Joy Electric - The Fifth Point of the Compass

Here's another band I'm sometimes surprised doesn't get more attention. Joy Electric is the music of Ronnie Martin (brother of Jason Martin from Starflyer 59), and it's straight up synth-pop to the max. Maybe some of it is a little too poppy for people, and maybe some people get discouraged when they see it is on Christian label Tooth & Nail, but the more I hear of his work the more I enjoy it. His most recent EP is called Montgolfier and the Romantic Balloons. It includes a new version of one of my favourite songs from his last album, The Ministry of Archers, remixed by "The Duke" of Freezepop fame.
