TUESDAY BLUES! Jason Molina - The Harvest Law

Jason Molina - The Harvest Law (2012)

Jason Molina is a recent musical discovery for me.  The American singer/songwriter, who has performed with Magnolia Electric Co. & Songs:Ohia has released a mini LP called Autumn Bird Songs, his first material since 2009.


When I first heard this track, I was struck by three things, 1) He sounds gutted, 2) I love the melodic verses, 3) it sounded very demo-like.  After a little research I discovered that he's got good reason to feel a bit 'gutted', as after spending the last three years in and out of rehab, this struggle left him with vast medical bills.  Benefit concerts, compilation albums and this mini album release will hopefully help.



So if you are feeling generous, download the album legit and you might cheer him up!

That run of Songs:Ohia albums from 1997 to 2003 is a pretty darned astonishing bunch of stuff - deep, dark and unsettling. If you only have time for one, try 'The Lioness', made in Scotland with members of Arab Strap and, personal favourite, Alasdair Roberts.

Excellent post sfw. Good to see the great man back.

This is what Tuesday Blues is all about excellent stuff searching out more immediately. Will look for the Lioness first. Thanks to Mr S.
