"CFTPA is songs made up, sung and played by Owen Ashworth. His first release on Tomlab under the title Pocket Symphonies for Lonesome Subway Cars has gained a lot of attention in the alternative press with an endless list of references ranging from Moldy Peaches, Mountain Goats, Smog, Silver Jews, Young Marble Giants to Will Oldham. Casiotone for the Painfully Alone's self released debut album, Answering Machine Music that has been hard to find previously is now available in an expanded version. A series of musical answering machine messages disguised as pop songs. Recorded in 1999 on 4-tracks, answering machines, and boom boxes and played entirely on swap meet and thrift store bought miniature keyboards, it just may be the best battery-powered pop record you've ever heard."
