Jonah Matranga released another album this year, Me And You Are Two, under a new but slightly familiar moniker; Jonah’s Onelinedrawing. Once again he used crowd funding to get the project off the ground, offering plenty of awesome rewards for pledgers that he actually fulfilled in a timely manner let along at all. I’m not saying Jonah never comes through, he always does, I’m just comparing him to countless other people/bands who use crowd funding and scam people by never delivering on all the rewards they offer. It turns out that after the record was finished it would be released in a joint effort with Thunderbeard Records.
Me And You Are Two has two wildly different variants, with each being exclusive to certain outlets. Jonah has his own variant, which can only be bought directly from him minus a few copies Thunderbeard sold in bundle deals with their variant. Jonah’s variant comes in a white sleeve with black ink, which includes a copy of the record on “random split” colored vinyl, which is most likely all half brown/half grey. It seems most people assumed/speculated/thought that every copy would be different or unique based on the “random split” name choice. What I think was meant is that random colors were ordered from the plant so nobody involved in the release knew what would be received. The color of ink on the covers for Jonah’s variant was also described as unique, but I think what was meant by that was Jonah use a multi-color crayon to color in some copies for the people who pledged through Kickstarter. Every copy I’ve seen so far of Jonah’s variant looks exactly the same. Thunderbeard has their own variant, which comes in a black sleeve with silver ink, which includes of a copy of the record on blue vinyl. Inside the sleeve of Thunderbeard’s variant the ink is blue though.
Jonah’s variant (half/half split vinyl with white jacket) is limited to 250 copies andThunderbeard’s variant (blue vinyl with black jacket) is limited to 250 copies. Every copy is hand numbered, with the numbering done /500 rather than /250 for each of the variants. Jonah’s variant is the first 250 (1-250) with the Thunderbeard jacket being the second half of the 500 (251-500). The jackets are a half fold style printed on a decent thickness card stock. The lyrics and liner notes are printed on the inside of the sleeves, with the track listed printed on the back of the folded portion.
