Casiotone FTPA. Oh!... the sound of one lovelorn bearded fellow & his lo-fi acoustic/electro pop gems. Not much new to say about this man as I seem to get every fucking release he does just about & I've already waxed lyrical about how fond I am of his stuff! This latest 'Advance Base Battery Life' is a compilation of obscure singles, split sides & covers, that sorta thang. The second song 'Lesley Gore on the T.A.M.I show', sung by Jenny Herbinson, is just the most delightful thing i've heard this month, the prettiest, simple chord changes & the cutest, saddest vocal I could imagine, all bathed in this detached glow of heartfelt DIY genius. There's TWO Brucie Springsteeenie covers & his oddball deconstruction of Paul Simon's 'Graceland' to contend with, plus oodles of other quirky, melody rich tunes to make you feel all woozy & comforted. For such a simple set up, he has a very unique & personable sound - Wurlitzer organ in a wheelie bin wrapped in a crotcheted blanket - that you kind of treasure, like precious photos. Or a favourite pair of socks. He's that kind of guy. I reckon he's happier than he used to be because these songs radiate even more warmth through melancholia than before! CD/LP on the esteemed Tomlab, home of the talented & sideways inclined!
