Magnolia Electric Co.

After retiring Songs: Ohia, Jason Molina started up Magnolia Electric Co., a new avenue to explore his country-rock. The name of the new group was taken from the title of the last Songs: Ohia record and proved to be the appropriate connection from the past to the next phase of Molina's projects. The early makeup of the four-piece band in 2003 consisted of Pete Schreiner (Panoply Academy, Coke Dares) on drums, Mike Kapinus (Okkervil River) on bass and trumpet, Jason Groth (Impossible Shapes, John Wilkes Booze, Coke Dares) on guitar, and Jason Molina providing the other guitar and vocals. Magnolia Electric Co. recorded Trials & Errors live in Brussels in 2003, which Secretly Canadian released in January 2005. With later tours, Magnolia Electric Co. shifted the lineup of the band, adding Mark Rice (Impossible Shapes, John Wilkes Booze) on drums and moving Schreiner to bass and Kapinus to trumpet and keyboards, while Groth and Molina remained on guitar. Magnolia Electric Co.'s full-length studio debut appeared to glowing reviews in spring 2005 via Secretly Canadian. The band didn't slow down, touring for most of the summer and issuing the five-song EP Hard to Love a Man in October. The band released Fading Trails in September 2006, and then followed it up in August 2007 with Sojourner, a limited-edition four-CD set for the fans. Sadly, Jason Molina suffered from alcoholism for years, which ultimately led to his death from organ failure in March 2013 at the age of 39. ~ David Serra, Rovi

Music from the heart!! Saw them live and they put on a hell of a show. It's too bad Jason died so young. I'd loved to have seen all his music he had in store for us!

crap! i just discovered this guy. It sucks that he killed himself with alcohol. at least people tell the truth about about alcohol and drugs being killers. used to sweep that stuff under the rug.

Vinyl was a staple of Jason's releases. He'd do vinyl-only releases, and then include a CD in with the vinyl (like with Pyramid Electric Co.) Lots of really rare vinyl from 96-2001, too.

I saw him a bunch of times between 2002 and 2006, including some small empty shows and some big sold out shows. Jason was such a nice guy, it's such a shame.

This is going to sound like an audiofile snob kind of question, but has anyone seen any of Molina's work (Song Ohia, Magnolia Electric Company, ETC) on Vinyl?

A major regret in my life will be never seeing Molina live. R.I.P.

Pandora has landed me on this band/guy several times in the past 6 months for which I am happy. If I were to purchase one CD, which would be the best to start with? Anyone? Thanks.

Love love love Jason Molina. Yes there are comparisons (I agree with Will Oldham and Neil Young for sure) but JM's an original artist. Beautiful awesome tense songs -- his voice breaks your heart and his sound rocks you out. GREAT live.

It is time for the musical world to take notice! This cat is the real deal. He is the music. Refreshing and not soon forgotten.

I love Lucero, and these guys- but I can't see any similarity between the two besides both being great... to me the voices couldn't be more distinct from each other. I think Lucero is from the South... LR and Memphis.
