Casiotone For The Painfully Alone

The Cube welcomes back Owen Ashworth on his last ever tour as Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. Likening himself to Hank Williams with a decent Casio collection, Ashworth brings us a fuzzy, bleeping hybrid of folk & electronica, heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. Suitably uncluttered beats, melancholy drones and bittersweet melodies support baritone-laden vocals, narrating us through "wonderful fragments of fiction about half-missed opportunities and forgotten moments of happiness, the friends you had and lost, the sweet sorrow of getting older and getting on with life".

With support from Americana-inspired archaeo-futuristic one-man-band Robert Stillman, and Bristol's very own lo-fi popsters, I Know I Have No Collar.
