It’s been almost two years since Jason Molina of Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. passed away due to organ failure, but since then we’ve heard a number of tribute covers by his peers and admirers. Marissa Nadler recorded a cover of Molina’s song “It’s Easier Now” for a new tribute album titled Through The Static And Distance: The Songs Of Jason Molina. All of the album proceeds will go to Molina’s family. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a cover of this track; Mark Kozelek recorded his own version shortly after Molina’s passing, which was released on a benefit record alongside Molina’s friends and collaborators. Listen to Nadler’s cover below.
Through The Static And Distance: The Songs Of Jason Molina is out now. You can buy it here.
