Album Review

Onelinedrawing is ostensibly a solo project for former Far vocalist and leader Jonah Matranga. The acoustic leanings of the project coupled with his highly emotive subjects — lead track "Um..." bitterly laments his divorce by softly intoning "I'm so sorry for my dreams," while "But It Was Close" presents anguished regret over a simple acoustic guitar — will cause some to immediately think of Dashboard Confessional. They wouldn't be that inaccurate either. A duo of more upbeat material — the quirky, synth-augmented "Smile," which wouldn't be out of place on a Posies platter, and the slightly more dynamic "Bitte Ein Kuss," which namechecks Carl Yastrzemski and coins the phrase "In the bed disco" as a euphemism for sex — betray his indie-pop roots; but make no mistake, Visitor is a mostly unplugged-sounding disc that fits into a coffeehouse far more complacently than a rock club. ~ Brian O'Neill, Rovi
