Casiotone for the painfully alone is the work of singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth and 'Vs. children' is his fifth studio album proper. The first thing I notice is the suspicious absence of Casio keyboards on the record. In fact I'm not hearing any electronic keyboard tones, what's up with that? I'm confused? Okay, so he's still tinkling the ivories but now we get proper piano and organ sounds and the songwriting seems to be maturing somewhat but no casio's!!! I'm not having that. So 'Vs. children' sounds like a country rock record sans the guitars and sounds far to mature for my liking. It kinda sounds like Jeffrey Lewis (i've just been reviewing the Junkyard record so i'm might be all muddled in my mind) due to the down to earth, self confessional songwriting approach and whimsical charm yet i prefer the lo-fi production of his earlier release's. Oh, i hear a casio (esq) electro beat on the excellently titled 'Man o' war'!! Ace. Don't abandon your namesake Mr. Ashworth, we like casiotone's!
