The Monthly List: March’s Top 10 (or 11)

from Burritt’s Geography of the Heavens, 1856

Back after a short vacation. In the wake of Jason Molina’s death, I listened to almost nothing but Magnolia Electric Co., Songs: Ohia, and Jason Molina solo records. It’d been forever since I listened to much singer/songwriter stuff, so April turned into something of a binge.

I hosted the Brainwashed Podcast dedicated to Jason Molina last month, and on March 26th I hosted a two hour Molina tribute show on WZBC. I recorded almost the entire show and may post it soon, at least for a little while. If you happened to tune in but haven’t checked out yet, you should. I pulled all the live performances from bootlegs freely—and legally—available on that site.

As always, formats posted are the ones I own. Others may be available. If you like any of the samples I link to, please buy the album. You can find numerous retailers carrying these titles at the bottom of this page.
