Glen Hansard (The Frames, The Swell Season)’s tribute to friend & colleague Jason Molina (Songs:Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co), Recorded with members of Songs: Ohia & featuring Covers of 5 songs by Songs:Ohia.

“Jason Molina was a hero & a friend, I wrote him my first fan letter, I always loved his music & singing these songs is the only way to make sense of losing him” - Glen Hansard. "Each song feels like a poignantly delivered eulogy for a harrowing life. 'Hold on Magnolia' may be the saddest of Molina’s many sad songs, but hearing Hansard sing these words when we know Molina never will again is devastating. The bright side at the end is that Molina’s voice lives on in his music. Artists like Hansard know just how important it is to preserve his work. As Molina declared on 'Farewell Transmission': “I will be gone, but not forever.” - consequence of sound.
