RIP Jason Molina

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Yes, it was available also as an ebook on Amazon last I checked, but for the same price of thirty dollars.

I wish that was coming somewhere near me. I thought for sure they'd schedule a Bloomington, IN show.

I went to the Philly show last night, it was pretty great. 1/2 the set was from Didn't It Rain and Mag Elec co which made me happy. His widow was there who seemed like the nicest person and also the author of the book was there who did some readings inbetween songs. Was worth it just to hear the pedal steel player although the whole band sounded great. Good time all around but also a little sad and weird without Jason's vocals/presence.

Also all of Molina's albums on vinyl were $15 a piece at the merch table. Picked up MEC and an MEC shirt. It's definitely worth going to if you're thinking about it.

I gave that DC set a listen.

It was like this odd cognitive dissonance. It made me kind of angry. Like who are you, kid with the bowl cut, trying to sing these songs?

I love the intent but no one's going to be able to do the songs justice.

i think we should change this thread title to a general appreciation thread. i was driving back from vacation on monday and i listened to the didnt it rain demos for the first time. this track in particular:



just blew me away. that guitar sound is mesmerizing, the extra lyrics etc. didn't it rain has to be his best album. i love MEC just fine, but that early era molina is special and didnt it rain seems like the moment he hit this fugue state, where the words and music just pours out of him onto the record. he dips and frantic energy but keeps the earnest spirit.

Secretly Canadian just announced its plans to release another piece of the late singer-songwriter Jason Molina’s music, this time in the form of a 7” titled The Black Sabbath Covers. The 7” will include “Solitude” from Masters of Reality and “Snowblind” from Vol. 4

Yeah Ghost Tropic and especially Didn't It Rain sound like nothing else, he tapped into something special with those. Didn't It Rain is one of my all time favorite album's for sure.

Didn't It Rain actually feels like a cousin to Laughing Stock to me, more than anything.

I've had Lioness in my head all day and night for 4 days now.
I'm semi consciously singing and humming it all day, and lie awake during the night with the song playing in my head.
RIP JM and all, but this is getting unnerving.

THIS IS A PRE-ORDER! ITEMS WILL SHIP ON OR AROUND FEBRUARY 16, 2018!

Sometime in 2001 – sandwiched between the release of Ghost Tropic and its follow-up, the cryptic classic, Didn't It Rain – Songs: Ohia recorded an EP for Temporary Residence's distance-themed subscription series, Travels In Constants. The untitled EP consisted of a single 18-minute song – performed live by Jason Molina in his living room, recorded directly to 4-track cassette as the sounds of a typical Chicago night bled through the air. Built solely from an acoustic guitar and Molina's familiar melancholy croon, it's a hauntingly intimate track. Molina once remarked that it was "probably too out there" for a proper Songs: Ohia album, which is perhaps why is felt right at home in this context. Scarcely available in its original CD-only edition of 1,000 copies, Travels In Constants has finally been remastered and reissued for vinyl and digital formats. Completing this reissue is "Howler," another unusually lengthy Songs: Ohia track that, like Travels In Constants, was recorded and released in 2001 in an edition of only 1,000. These tracks are amongst the most abstractly beautiful and alarmingly delicate music that Molina ever committed to tape. It's an honor to finally make it properly available for the world.

LIMITED EDITION COLORED VINYL: ORANGE W/ BLUE STREAKS (EDITION OF 500)

THE FIRST 180 COLORED VINYL ORDERS WILL RECEIVE AN ORIGINAL COPY OF THE TRAVELS IN CONSTANTS COMPACT DISC (OUT-OF-PRINT SINCE 2001)!

VINYL FORMAT INCLUDES MP3 DOWNLOAD COUPON INSIDE PACKAGE

TRACK LISTING
1. Travels In Constants
2. Howler
