ONELINEDRAWING’S The Volunteers LP/CD (JT1093) finally hits stores today and after the release of 2002’s Visitor, Jonah Matranga returns with his strongest record to date. Filled with aching melodies, heart wrenching lyrics, and a distinctively more strident set list – The Volunteers finds Matranga honing in on the songwriter his many supporters have seen him for all along. As potent as it is touching, this record finally merges the spirit of ONELINEDRAWING’S earnest and energetic live show with a recording that truly captures what makes Matranga such a fan-favorite, gig after sweaty gig.
The disc includes liner notes by Geoff Rickly (Thursday) and features an enhanced portion that contains demo versions of album tracks as well as additional liner notes written by Matranga himself.
