Casiotone For The Painfully Alone

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone is the lo-fi solo project of Owen Ashworth, a Portland-based songwriter who mixes sensitive Bright Eyes-styled balladry with Atom & His Package battery-operated antics. His weapons of choice are the Casio SK-1 and several hot rod Casiotones, while his lyrics are a coy-edged blend of Stephin Merritt's sarcasm and the Mountain Goats' earnestness. Ashworth released his first recording, 1999's Answering Machine Music: A Brief Album in Twelve Parts -- loosely a concept album of clever musical voicemails -- on his own label, Cassingle USA. Some of the tracks, including "Theme from David Hanna," were first recorded into his machine. Pocket Symphonies for Lonesome Subway Cars followed in 2001 on the Tomlab label and featured several "real" instruments, including cello and drums. Twinkle Echo arrived in 2003, and 2006's Etiquette expanded Ashworth's sound even further by adding more analog instruments. While remixing songs for the likes of Dudley Benson and Headlights, Ashworth found time to continue his work with Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, whose fifth album (the diverse Vs. Children) arrived in early 2009. ~ Daphne GA Carr, Rovi

i love you, too creedance... .
@michelle - that blend of humor and hurt is exactly what i appreciate about this as well. some of the songs are so depressing but still somehow retain that silver lining and hope, its awesome
...but there are no moments worthy without my love by my side. All else is a curse.
Portland haze and "there". This is unique and worth the ear-time alone, as we all are, better off anyway...
Saw Owen in Portland, OR, in the hottest basement venue ever, he was sweating bullets all over his equipment, but still rocked the house down!
Good stuff
so nice to find others who can appreciate this. i love this very much...so sweet, and it's so quirky, funny and sad all at once, and despite its simplicity, it's absolutely mesmerizing!
nope
I love everything this guy does.
yep
his music is awe inspiring to me. the fact that he can create his great heartfilled music with a casio is beyond amazing.
