Prolific singer-songwriter Jason Molina released 19 albums, more than a dozen EPs, and many more singles between 1997 and his death in 2013. This week, we give a listen to the 7th and final release under the moniker Songs: Ohia; Magnolia Electric Company.

For our first podcast of 2017, we welcomed special guest Matty Wishnow and what he affectionately refers to as an anthem for his 40s, Songs: Ohia. Magnolia Electric Company is at times haunting in its presentimental lyrics that feel like a farewell from a man that was clearly dealing with demons that would claim his life only 10 years later. The album, recorded by Steve Albini, marks a departure from previous Songs: Ohia releases and sets a new direction for Molina’s work that he would release under the Magnolia Electric Co. band.


Shane tries to lift the mood during A Few Minutes With by reminding us that just because you can ask a girl to “sex you up” with your flip-up sunglasses and big-shouldered jackets in 1991, doesn’t mean you won’t be changing tires in Oklahoma in 25 years. And as a crisp, refreshing final course, Kevin brings us Sydney’s Middle Kids with their single Edge of Town.
