Cape Snow premieres new single


Popmatters has premiered the new single “One More Time” from Cape Snow. They call it “a flat-out gorgeous rustic waltz that not only echoes the best traits of Americana, but touches on the influences of such ‘90s stalwarts as Mazzy Star and Low. Country slowcore, if you will. It’s a beautiful song, and we strongly suggest you give it a listen.”

Out Now: Meet Me Where We Survive: Jason Molina Interviews, 1998-2002 by Dylan Metrano

Jason Molina was a great, largely unsung, singer-songwriter from Ohio, who released a multitude of albums between 1996 and 2009. The music he made as Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co., and under his own name deeply connected to and influenced listeners throughout the world.
Meet Me Where We Survive is a collection of three interviews that Dylan Metrano did with Jason Molina between 1998 and 2002. The interviews are long out of print, and are collected here for the first time. This book is illustrated with Metrano’s original cut-paper portraits of Molina.

Pre-order Jason Molina tribute 2LP now!


Over a year in the works, we are now taking pre-orders for the double-LP Through the Static and Distance: The Songs of Jason Molina. Please take a moment to read about, listen to samples from, and pre-order the album at

Tribute albums are a strange undertaking, funny to love something so well then want to change it, to interpret it for yourself.  Anyone who has ever performed or recorded someone else’s song understands that to cover a song is to find some way in, deeper than you could from just listening; it’s a way of knowing a song intimately, to make it your own and to love it.

Jason Molina’s songs seem so passionately torn from his very heart in such a way as to make us smell the fleshy vitality.  They are small and personal, as though a tiny secret whispered in our ears, yet speak to such enormous truths and overarching perceptions.  They revealed an author in ways we might not even come to know ourselves.  To hear Jason’s albums is to understand and fully believe his authenticity.

No one is under the impression they’re going to improve on the genuine article but with these songs we say, “Thanks for showing us what you saw, what you felt.  We see it and we feel it and we fucking agree.  With the whole of our hearts.  Thank you, Jason, for the beauty you brought to this world.”
