Jason Molina, You Will Be Missed

Over the weekend we learned that Jason Molina of Songs:Ohia / Magnolia Electric Co. passed away. I know I speak for everyone at Dead Oceans, when I say that this is a huge blow to our music community and we’re devastated beyond words. On a personal level, I was not the closest to Jason, but I knew him and loved his music, his songs and his voice. I first encountered Jason in the late 90s, when I interviewed him for Flagpole Magazine, in Athens, GA. I remember distinctly that Jason didn’t want to talk about the new record he was touring in support of, but that he wanted to talk about what he was going to do next. He told me about how he was making a soul record as the follow-up, and you could just tell that his creative juices were flowing. Of course, Songs:Ohia never quite made Superfly, but I loved that Jason was hearing a soul classic in his mind, when he was writing and recording a new LP. It was inspired.

What’s hardest about today, as this news became public, is not my relationship to Jason. It’s my relationship to so many of Jason’s friends who cared deeply about him. I’m thinking of their loss, the void in their hearts, and it is heart breaking. There are going to be many tributes to Jason in the coming days, but I suggest starting with this touching tribute from the only record label he ever called home, Secretly Canadian.

Song For Zula

Some say love is a burning thing
That it makes a fiery ring
Oh but I know love as a fading thing
Just as fickle as a feather in a stream
See, honey, I saw love. You see, it came to me
It put its face up to my face so I could see
Yeah then I saw love disfigure me
Into something I am not recognizing

See, the cage, it called. I said, “Come on in”
I will not open myself up this way again
Nor lay my face to the soil, nor my teeth to the sand
I will not lay like this for days now upon end
You will not see me fall, nor see me struggle to stand
To be acknowledge by some touch from his gnarled hands
You see, the cage, it called. I said, “Come on in”
I will not open myself up this way again

You see, the moon is bright in that treetop night
I see the shadows that we cast in the cold, clean light
My feet are gold. My heart is white
And we race out on the desert plains all night
See, honey, I am not some broken thing
I do not lay here in the dark waiting for thee
No my heart is gold. My feet are light
And I am racing out on the desert plains all night

So some say love is a burning thing
That it makes a fiery ring
Oh but I know love as a caging thing
Just a killer come to call from some awful dream
O and all you folks, you come to see
You just stand there in the glass looking at me
But my heart is wild. And my bones are steam
And I could kill you with my bare hands if I was free
