RIP Jason Molina
Black Mask. - Black Mask. (2012)
At first I though this was another Black "something" band but then I saw the period.
Scavenger - Cynical (2013)
Scavenger are a hardcore troupe from northern Maine that are quite reminiscent of early hardcore punk that requires a cassette player and big giant 80's speakers. Not bad, not bad.
Songs: Ohia - The Lioness (2000)
While clearly not as recognized as Magnolia Electric Co. or as truthfully and down right sad as Axxess & Ace (one of my favorite albums to play when I'm sad), The Lioness definitely has its moments of both sadness and glory that makes it stand out in my top three Jason Molina albums list.
Highlights include: "Lioness", "Being in Love", "Coxcomb Red", and "Nervous Bride"
