I guess around the time of their second album Fading Trails we had no idea that there wouldn't be too many further Jason Molina and Magnolia Electric Co records to enjoy. The singer passed in 2013 leaving a sprawling back catalogue behind him under a shower of different names. This one further explores the rockier and more blues orientated sound the group began to explore but contains Molina's usual sad-eyed song craft and bewitching tenor voice.

- Fading Trails by Magnolia Electric Co
JASON MOLINA has another album out. Yup, after the storm away success of Let Me Go his MAGNOLIA ELECTRIC CO beat combo are trying to woo me with the new album called Fading Trails. Initially it's not as good as the last album nor is it as good as the Songs Ohia stuff.... mainly cos of the naff guitar solos someone insists on playing. The beefy Albini sound works well though so if you want some chunky Americana/ country then this will appeal greatly I'm sure. Though at times it can sounds a little trad.
