Jonah Matranga


Jona Matranga is Far/Onelinedrawing/New End Original. I haven't heard much about him recently, but I used to absolutely adore his music while I was in high school. The weirdest part is that these bands are so different. Far is a post-rock'ish type band whose riffs he wailed along to, Onelinedrawing is a mostly solo act with him and his geetar, and New End Original is largely a power-pop band. They all are above average bands, with Far being my favorite by leaps and bounds. I hope he comes up with some new stuff one of these days.

Far - Water and Solutions

Far - I Like It

Far - Wear It so Well

Onelinedrawing - Better Than This

Onelinedrawing - 14 to 41

New End Original - Lukewarm

New End Original - #1 Defender

He just put out some odds and ends album on Equal Vision, and he was in a band called Graditude, that was really poppy, but they had some great songs.

Hi everyone, just wann let you know that I have released JONAH MATRANGA's latest album "And" on my label in Germany on CD and on vinyl. The vinyl took a while, but it was definitely worth waiting: The vinyl records look so beautiful! This is a limited edition of 200 orange colored vinyl and 295 black vinyl copies, as always hand numbered and delivered in a safety envelope. We have also put out IAN LOVE's solo record (you might remember him from RIVAL SCHOOLS, DIE 116 and BURN) and will release the album of HOUSE & PARISH (it's people ftom THE PROMISE RING, TEXAS IS THE REASON, THE GLORIA RECORD and THE LOVE SCENE), both records also as limited vinyl editions of course, also including bonus tracks not available anywhere else. If you are interested, please feel free to have a look at our website http://www.arcticrodeorecordings.com. Thank you.
