Jason Molina tours solo; Sojourner soon back on sale


In Magnolia Electric Co.’s Sojourner box set tour documentary, The Road Becomes What You Leave, the band and the film's producers Todd Chandler and Tim Sutton tried to capture the “loneliness and isolation one can feel even when traveling in a pack.” After eight months of gigs in 2007, frontman Jason Molina has apparently yet to go stir crazy from the introspection that accompanies constantly gazing out car windows at abandoned gas stations and fallow fields, for the artist formerly known as Songs: Ohia has planned a month or so worth of European solo dates through the beginning of December.

And speaking of that box set, wood-packaged and filled with four CDs, a DVD and bonus knickknacks, it’ll be available to order again through Secretly Canadian on Oct. 30. Do be mindful that there is a limited supply. The casing is the only part that grows on trees.
