Jason Molina - Eight Gates
"Eight Gates", Jason Molina's posthumous release, compiles nine previously unheard songs he recorded while living in London around 2008. LP is ltd edition "shortcake splash".
Molina's stature has only grown in the seven-plus years since his death, as the many musicians he influenced have turned up to pay tribute — both on covers albums and in songs that explicitly reflect on the singer's legacy. So it feels like a unique privilege to hear Molina's own voice reverberate through speakers with fresh songs that convey a deeply familiar, inimitably powerful ache.
