I recently learned of Jason Molina's death and now I cannot believe how I never heard of him before. The amount of amazing music he made throughout the late 90's and early 2000's as Songs: Ohia, or Magnolia Electric Co, or as himself, is humbling-- and all before he was 40! This was an inspired dude.
His website has opened their Molina collection for free streaming for a short time. If you get the chance you should definitely check one or both of these (or any of the others). The acapella song Calling Bird from the compilations category sounds like something John Lomax would have recorded.
