Ablebody, the solo project of Christoph Hochheim—formerly of Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and The Depreciation Guild—has released the music video for “Sally Hot Jazz” off his 2013 EP, All My Everybody. The clip, directed by Martha Naranjo Sandoval, finds Hochheim contemplating why “you always sleep with all the lights on/the blinds drawn with nothing to hide from,” from behind shadows and cosmic projections.
Hochheim has been releasing music under the Ablebody moniker since 2011 and has succeeded in creating his own unique confection of melancholy-drenched synth-pop oozing with lo-fi fuzziness. “Sally Hot Jazz” is replete with cymbal-filled drumming (played by Hochheim’s twin brother Anton) and reverb-muffled vocals that will have listeners wondering if they’ve been awake for days.
