6/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 16 July 2009
The Magnolia electric co. is the recording pseudonym of Jason Molina (previously known as Songs:Ohio) and this is officially his 16th record (his fifth as Magnolia Electric Co.) and is dedicated to Evan farrell, the Magnolia electric co. bass player who tragically died at the end of 2007. The press release tells me that 'Josephine' is a concept album about the loss which i assume is meant to symbolically represent Evan. Anyway, throughout the record Jason makes constant reference to Josephine whilst addressing universal themes of loss, regret and heartache. The album is incredibly well crafted and shows Jason Molina to be more than capable song writer. My only gripe is that it's almost to pro. It's as if it was recorded with a bunch of old time Memphis studio musicians and sounds heavily influenced by traditional american country rock. So it doesn't have that urgency of the early Songs:Ohio material and, much like many of the artists that came out of the american punk rock underground, Jason Molina has really mellowed out (his changed). Not necessarily a bad thing but it doesn't work that well for me i'm afraid.
