Ablebody “Sally Hot Jazz”

18 Jan 2013 — Parker Bruce


Christoph Hochheim, who used to be in one of my favorite bands of all time, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, as well as The Depreciation Guild, is putting out his first solo EP All My Everybody on January 29. This time around he records as Ablebody, and below you may listen to the first song from the EP, "Sally Hot Jazz". The drums, courtesy of Anton Hochheim, pounce, the synths dream a little dream of pinging (hence Hochheim’s Soundcloud descriptor, "Mere Tsorises and Dream-Pops"), the guitars are uncouth, and the title calls to mind Bob Fosse. Some of it even reminds me of Maria Minerva’s "Pirate’s Tale" – what a mash-up that would be! Check out Ablebody’s bandcamp over here.
