Magnolia Electric Co.

Musician and painter Jason Molina is one prolific artist. His most recent release, Sojourner — most recent as of this writing, that is; Molina releases albums like some people send e-mail messages — is as alt-country as Uncle Tupelo. On Sojourner songs like "Hammer Down" and "Montgomery," his vocals are as wavering and Midwest angst-ridden as Jeff Tweedy's, and he's as musically versatile as the Wilco leader. Besides his Magnolia work, Molina has recorded under the moniker Songs: Ohia for years, releasing albums that range from singer-songwriter solo to murky lo-fi rock.
