Download: Casiotone for the Painfully Alone - ""Optimist vs. The Silent Alarm (When The Saints Go Marching In)"
Though he's known primarily for making intimate synth-pop that operates barely above a whisper, Chicago-based Casiotone for the Painfully Alone sounds like he's ready to get out of the bedroom setting that dominated his previous work and move on to bigger things. "Optimist...", the first single from his upcoming new album of original material, Vs. Children, delves into natural piano sounds, and even a little bit of old fashioned ragtime. Listen to it at the top of the post.
