february 2014 mix

Posted on Sunday 2 February 2014

Mid-last year, I had a momentary lapse while listening to Songs: Ohia‘s “Just Be Simple” — one of those thoughts that you are immediately embarrassed about — that I should make a point of checking Jason Molina’s touring schedule so I could see him the next time he came to town. It’s amazing how one can put sad thoughts out of one’s mind rather than hang on to them. It was only mere months ago that I had read with great pain of the loss of Jason to addiction. Those songs still live with me, though they hit me a bit harder now that he has left us.

So this mix was kinda intended to be a take on modern country, but with my taste is more folksy than I originally envisioned. I find it soothing, but it probably won’t exactly put you in a good mood.

Rest in peace, Jason.

    Thanks, dje! I feel like this was one of the undervalued ones on 8tracks.
