According to Pitchfork, Serengeti makes thrilling weird rap. His last releases include AjaiGentle Fall and most recently a collaboration with Jenny Lewis.

Advance Base is the solo 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.
