ADVANCE BASE- Live at Home ORD-56

CD release date: February 26, 2021
Vinyl release date: April 23, 2021

The last Advance Base show in front of a live audience was in Portland, Oregon on March 11, 2020, four days into a west coast tour with Claire Cronin & Ruth Garbus. The following day, the COVID-19 pandemic overwhelmed the public consciousness, my professional life as a touring musician ended, & I began the long drive back home to Oak Park, Illinois, where I’ve sheltered in place with my wife & kids ever since. Occasionally, I’ve broadcast live sets over the internet from my basement rehearsal space as a means to keep myself in practice & to maintain a connection to the outside world. The songs on this album were collected from those livestream broadcasts. I've included three songs from each of the three Advance Base “studio” albums, plus three songs from my former music project, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. I don’t know if or when I’ll be able to tour again, but I’m grateful to have these live versions recorded as a document of what an Advance Base show sounded like in 2020. Thanks for listening.
