didn't it rain (2014/SECRETLY CANADIAN)

INDIE/FOLK-ROCK. "didn't it rain" is Jason Molina's 1st perfect record. Recorded live in a single room, with no overdubs and musicians creating their parts on the fly, the overall approach to the recording was nothing new for Molina. His albums had always been full of space, but never had Molina sculpted the space as masterfully as he does on "didn't it rain". This expanded reissue presents Molina's home demos of the record, 8 previously unreleased tracks, complete with a distant playground full of children chiming in the background for a few songs. The glorious juxtaposition of Molina's songs' desolation and the blissful playing of children is about as haunting as it gets, friends. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
