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

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)!

$10 extra for color vinyl is pretty funny, especially considering how awful the color vinyl for Mogwai's Atomic looked in comparison to the mock-up.

I'll wait until a local store gets it or I can put it in a larger order from Reckless.

Kinda ticked at TRL for missing the initial ship date for the recent Mogwai record by such a large margin and previously forgetting to send me a record I ordered until I hassled them.

Better than the Jim James one but still not good at all. Really weird place to have the drums kick in

I am a fan of their work - but why release a cover of Farewell Transmission if you're going to bring absolutely nothing new to the song at the same time as removing all the drama from it.

i've found that many musicians enjoy performing songs they like (for one reason or another), without necessarily seeking to be creative about it. artists who traditionally perform 'standards' come to mind, as do many choirs and classical outfits. the thrills of performing, creating, and pleasing an audience are distinct, even if they often overlap.

Well he’s marginally better than Waxahatchee

I have yet to hear a single cover of “Farewell Transmission” that I’ve liked. And it’s not because the original album version (or the MEC demo) is really sacred to me or anything or that it’s even one of my favorite Molina songs. But it seems like it’s his most covered and well-known song, and I’d be really happy if no one ever covered it again.

I'm listening to the Molina bio on my way to work lately. The narrator is really bad, but I must power through. Love that this dude was in his dorm at Oberlin listening to Codeine and RHP.

yeah I dislike the farewell trans one a lot

I mean I don't dislike them for playing it, it's a great song

I dislike record companies for thinking we need to hear it

is it weird that Autumn Bird Songs is functioning like a major Molina gateway for me recently? absolutely in love with it, especially "the harvest law" and "no hand was at the wheel."

There’s this pop country cover band in my area called Nashville Electric Company, and part of me wants to think it’s a nod to MeCo but considering they’re just a bad cover band it’s all probably a coincidence and it just kind of makes me irrationally angry.
