My Grandfather, The Cubist [edit]
by Joy Electric | Genre: Electronic/Dance | Release Date: May 27, 2008
 

2007’s majestic “The Otherly Opus” ended Joy Electric’s acclaimed fivepart 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 “...Opus”. Focusing on themes of art, history and Martin’s personal understanding of both, “....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.

Great for any mood! | Posted November 15, 2008
I love this cd. It takes a while to get used to it and like all the songs but once you listen to it once or twice its amazing! I like to listen to it when i get up in the morning because its not to crazy for just waking up and not too chill that it makes me want to go back to sleep.

The music makes you happpy at anytime. it can definatly affect your mood for the better!
