A fellow BW aficionado I met at an office party recommended a recently deceased singer/songwriter to me - almost as enthusiastically as he talked about BW's production techniques (the guy was a producer and "amp engineer" himself). The artist he adored was called Jason Molina, whom he called "a beautiful man and musician" and told me an anecdote about how he once played a gig with him. I had never heard of him.

Molina mostly recorded under the pseudonym Songs: Ohia. Last night I started to listen to a couple of random tracks, more or less attentively. Before midnight I had his entire discography. And I vaguely remembered listening to a side-project of his in college. I'm a glowing overnight fan, and I thought it probable to find a few like-minded individuals here -  the bestest music-related board of all.  Cheesy

For anyone not familiar with Molina: He's somewhere between solo Syd Barrett, Sparklehorse, Elliott Smith and Will Oldham, with a very distinct 'voice' of his own.

So what are your Jason Molina favourites?  Smiley
