OKAY! I certainly don't want to feed into any gossip at all, but I gotta question: Is this legit? I will gladly GLADLY donate some $$ to this man's medical fund, if it in fact is true.

I don't need no specifics, I just want to know if this is a legitimate donation that I'd be making.

I feared as much. I had a couple of unprompted, rambling FB chats with him before his disappearance and he seemed a bit on edge, bless him. I'm glad he's alive and functioning on some level. Will send some scratch when I have some free. He's a terrific chap and a great songwriter.

Get well soon, Jason.

Most definitely NC. Way too many great moments. I currently have the song Lioness on heavy rotation.

I was handed a copy of Ghost Tropics right when I separated from my wife. The songs are burned into me. Fantastic stuff. A real soul-fucker.

I have two records of his and deeply enjoy both of them, though I did hear one or two songs off of what I think was his first album and thought they were awful.

But a few crappy songs early in his career can't destroy how I feel about Didn't It Rain and especially Ghost Tropic, which is an almost insanely bleak, frightening record and seriously underrated.

Ghost Tropic is also pretty much the perfect rebuttal to anyone who says Jason Molina sounds too much like Will Oldham, because it sounds absolutely nothing like any record Oldham's made.

I haven't heard that much of Molina's catalog, but two great records - and they are both great - is enough to earn pretty much any artist a Not Crap from me, and Molina's not crap.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

Magnolia Electric Co. is as good as Didn't It Rain but those two are his best records by a distance.

I hope he's on the mend, I miss our occasional chats.

Why is Magnolia Electric Co. credited to Songs:Ohia when it's actually the first Magnolia Electric Co. album? Guess it's a basic question but I've never quite understood why.

I *think* it was meant to be an introduction to the new band/sound and a goodbye the previous. Bit of an overlap to get everyone's attention. Just a guess tough...


Again, Impala is unfuckwithable. Get it.

And again... anyone who agrees that Didn't It Rain is the top shelf absolutely needs the Grey Tower 7er to accompany it. Necessary purchase.


NC ever.

I've really been digging the demos/bonus stuff from the Magnolia Electric Co. release lately. Probably should have grabbed it just for that. Maybe I'll do just that and give the album proper another go...

Haven't bought that newish 10'' yet.


NC ever.

Listening to Didn't It Rain while it sleets all around me.
Fantastic soundtrack to weather that Georgia doesn't experience often.
