelic visuals & folk-style vocals. Advance Base is the melancholic story song project of Owen Ashworth (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone), making their much anticipated return to the UK following the release of 2020’s Live at Home & 2021’s Wall of Tears & Other Songs I Didn’t Write. Singer, sound designer & filmmaker Karima Walker makes her UK debut following the critical acclaim of her 2021 folk/ambient album Waking the Dreaming Body (co-released by Keeled Scales), featured on best of the year lists by GoldFlakePaint, Gorilla Vs. Bear, For the Rabbits & more.
