About the Artists:

Advance Base (Chicago, IL):

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."

The debut Advance Base album, A Shut-In's Prayer, was released in 2012, & was one of MOJO Magazine's favorite albums of the year. PopMatters named Nephew in the Wild the #1 Indie Pop Album of 2015.

Animal Companionship, the third & most recent album by Advance Base, was released September 21, 2018 by Run For Cover Records / Orindal Records. GoldFlakePaint & Various Small Flames both listed Animal Companionship among their favorite albums of 2018.

Advance Base is named after the Antarctic meteorological station & psychedelic death trap that nearly killed Admiral Richard E. Byrd during the winter of 1934.

Karima Walker (Tucson, AZ):

“With her uncanny Americana, Walker’s experimental inclinations have allowed her to explore some previously un-plumbed liminal space on the horizon, somewhere between sand and sky.” - Pitchfork

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.

Dan Wriggins (Philadelphia, PE):

Dan Wriggins is a Philadelphia-based songwriter, musician, and poet. He grew up in the town of Yarmouth, Maine, and on Islesford, a small island community near Bar Harbor. In high school, he started playing piano and guitar, and met bandmates Michael Cormier and Peter Gill. He worked on lobster fishing boats before moving to Philadelphia and starting the alt-country band Friendship in 2015, with whom he has toured the US and Canada extensively. He lives and sometimes tours with his dog, Roy.

The EP “Mr. Chill” is Wriggins’ debut release under his own name. Michael Cormier’s minimal production is an open frame; quiet drums in a big room, classical guitar, and melodic organ lift Wriggins’ prose-poem lyrics. His solemn, wounded delivery makes lines like “you trust your gut/and your gut lies” and “read my salty lips/no new love” into deadly serious jokes. Title notwithstanding, “Mr. Chill” isn’t great background music - it’s rich and powerful, demanding attention as a profoundly moving and original work.

moms talk (Victoria, BC):

moms talk is a small collaborative project led by Evan Monroe that embraces the notion that no two performances will be the same. Songs written by Evan are passed through his friends and collaborators to layer texture and warmth into a simple but wide architecture.
