Awwwwwww. Owen Ashworth, the man behind the brainy and moody Chicago synthy-indie outfit Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, is not favoring KC (or Lawrence or anywhere else in KS or MO, for that matter) on his upcoming summer tour. But at least we get some new music to console us in our grief.
CFTPA has two releases out this summer. The first, Advance Base Battery Life, is a collection of 7-inch split-singles and compilation tracks released between 2004 and 2007, most of which have never before been on CD. The second is Vs. Children, CFTPA's fifth studio album. Grab a sweet-sounding track from each below, courtesy of Team Clermont.
