Release Notes:
Unearthly sounds whiz-and-whir from left channel to right, synth lines
gurgle upward like oxygen escaping a bottomless pool, melodic leads
strut, mystifying counter-melodies wrap around thoroughly catchy
choruses, hooks percolate and dig deep, and ethereal/avant vocal
arrangements deliver melodies that soar from the earth's crust to the
heavens. Welcome to The Otherly Opus, the ninth album from Tooth &
Nail's most creative and prolific band and brainchild of Ronnie Martin,
Joy Electric.

"I wanted to make something that combined all the stuff I've done over
the last six or seven years since The White Songbook [into] a magical
sounding record," he states. In addition to his usual Synthpop sound,
he charts a new direction with a confident wall of vocals. He simply
states, "I wanted to do a vocal album." By diminishing bass lines and
stripping beats to a minimalist-primitive essence, the songs are filled
with mood and mystery unlike any previous Joy Electric release. "The
title is sort of a nod to the old school Joy E kind of thing, outside
the norm, hence the word 'otherly'. So it's really pretentious
basically. Like they all are. Just continuing with the trend I guess,"
he says, laughing.

The Otherly Opus is the fifth and final installment of the Legacy
series of concept albums, but goes farther to eschew the genre's
bloated connotation. Martin explains, "I wanted to do a concept record
that was short. You think 'concept', you start thinking ten minute
epics. I said, "No, take all the ideas of that - the overblown vocals,
the bombastic titles - then put it in short songs. I thought it was an
interesting way to take it." Thus, the record is essentially two
mini-concept records merged together. The first five tracks comprise
The Otherly Opus, a collection of classic, early Joy Electric songs
(think 1996's, Old Wives Tales) and in Martin's words, "it's an
escapist magical fantasy kind of thing, a little on the personal side
and goes through these singular topics". The final five tracks comprise
The Memory Of Alpha, opulently dynamic songs which, according to
Martin, "deal with the fall of Adam and Eve, that antediluvian period
of biblical history."

A masterfully exquisite cavalcade of vocals, singing a one-word mantra
of the word 'otherly', starts the record. It is a resounding statement
of this new direction: integrating and emphasizing the prominence of
the vocal (some songs contain over fifty vocal tracks), and infusing
Martin's trademark sound to magnificent results. On the ridiculously
catchy "Colours In Dutch", the countless vocal tracks add a Lynchian
subconscious buzz. He plays it even more weirdly on the compelling, and
admittedly, over-the-top "The Memory Of Alpha" and "Red Will Dye These
Snows Of Silver", of which, he states was the "That's it" moment in the
recording process. The haunting "Ponderance Need Not Know" and
ambient-beauty of "A Glass To Count All The Hours" demonstrate how the
vocals-first mentality brings mood to his Pop.

From a technological perspective (something very dear to Martin and his
process), he exclusively used analog sequencers on this record. This
takes his self-imposed 'all analog' constraint to the next level.
"You're not really playing keyboard anymore, you're just setting knobs
to the pitch of the note, and then you're playing the sequencer to play
the part that you set. It's the most mechanical way, it's not very
songwriter oriented what-so-ever! It's the opposite of songwriting, but
I found a way of combining it with that." Doing so, he has created a
nearest-to-pure analog recording.

Over the last thirteen years, Joy Electric has released eight
full-length albums, eight EPs, three singles, three compilations, and
one DVD, each a collection of sheer classic pop songwriting and
experimental electronic construction. It's no secret that every record
Martin has created at his Electric Joy Toy Company is out to prove
something, to do something different, and to challenge not only the
listener, but also the creator. It's this long, enduring relationship
between the listener and the music maker that makes each Joy Electric
record essential listening. So when you first drop the virtual needle
on The Otherly Opus, the head-turning is inevitable. :)
