it's really cool how he uses his vocals like another instrument



well he's got two "eras" I suppose. Everything before the White Songbook is more poppy and the lyrics are more accessible. Everything after is generally more complicated and the lyrics not accesible. If you want to start with the old stuff, get Robot Rock. If you want to start within the past 7 years, go with the Otherly Opus or Hello, Mannequin. A few months ago I finally completed purchasing the complete discography (well minus one of the newer EPs or two)



yeah I bought it not too long after it came out. Really good stuff.
Do you have Robot Rock? I can't find my copy to put on my laptop and it's driving me mad.

What exactly is Ronald of Orange?

yeah I do. You can get it on amazon for pretty cheap I think. Ronald of Orange is this side project he did this past winter. It's less electronic than JE. Still just him I think. It was released by Velvet Blue Music.

Ronald of Orange is awesome as well. It's very stripped down and raw. Love it.

yeah I wonder when it's coming out. Ronnie hasn't kept up very well with updates this summer. I remember a loooong time ago he did a cover of Adam's Song that never got released. Apparently it's somewhere in T&N's vault.

I remember that too, I think that was about the time Tick Tock Treasury had just been released. I'm glad T&N still keeps JE on the roster, and they seem to let him do whatever he wants...the other day I started watching the old Tooth and Nail Videography dvd and..wow, the type of music they seemed to sign then and the type of music they sign now..sure is different. oh well.

I only know who half those songs are by. That was a terrible sentence. Oh well. Surprised neither JE's site nor the myspace has anything about this. Well not really, they haven't updated any news/blogs in forever

  1. 1,2,3,4 (Feist)
  2. Viva La Vida (Coldplay)
  3. I Miss You (Blink 182)
  4. Falling Slowly (Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova)
  5. When You Were Young (The Killers)
  6. Somewhere Only We Know (Keane)
  7. It Ends Tonight (All American Rejects...I guess)
  8. Decode (Paramore?!)
  9. Say It Right (Nelly Furtado)
    Some really odd choices for covers...for some reason I was expecting more new wave stuff. and..not so much the AAR and Paramore. Oh well, either way I'll be picking it up on the release date.

I've finally gotten around to Joy Electric... Ronnie Martin is the man.

That's an interesting group of songs. I look forward to his rendition of "Viva la Vida."
