After being understandably shocked about Jason Molina’s passing, I figured it was best to give him a little tribute with a second song from Magnolia Electric Co..

This is possibly my favourite of his tunes, and a favourite song in general: it’s absolutely drenched in style and mood, evoking the mystery of a desert at night far better than anything I could ever write. Coupled with some amazing, evocative lyrics (♫ Mamma, here comes midnight, with the dead moon in its jaws, one of my most loved lyrics ever), you’ve got a recipe for utter brilliance.
