After Hours with Ablebody - An Interview

Abel Boynton é a mente por trás do Ableboby.

Pense em Prefab Sprout, pense em Aztec Camera, pense em Pulp, pense em música pop perfeita, dançante, elegante, sofisticada e ainda com nuances de dreampop pitadas de shoegaze, pois é, o resultado desta equação é o Ablebody.

Para ouvir e dançar e se apaixonar até dizer chega.

***** Interview with Ablebody *****

Q. When did Ablebody start? tell us about the history...
Ablebody’s just the most recent moniker for songs i’m putting out into the world, suppose i started using the name in 2011 when i put some demos/remixes/covers up online but i’ve been writing music since I started playing guitar when I was 13-14..mostly ambient soundscapey things back then, wasn’t too keen on pop music till i got older and softened up a bit

Q: What are your influences?
I hope it’s more of a what than a who with us but i’m into sounds that are kinda open and jazzy with plenty of wiggle room, melodically speaking. i like attitudes that are tender and uninhibited; musicianship is fine if it comes from a genuine place but amateurs seem to know how to better communicate their sentiments, less to prove musically maybe i dunno

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
In no particular order:
dionne warwick - here i am,
the reels - beautiful,
sean nicholas savage - bermuda waterfall,
prefab sprout - steve mcqueen,
ariel pink’s haunted graffiti - the doldrums

Q. How do you feel playing live?
It’s fun especially now that we’re a 4 piece band..writing’s so solitary so it’s nice to get together with the boys and rearrange the songs, open em up a bit and jam it out a lil more than i’m comfortable doing on my own

Q. How do you describe Ablebody sounds?
Lil crispy, lil fuzzy, like a honeycrisp apple that’s gone a bit soft

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Always different but the record we just finished up was recorded/produced by kenny gilmore (ariel pink’s haunted graffiti) in less than a month in his parent’s garage. he has a nice lil drum booth/studio where they recorded the last 3 ariel pink records, just treated it like a job and put in maybe 8 hrs a day, cranked it out for better or for worse, think it turned out pretty good can’t tell anymore

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Sean nicholas savage, king cyst, regal degal, jerry paper, bibby gix, pomar

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I lovee doing covers, done many over the years but just did a slapp happy cover last nite that i’m feelin. been playing a song by the servants live for a few years now, might put it on the record

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Keep on keeping on, be less guarded and share more with less tinkering on my end

Q: Any parting words? Thanks
Do you babe x
