Adored and brilliant songwriter Jason Molina, of Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co., passed away on Saturday night. He suffered from organ failure due to alcohol consumption, according to a post on Chunklet that seems to have since been stripped of its content. Molina’s issues with substance abuse were public knowledge and his family had tried to get him help with medical bills back in 2011. Molina’s last release was a solo effort Autumn Bird Songs. Listen to Songs: Ohia’s “Just Be Simple” below.
