Magnolia Electric Co fans can look forward to a veritable tidal wave of new material over the next couple of years, as Jason Molina has reportedly finished six albums worth of material under both his own name and the Magnolia moniker. However, the good folks at Secretly Canadian have decided not to blow their load so to speak, so only two of these albums will see release this year.
First up, is Let Me Go, Let Me Go, Let Me Go, a vinyl-only, limited edition solo album. The disc, apparently a return to the more experimental material found on The Ghost and Protection Spells, will see a release on August 22. Next will be Fading Trails, the new Magnolia Electric Co album. Due for a September 12 release, the album was recorded all over the US with the likes of Steve Albini and David Lowery. As for the other four albums, no release schedule has been worked out as yet, but the titles are The Nashville Moon, The Sun Studio Sessions, The Black Ram (a collaboration with Camper Van Beethoven and David Lowery) and Shohola.
Seeing as Molina doesnt really have to record anything for the rest of the decade, he should have plenty of time to tour. For now, the only dates scheduled are the following shows with Ladyhawk:
07-25 Omaha, NE – Sokol Underground *
07-26 Denver, CO – Larimer Lounge *
07-27 Salt Lake City, UT – Urban Lounge *
07-28 Missoula, MT – Raven Café *
07-29 Seattle, WA – Capitol Hill Black Party (Neumo’s Stage)
07-30 Vancouver, BC – Richard’s On Richard *
