Two Orindal Records label mates are slated to hit Buffalo tonight. Advance Base and Karima Walker both bring their own unique brands of lo-fi pop to Mohawk Place. Joining them will be two local solo acts, Lara Buckley and Matt Script.
Headlining the show is Chicago-based act Advance Base, the solo project of former Casiotone for the Painfully Alone member Owen Ashworth. Still riding the wave of his well-received record Nephew in the Wild, Ashworth’s sound is layered an array of electronic keyboards, employing minimalist arrangements that pair well with his heavy-hearted, soul-baring lyricism. Tucson singer-songwriter Karima Walker offers up an ambient and experimental kind of folk music, combining traditional folk melodies with tape loops and samples.
Sound collage artist Lara Buckley opens the show, followed by loop-machine singer-songwriter Matt Script. Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. Tickets are $10 at the door.
