Biography

The Dropzines is the latest smash Indie-Pop trio to come out of Pennsylvania. Dropzines’ Music can be described as an eclectic mix of savory Harmony-Indie Pop served up in bite-sized morsels. Although appealingly confectionary to the ear on first taste, there lies just beneath the pleasing candy veneer, a dark center composed of witticism and melancholia; and strewn throughout are the razor shards of sarcastic cynicism. All of which, promises to be audibly accessible and intellectually stimulating.

Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist, Shawn Stabley, brings to The Dropzines his checkered past of musical experiences on tap. Formerly of the now defunct New York City faction, The Most Sordid Pies, Shawn recorded the album, Grit & Sunshine along side producers John Siket (Sonic Youth, Phish, Yo La Tengo) and Kramer (Shimmy Disc Records), utilizing legendary rock recording facilities, Bearsville Studios and Power Station.

Accompanied by the distinct yet unorthodox bass guitar style of Tony Romanell and the beautifully paired vocal harmonies and percussion of Jason Kline, The Dropzines bring you their debut album. With a flair for brilliant 60’s harmonies laid atop ballads of angst, loss, solitude, and indifference, “Between Sheets and Walls” guarantees much more beneath the musical surface and from a fresh perspective.

Lyrics

Sad Tuesday

Written By: Shawn Stabley

I'm sick of so long
and on the phone long
all the road's long
didn't turn my phone on
switched the station
turned it around on me
yes she's proud of me
it's balsphemy, extreme

Another Sad Tuesday
Sad Tuesday
Sad For Me'cause it all washed out

and often times
there's things that
I would never do without

I took the slow ride
down to her waistline
and what I found
cost me my soul
and it means more
than you will ever know
but you've got to go
regrettably and so

Another Sad Tuesday
Sad Tuesday
Sad For Me it all washed out

and often times
those things I would rather do without

I'm sick of so long
and on the phonge long
all the road's long
didn't turn my phone on
and switched the station
turned it around on me
when she was proud of me
was blasphemy extreme
and if you want more
than you will ever know
you gotta go
regrettably and so

A Sad Tuesday
Sad Tuesday
Sad for me
Sad Tuesday
A Sad Tuesday
Sad Tuesday
Sad for me it all washed out

Creature Comfort

Written By: S. Stabley

Another night and I don't feel well
but not enough for her to tell
and I don't know what's going on

Another waning hour of early light
I couldn't tell you if it's day or night
but I should go home where she
and I live in creature comfort
like so few here can afford

Another day another weekend
it's been played out entirely
but once they're gone
there's only me
Of all the nightS and all the daylights
some of which are too obscure
so here we are and there she goes
in search of her creature comfort

like the ones that hit, almost made us quit
we couldn't surrender though I don't know why
for that's the life she needs
that's the life I leave
Of all the nights and all the daylights
some of which are too obscure
here we are and there she goes
in search of new creature comfort
like so few here can afford
oh where we're inside there,locked inside where
where it always breaks, it gave her tummy ache
I shouldn't resent her, though I don't know why
for that's the life she needs
that's the life I leave...

Lets Go Of You

Written By: Shawn A. Stabley

Something better should've come along
but nothing better took ahold of my arm
in that sweater you look safe and warm
forget the weather, concentrate although

You don't let go of it, Let Go
You won't let go of it, Let's Go
don't let go of it
It let's Go Of You

So Shine the light so I can see what's going on
there's half of something, her other half is gone
if it pleases someone, she can tag along
shit can that symphony, in the yard yessiree
You don't get over it, it looks bad
you won't get over it, real sad
don't let go of it
It let's Go of You

yeah, Well I'm not aware
or offer regards for me to stare
any old time that you want you'll say a prayer for me

Something better should've come along
but nothing better took ahold of my arm
in the sweater you look safe and warm
in the sweater you look safe and warm
in the sweater in the yard now,
You don't let go of it, Let Go
You won't let go of it, Let's Go
don't let go of it
It Lets Go Of You
