New Macie Stewart single & video: "Maya, Please" Posted 18 Jul 2022


Photo credit: Ash Dye

Chicago singer, songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Macie Stewart (she/they) returns with “Maya, Please,” their first single/video since their debut album, Mouth Full of Glass, released last year via Orindal Records. Following the same sonic path as Mouth Full of Glass’s avante chamber folk, “Maya, Please” is a tender morsel of meditative acoustic balladry, featuring fingerstyle guitar, understated vocals and lushly-arranged strings, all performed by Stewart. The accompanying animated video was drawn and directed by Izzy Vasquez.

From Stewart:
"This song moves in and out of internal and external experience, all revolving around forgiveness. It is a conversation being had inside yourself asking for forgiveness, and ultimately finding the ability to forgive yourself. I wrote the strings at home and recorded them at Fox Hall with Dorian Gehring."

"Maya, Please" is available to stream & purchase from Bandcamp.

Cass McCombs- Heartmind cassette Posted 15 Jun 2022

On August 19, Orindal Records will release the cassette edition of our old friend Cass McCombs' excellent new album, Heartmind.

On Heartmind, Cass McCombs enters the double-digit-album phase of his career, a quantitatively rarified place for any songwriter; rarer still, though, is the fact that he does not yet seem to have settled into a qualitative sound or pattern, of singing the same thought twice (or perhaps even once).

Heartmind cassettes feature a metallic silver imprint & a 7-panel, full color foldout j-card featuring complete album lyrics & credits. Tapes will ship on or before the August 19 release date & can be pre-ordered HERE.

CDs, LPs & digital downloads of Heartmind are available from ANTI- Records.

demos by Karima Walker is out now! Posted 01 Apr 2022

demos, the new EP by Karima Walker, is out today!

From For the Rabbits' review of demos:
"While the concept of a demo version can sometimes feel like seeing something uncooked, here it feels like watching Karima put the pieces together of a particularly fiendish puzzle as you second-guess where the sketches might end up in the stunning finished product that was Waking The Dreaming Body. Take How It Falls Apart, while it feels loosely familiar you certainly couldn’t tie it to a specific track on the final record. The track was inspired by memories of being a long-distance runner when Karima was in high school, as Karima recalls, she, “would go whole miles spelling this word, e-s-t-c-e-q-u-e…something about the rhythm of this word would just kinda fit with how my body was moving”. This jogging mantra became a way of, “mapping a landscape” and the looping pattern became the base rhythm of the song. From that physical place, Karima seems to almost ground herself, allowing her true thoughts to pour forth, as she questions everything she’s known up until this point, “everything comes from god’s own hand, a little sweeter than I can stand. Knew the story thirty years ago, conversation was a sinking stone, fraying edges of what we know”. There’s something disarmingly intimate about this recording as if we’re being invited to peek behind the curtain, see the whirring cogs, the inflating lungs, the fizzing synapses that make up a perfectly complex thought process, it’s unusual and beautiful all at once, from this most special of talents you’ll quickly learn to expect nothing less."

Karima Walker & Advance Base postpone UK tour, announce US west coast tour with Claire Cronin & share new music Posted 31 Mar 2022


Karima Walker & Advance Base have made the difficult decision to postpone the April UK tour. Here's a statement from Advance Base's Owen Ashworth:

With the current levels of COVID infections in England & Scotland, we just don't think it's the right time to travel overseas & perform the kinds of shows that we've worked so hard to prepare. So, in the interest of our health & yours, we're coordinating with venues & promoters to reschedule our UK dates for August & September, with the hopes that COVID numbers will be at a more manageable level by the time we return.

All of the dates that have already been rescheduled are listed below. If you'd already purchased tickets for our April shows at any of these venues, your tickets will be valid for the rescheduled dates. Our rescheduled Oxford show has been moved from Fusion Arts to The Library, but Fusion Arts tickets are still valid for the new venue.

Advance Base & Karima Walker
August/September 2022 UK Tour

Aug 28, 2022- Manchester, UK @ Gulliver's
Aug 29, 2022- Glasgow, UK @ The Hug & Pint

Sept 05, 2022- Bristol, UK @ Cube Cinema
Sept 06, 2022- Oxford, UK @ The Library (Moved from Fusion Arts)

We're still working to confirm new dates for Edinburgh, Brighton & Hull. Updates will be posted at orindal.limitedrun.com/pages/tour-dates as soon as we have more information to share.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule a Hastings show through the same ticket vendor. If you purchased tickets for Hastings, or if you purchased tickets for any other show but are unable to attend the new date, email advancebase@gmail.com & I'll get you in touch with the ticket sellers to ensure that your money is refunded.

I'm truly sorry for any inconvenience the postponed dates may cause. Postponing our tour has proven to be a costly & time consuming undertaking, & Karima & I did not take the decision lightly. Regardless, we're still pretty sad about postponing our visit to the UK. We hope to see you in August & September.


Some news that we're happy to report:

Karima Walker, Advance Base & Claire Cronin are touring the West Coast off the US in May!

As always, you'll find ticket links at orindal.limitedrun.com/pages/tour-dates.


To mark the announcement, Advance Base released a new song called "Little Sable Point Lighthouse". It's available now from Bandcamp.

Karima Walker's new EP, demos, is out tomorrow (April 1). Read For the Rabbit's preview HERE.

Listen to "how it falls apart" from Karima Walker's forthcoming EP, demos Posted 21 Mar 2022


"how it falls apart" is the first single from demos, a new EP by Tucson, AZ singer, songwriter & sound designer Karima Walker. On demos, Karima Walker shares early, home-recorded versions of songs from her critically acclaimed 2021 folk/ambient album Waking the Dreaming Body, alongside illuminating sketches and ambient pieces. The demo versions of “Softer,” “Window I” and “Reconstellated” feature alternate lyrics and intimate acoustic arrangements that highlight the power of Walker’s voice and musicianship, while ambient pieces like "thunder interlude" and "earth into air" plumb deeper depths of tension.

Mowing the Leaves Instead of Piling 'em Up by Wednesday is out today! Posted 11 Mar 2022

Wednesday's new covers collection, Mowing the Leaves Instead of Piling 'em Up, is out today on limited edition cassette & digital formats!

Here's what the critics have to say:

"Back in January, Wednesday showed off their country bona fides with a trio of covers for Aquarium Drunkard, songs by Roger Miller and Drive-By Truckers and, best of all, a quivering yet towering take on Gary Stewart’s brilliant “She’s Acting Single (I’m Drinking Doubles).” Those songs all appear on Mowing The Leaves Instead Of Piling ‘Em Up, the band’s new covers LP out today. So do songs originally recorded by Smashing Pumpkins, Vic Chesnutt, Medicine, Chris Bell, Hotline TNT, and Greg Sage. As they did with Edie Brickell’s “Ghost Of A Dog” at the end of Twin Plagues, Wednesday make these tunes their own. If you like noisy melodic guitar music with a bit of twang in it, this stuff is crack." - Stereogum

"Given that the songs range from a pair of country classics, to latter day Americana, to more mainstream alternative rock, the album primarily serves as a further sampler of what Wednesday does right. Namely putting together melodic song structures slathered over with more than a fair share of feedback and an off-handed charm courtesy of Hartzman’s vocals." - Under the Radar

Purchase Mowing the Leaves Instead of Piling 'em Up on cassette & digital formats HERE. You can also purchase cassettes in special-priced bundles with other Wednesday cassettes & color vinyl LPs HERE.

Wednesday kick off their US tour tonight with a sold out show at Static Age in Asheville, NC!
