This is my new album! Pretty much couldn't be happier with it. Enjoy!
This is a re-recording of Visitor, an album that came out on Jade Tree in 2002, done in a very intimate, stripped-down way. I tried to get as close as I could to how it'd be in a club (I literally imagined playing to you as I sang), but with a really nice recording. I'd also love to hear your interpretations of the songs, so write to me anytime at http://jonahmatranga.com and I can send you the basic vocal and guitar tracks, with a tempo, so you can add instruments, sing with me, sing without me, whatever you like. I will happily share anything you come up with.
This is a covers album made with the input of hundreds of people, featuring unique versions of great songs by Bruce Springsteen, The Temptations, Alkaline Trio, The Monkees, Rural Alberta Advantage, Hum, Mazzy Star, Bob Dylan, Elliott Smith, Tom Waits, Tori Amos, The Beatles, John Francis, Pearl Jam, Deftones and Led Zeppelin. Download+CD and download+vinyl packages also available.
This is an album featuring performances by about 50 people around the world, most of whom have never met, along with the solo acoustic versions that started it all. The download comes with both versions of each tune; solo and with everyone. Download+CD and download+vinyl packages also available.
This is 35 b-sides, demos and acoustic versions from the 'And' recording sessions. I just put up some of my faves for listening to give you a sense of things, but you'll get everything with the download. You can also get the original CD with this download just for the cost of postage, see below. This album was so much fun to make (thanks to Ian Love forever) and it's still one of my favorites. It's nice to share the process with you. Enjoy.
This is a collection of tracks from random compilations and splits that I did over the years with The Juliana Theory, Sense Field, Rival Schools, Kevin Seconds, Frank Turner, Jimmy Eat World, Kepi, Anton Barbeau... and lots more. Download+vinyl packages also available.
I made this album over the course of a couple of years, singing and writing and drawing, taking pictures. The CD plays just like a regular CD, but when you put it in the computer, you can see all the stories and comics and who knows what else. One of my favorite ideas come true.
Some of my favorite songs recorded in various homemade ways. I love music so much. Enjoy!
The stuff that pretty much started it all solo-style. Still some of my favorite stuff I've made. 3 EPs on one album, with some extra stuff too.
