Please consider this an introduction and not a review. I’ve been a casual fan of Jason Molina’s music over the years, but I’m certainly not the knowledgeable and so I’m not going to compare these tribute versions to originals. That’s not the point of this kind of record.
Once you’ve heard Molina’s music you can find the influences of it all over the place. Several times in the last year or so we’ve review albums here and mentioned the traces of Molina. Anything I say here isn’t going to convince you to listen to Songs:Ohia or Magnolia Electric Company, but you might not know that this tribute record exists. Now you do.
Common Folk Music, Uprooted Music Revue and Rock The Cause has put together an impressive roster. My Morning Jacket, Murder By Death, Cory Branan and Water Liars all offer beautiful renditions, as well as the remaining members of the Magnolia Electric Company.
A portion of net proceeds will also be given to Jason’s family to help provide for the loved ones he left behind. Check out a couple of selections and consider making a purchase. Buy Here.
