4.0 out of 5 stars I am somewhat pleased with this music 29 Aug 2006
By The Last Person You'd Expect - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I was a little late in picking this one up and was thrilled that I did; it's a little bit better than standard indie rock, taking ideas from all over the map. On Etiquette, Casiotone's fourth album, Owen Ashworth uses 'clickier' style beats like the Postal Service, but tends to be a little more forceful and diverse, electronically, than that band. While the bands' name suggests an emphasis on this aspect-- the electronics-- the spotlight is concentrated more on Ashworth's lyrics and melody. This, I would compare much of it to Steven Malkmus (but not Pavement) or the Silver Jews. A laid-back, 'cool' singing style which on a couple of tracks, 'Bobby Malone' or 'Cold White Christmas,' echo The Hold Steady.

Etiquette is on the edgier end of the spectrum. Ashworth's strengths lie in his lyrics and the rich textures of background sound. The song-writing is usually very good, while forgettable in more than a few places. To add additional diversity to the record, there's a female vocalist on a couple of tracks, contributing a hint of twee-pop and a couple of short breaks from Ashworth's strong but sweet baritone.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definition of Indietronica 4 Jun 2007
By Stevens - Published on
Format:Audio CD
"Casiotone for the Painfully Alone is the musical alias of 28 year old American film school drop-out Owen Ashworth. Ashworth began making music in 1997 after he realized that song-making was a far more cost-effective means of storytelling than film-making." So begins Owen Ashworth's biography on the Casiotone for the Painfully Alone website.

Ashworth, whose unusual combination of narrative lyrics and battery-operated keyboard sounds, has reaffirmed the public's positive outlook on Lo-Fi indietronica and received only praise from fans, peers and press alike.

Full of haunting songs of solitude set to symphonic battery-operated opulence, this album isn't one to miss for anyone who swoons for mordant electro-pop sensations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Casiotone For The Painfully Alone ‎- Etiquette 13 Nov 2013
By scoundrel - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Casiotone for the Painfully Alone has always crafted very personal, very narrative songs, and ETIQUETTE is no different. In these short nuggets, the tone ranges from wistful ("New Years Kiss") to emo thrum ("Young Shields"). "Nashville Parthenon" has a upbeat synth-pop feel, with a pedal steel to indicate the Grand Ole Opry, while "Cold White Christmas" might be the most melancholy holiday song ever. Each of his songs are miniature stories of alienated 20-somethings, but that actually makes the more interesting. The bluesy dirge of "Don't They Have Payphones Wherever You've Been Last Night" carries its sadness in its quivering growl. A delightful, quirky album.
4.0 out of 5 stars cold white christmas 11 Mar 2008
By Ben W. Wright - Published on
Format:Audio CD
i saw this guy open for david bazan a few months ago and i was impressed with his set. while it may not be as good as david bazan (no one is in my humble opinion) this is a solid album with some great tracks. check out cold white christmas, bobby malone, and new years kiss. if you like those try and catch him live because believe me the live show is better.
