Didn't It Rain (2014 reissue)

Secretly Canadian


Released: 1st Dec 2014


This Reissue of Jason Molina’s 2002 masterpiece features the original album as well as an additional disc of never-before-released demos.

‘Didn’t It Rain’ is Jason Molina’s first perfect record- an ode to the Midwest Rust Belt under which Molina was born & Molina’s (at the time) newfound Chicago home. Recorded live in a single room, with no overdubs & musicians creating their parts on the fly, the overall approach to the recording was nothing new for Molina.This expanded reissue presents Molina’s home demos of the record, eight previously unreleased tracks, complete with a distant playground full of children chiming in the background for a few songs. The glorious juxtaposition of Molina’s songs’ desolation & the blissful playing of children is about as haunting as it gets.
