Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, the one-man band of Owen Ashworth, has long been a TSOI favorite. Owen and his battery of keyboards and tape loops have been quietly releasing a string of the best albums of the decade.
TSOI has gathered intel from high-ranking CTFTPA sources that a new singles album will be out in February and a new album of new material to follow in March. Currently CTFTPA is touring behind his new Town Topic EP which includes CTFTPA work to be included in a movie soundtrack. “Ice Cream Truck” included in its live form here is one such track. As usual the show was put on by Todd P in a lawless DIY fashion in a where unfettered indoor smoking is condoned and Busch Beer is sold out of coolers. Good times.
