Artists give tracks to Jason Molina charity LP

Releases

Weary Engine Blues

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Damien Jurado and Scout Niblett are amongst the artists donating tracks to a new LP commemorating late singer-songwriter Jason Molina, who died earlier this month.

The covers compilation, titled ‘Weary Engine Blues’, will be released via Graveface Records on 23 Apr, with all profits going towards paying off Molina’s outstanding medical bills.

Each of its 525 pressings will carry screen-printed art by William Shaff, who designed the sleeve to Molina’s eponymous LP as Magnolia Electric Co.

It’s available to order in advance via this link.

In the meantime this is Mark Kozelek’s take on Molina’s ‘It’s Easier Now':
