GIGS: Magnolia Electric Company
Fronted by the distinctive-voiced, morose soundscapes of Jason Molina. MEC was formerly Songs: Ohia until Molina changed the name in 2003. If you like the low-fi, lovelorn lyricism thing, this is for you. Darkness was never so sweet. Compare to Will Oldham/Bonnie Prince Billy and My Morning Jacket, with whom Molina has also recorded. JH
