Several years ago we lost Jason Molina a brilliant songwriter and a powerful voice in the world of independent music. I’ve been thinking about his songs a lot lately, especially while reading the book about his life, Riding With The Ghost by Erin Osmon. We had the honour of opening for Magnolia Electric Co. a few times over the years in places as disparate as Austin, Texas and Brussels, Belgium. Jason’s music has always meant a lot to me, as Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co., and also in his solo albums and collaborations, and it is in regular rotation in our tour van. Our cover of ‘The Dark Don’t Hide It’ by Magnolia Electric Co., recorded live for the series Onder Invloed / The Influences is an homage to his influence and the staggering body of work he gave us. Watch the full performance -
