What our staff has to say: “One of my favorite Jason Molina LPs. Comes back around to Jason’s deep and minimal ‘blues’ albums like The Pyramid Electric Co. Bleak, slow and minimalist folk music. If this weren’t on Secretly, a lot of the heads would’ve been all over it. Just dig in.” – Alex
I wanted badly to revisit the type of songs I did on my more experimental albums The Pyramid/The Ghost/Protection Spells. I put this project together in the last days before I began what was a long and harrowing move back to Chicago. I wrote these songs as well as the half dozen or so that did not make it over the course of 3 mornings in Bloomington, Indiana and recorded them one after the other in the order they were written.
