Long out-of-print EPs by SONGS: OHIA get combined on new remastered reissue Travels In Constants

It’s hard to believe that we’re approaching the five year anniversary of the tragic death of Jason Molina, who blew thousands of hearts and minds with his melancholic folk songs under his various monikers (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co., and solo as Jason Molina).

While the master has passed, he’s left plenty of music to discover — or, in this case, re-discover; as Temporary Residence recently announced the remastered re-release of two single-track-length EPs that Songs: Ohia originally released back in 2001 in impossibly limited numbers.

The new reissue, called Travels In Constants, features the 18 minute tune of the same name, which Molina laid down straight to 4-track for the label as part of their subscription service. The flip side of the record is another epic one-track EP called Howler that Songs: Ohia also recorded in 2001 amongst a flurry of creativity that he somehow managed to squeeze in between the release of two of his most acclaimed albums (Ghost Tropic and Didn’t It Rain).

You can listen to YouTube clips of both tracks down below, but die hard audiophiles and Molinaphiles alike can find pleasure in the fact that this will be the first time these two tracks have found their way onto vinyl.

Pre-order now from Temporary Residence — or find the release at any self-respecting purveyor of beautifully depressing music on February 16.
