Description of My Grandfather, The Cubist by Joy Electric
2007's majestic The Otherly Opus ended Joy Electric's acclaimed five-part Legacy Series with Ronnie Martin's trademark synthetics. A year later, Martin returns with the shockingly sparse My Grandfather, the Cubist. Stripped down to its barest essentials, Martin has taken a brave departure into stark minimalism following the lush abundance of The Otherly Opus.
Focusing on themes of art, history and Martin's personal understanding of both, My Grandfather, The Cubist delivers a new perspective on Joy Electric's original idea of "songwriting and synthesizers only" approach. Martin's dazzling array of synthetic effects have now been pulled back to make way for sounds so precise, vocals so bare and honest. These songs are melodic masterpieces, showcasing once again that Joy Electric is second to none when it comes to writing memorable tunes coupled with interesting and obscure themes. My Grandfather, the Cubist succeeds in starting Joy Electric down a new path, while still keeping those essential, original elements built upon for years, intact.
