Robert Rackley If the Depreciation Guild breaking up is what it took to bring us the Ice Choir and Ablebody, I'm finally willing to accept that breakup. This is a lovely release with lush atmospherics and nuggets of AM gold. Favorite track: Marianne.

about

Ablebody Los Angeles, California

contact: headsweredancing@gmail.com

Drawing from the raw grandeur of the 60’s, the melodicism of soft 70s pop & the sophisticated side of romantic 80s synthpop, Ablebody (LA-based duo comprised of identical twins Christoph & Anton Hochheim) stand suspended between decades, students of the past but far from retro fetishists.

‘Adult Contemporaries' LP will be released by Lolipop Records on 10/14

Track Name: Backseat Heart
you can't fake it
a common thread
you don't make your girly bed

she can't hide it
a static stare
heavy eyelids moving castles in the air

got me up and down just say
you got the backseat
of my heart

knock me up and down just say
keep me up now
and watch it fade away

he don't listen
he don't care
he can't stand your woolly bear

her forgiveness
none to spare
idle figures moving backwards down the stairs

can't find a better way
to mirror off your gamma rays
i can't find a better way
but i'm not going to lose your head

can't find a better way
and i can tell you're going to cry

got me up and down just say
you got the backseat
of my heart

knock me up and down just say
keep me up now
and watch it fade away
Track Name: After Hours
outside
break the cycle
take your hangups in stride

outside
where the lights are autumn grey and unkind

is this right?
i just can't decide
don't fear your heart
cast your doubt aside

is this right?
i just can't decide
don't fear your heart

i can't tell what you represent

outside
break the cycle
don’t go fearing your time

is this right?
i just can't decide
don't fear your heart
cast your doubt aside

is this right?
i just can't decide
don't fear your heart

i can't tell what you represent
Track Name: Gaucho
jason
you said you learned your lesson
but you lost your head and sensibility

jason
a tricky situation
but i can’t work out what your facility's about

psycho
stay a night
gaucho
starlight

jason
supplies the medication
that'll put your head on disability

jason
quick to condemnation
when your pencil lead spouts your obscenities and doubt

jason
they said he left the station
but it's been some time since i've last heard from him

jason
he's in the river basin

psycho
stay a night
gaucho
starlight
(one more night)
Track Name: Powder Blue
wake up
tone down your denial
please calm it down down down

you're home now
you're late on arrival
don't let her down down down you're gone

you're quick to turn away
too resolute to stay
but you like him oh you do
and your house is on the way
but you know there's hell to pay

my powder blue
Track Name: The Sun, A Small Star
the sun a small star
it's not by them where my heart lies
i lie here with you but you're not there when i open my eyes

the sun a small star
i gave you everything that's not much
unto the dark sky
i'm looking too can almost touch

the sun a small star
i'll dream forevermore
the shining bright star
it's you then that i adore

the sun a small star
the sun a small star
the sun a small star

Track Name: Heart Keep
you'll stay in my heart
but i won’t set you on the nightstand
and even out your pleated lines

you say that it's hard
but i can tell you just the opposite
just to get you off of it

no your gleaming eyes don't show
what you were hoping for
you leave without your evil eye
i’ve seen that look before

oh and i got nowhere to go
new york city lights
will blind you from yourself

how wrong was i?
how long's the cycle?

heal yourself

you'll stay in my heart
but i can't tell you what you want from me
or how it ought to be

oh you're pounding at the door
gleaming like before
you leave without your hair done up
and nothing left to throw

oh and i got nowhere to go
new york city's nice but so is mexico

how wrong was i?
how long's the cycle?

heal yourself
Track Name: Marianne
why won’t you sleep?
you're one to say
but no learned man
could offer marianne a thing

not to be stayed
and quick to turn away
an old worn out refrain
speaks all the same

your eyes hard as lead
your will to get lost in heaven or head down

i'm waiting with the lights turned on
head beneath the ground (now)

why won't you say?
it's all just the same
split at the seams
and stiffer than a queen

your thoughts
best left unsaid then quickly put to bed
she said
it's easy time for me
please let me be

i thought you should know

you just say there's no good reason to be uptight
and the way you show affection isn't right

can't you offer any help?
any other way out
any other way out
any other way out
any other way to come and go...
Track Name: One Dime A Day
you pay no mind
others split and pass you by
spend your love one dime a day
but i can’t start to blame you

you say you’ll find
a head that’s just as strong as mine
all the things that i could say
but i can’t bare to mend you

you say you’ll find
time will always pass you by
keep your head and walk away
and this could last a lifetime
Track Name: Say What You Will
say what you want
but you don't say much

say what you want
i don't say anything

say what you will
with a push and a shove

gone inside your head

say what you want
but you don't say much

say what you want
i don't say anything

try but you know
that it don’t mean much

gone inside your head

say what you want
but you don't say much

say what you want
i don't say anything

claim to yourself
that you care too much

gone inside your head

say what you want
but you don't say much

say what you want
but i feel your touch

try but you know
that it's never enough

gone inside your head

sit back when you’re pulling away
try to keep your head down
certain of what she said

talk back when he’s trying to say
that you’ve got to turn down
going inside your head

sit back when you’re going away
try to keep your chin up
certain of what she said

turn down cause you’re making your way back home
Track Name: Send Me A Letter [feat. Sean Nicholas Savage]
silence of the night
deaf and forgiving

she’s got madness in her eyes
you’ve got it made

the faceless passerby
slight what he’s saying

you hear laughter in the light
a senseless refrain

but i can’t say a word
tracing thoughts in the air
your intentions are clear
but i don't see why you care at all

you could send me a letter
that's addressed to where you want to be

she could swim if you let her
you drift down when i come up to breathe

silence of the night
stale and dismaying
your heart dampens in the light
and warms in the shade

but i can't say a word
tracing thoughts in the air
your intentions are clear
but i don't see why you care at all

you could send me a letter
that's addressed to where you want to be

she could swim if you let her
you drift down when i come up to breathe
Track Name: Wayside Glow
i won't wait for you to arrive
hold out for an old reply

i won’t sleep with one shuttered eye
you’ll dream in her wayside glow

you float down and land on your side
hard earned with a lot to show

beat your head and count out of time
you'll learn how to let things go
