Songs: Ohia
Love & Work: The Lioness Sessions

The Lioness was one of Jason Molina's most loved works under his Songs: Ohia moniker. This was the album he recorded in Scotland with Alasdair Roberts and members of Arab Strap guesting. This 2LP re-issue has been expanded to include  no less than seven outtakes from the sessions plus some other recordings from a Lissy's session. Totally essential for any fan of the man's work.  

Songs: Ohia
Travels in Constants

Under the Songs: Ohia moniker, Jason Molina released an untitled one song EP for a subscription series on Temporary Residence Records called Travels In Constants. The EP went under the radar, lost between the release of the albums Ghost Tropic and Didn’t It Rain. Now, released on vinyl as Travels In Constants EP, the 18-minute long title track featuring just Molina and an acoustic guitar, is paired with a another lost epic, Howler, which clocks in at 13 minutes.

Jason Molina
The Black Sabbath Covers

Black Sabbath’s influence runs far and deep, emerging in some unexpected places… Such as in the recorded catalogue of Magnolia Electric Co. singer-songwriter Jason Molina. These intriguing covers of ‘Solitude’ and ‘Snowblind’ were recorded at home in the 90’s, and have only just surfaced. The B-side of this 7” contains a Will Schaff etching.

Magnolia Electric Co. (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Magnolia Electric Co was the final album Jason Molina released under the name Songs: Ohia. Whilst touring the album, he decided to change the name of the band to Magnolia Electric Co (who never released an album called Songs: Ohia). You can hear something had changed - this Steve Albini-produced record has a harder edge than previous releases. Sadly, Molina died in March 2013 of alcohol-related organ failure. Double vinyl album, 10 year anniversary edition. 

Songs: Ohia
Didn't It Rain

Alt-country songwriter Jason Molina is best known for his crowning work with Songs: Ohia, 'Magnolia Electric Co.', a cosmic alt-country record inspired by the ferocity of Steve Albini, its producer. 'Didn't It Rain', though, is a different kind of masterpiece, reflecting Molina's more commonly utilised slow-burning folk rock, always focused around quiet strumming and the vocal exchanges of him and singing partner Jennie Benford. Named after a classic folk gospel standard, 'Didn't It Rain' is proof of a plaintive songwriter in thrall of music's old lexicon.

Songs: Ohia

This is where it all started for the late Jason Molina. The eponymous debut LP from his Songs: Ohia venture was released in 1997 as only the fourth catalogue number for the fledgling Secretly Canadian imprint. The slow-/sad-core style that Molina showcased here helped set the tone for the label, the Songs: Ohia project and the late-90’s/early-00’s Americana resurgence. Very beautiful record.
