Jonah w/ Far at Mercury Lounge in 2009 (more by Chloe Rice)
Jonah Matranga of Far, Onelinedrawing, New End Original, Gratitude, and who also has performs under his own name, has yet another project in the works. This one is a collaboration with Ian Love (Rival Schools, Cardia, Burn) and it's called I Is Another. The duo have launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for their upcoming EP. They write:
This isn't a project we're planning to put on a label or tour with or anything. It's just friends making stuff and wanting to share it with you. We'll keep in touch as we go, sending each song to you via download as we complete them. A clip from the first one that feels done is up there (thanks so much to Mel Upstart for putting the cool video clip together). Along with the downloads, depending on how much you chip in, you can get limited edition CDs, vinyl and all sorts of other stuff. As of now, we're planning on recording and releasing an EP of 6 tunes. If everyone chips in enough that we hit our goal so we can pay for everything, then for every $1800 that gets chipped in beyond that, we'll record and release another song, straight to you. We'll make as many as you want (seriously). Let's make good stuff happen!I Is Another have revealed one song from the project so far called "Prayed For You," that sounds like the kind of classic emo you'd expect from Jonah and Ian given their previous projects. You can download that track above, and below there's a trailer video for the EP which features a clip of the same song.
Thanks so much,
Ian & Jonah

Jonah Matranga (Onelinedrawing) played his second show in two days in BOTH event spaces at the eclectic Gershwin Hotel on Tuesday, November 11th. Joined by his old friend and past congtributor Ian Love (Rival Schools/Cardia), a drum machine, and an acoustic guitar, Jonah ran through solo material, covers, and songs from his-old-but-currently-reunited band Far. He also paused for a moment to reflect on the recent events with Deftones bassist Chi Cheng. Along the way Ian Love added some amazing effects-heavy guitar, reminiscient of recent Stars Of The Lid... adding tremendous depth and emotional (I did NOT say emo) power to his set. Partial setlist, beaucoup photos, and video of Jonah performing the Deftones' "Be Quiet And Drive", below...
