New Molina & Johnson – “Twenty Cycles To The Ground”

Both Jason Molina and Centro-matic’s Will Johnson have had a bloggable 2009 — Molina turning out some lovely tracks and playing pool parties with Magnolia Electric Co., Johnson turning up on drums for Monsters Of Folk — but before it’s over they’ll have one more project to promote with the Molina & Johnson LP, under the name Molina & Johnson, starring Molina & Johnson. The pair met at a Magnolia show in 2007, made a record in Texas in 2008, and are putting it out now. Their collaborative rollout gets under way with “Twenty Cycles To The Ground”: a little organ, drums and acoustic guitar, Jason driving the low-key cut with his reedy vocal, the pair harmonizing like they’ve known each other for closer to 20 years than two.
