New release of previously unreleased music of the late Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co.).
Be Told the Truth from the album Eight Gates
Seven years after the death of Songs: Ohia
and Magnolia Electric Co. leader Jason
Molina, Eight Gates collects nine unreleased
songs recorded in 2008 while he was living in
London. Molina had learned a wealth of trivial
factoids about the city and its history during
his stint—often twisting the facts as he'd
come up with poetic flights of fancy (the
album title refers to the seven gates of
London, imagining a new gate for himself).
Otherwise, his oblique prose runs deep
through these Spare, doleful recordings, filled
with existential frustration (“Old Worry”) and
pithy dirges ("Be Told the Truth”) set
alongside funereal organs and acoustic slow
burns, respectively. Molina, a lifelong
Midwesterner, lets the guitar notes hang on
"Whisper Away," evoking the picturesque
landscape of his hometown in all its vastness.
The mood feels ominous, but also peaceful,
as Molina added the soothing natural sound
of birds throughout—which he recorded on
his four-track in the garden outside of his
Brick Lane house. These moments offer
flickers of respite, like on "Thistle Blue," where
he accentuates the calm and the chaos within
himself; "Blackbird and thistle blue/Whose
wilderness has my heartbreak wandered
My god, that's amazing. I'm not sure who other than Neil Young can pull off an organ part so well in a song like that.
whole album is good. Like 7 or 8 songs.
I was browsing you tube because well it offers me gems constantly. Love this, I knew it was something special before I even read the name.
And something a little more modern.
I recently picked up the last remaining CD I needed to complete my Quintessential Billie Holiday series. My favorite of the collection:
Saw a documentary about Panama...
Enjoying planar bass - Githead, Air Dancing:
RL Burnside - Wish I was in Heaven Sitting Down.
I like RL's sound since his early stuff but this disc brings elements from modern music from disparate genres to a pleasing effect. I do not vouch for the youtube link as I listened in 16/44.1 FLAC on Tidal.
The 1980-ties just invaded the 21st century, and it is Kylie Minogue...
P.S. Now I have to play this song.
Sorry, Tame Impala just released the video. Too good to not share...
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars (1984 RCA CD).
Such a good song.
