Jason Molina, Pyramid Electric Co
2002 | Label: Secretly Canadian / SC Dist.

Jason Molina has nothing to hide. Though he's dabbled with various pseudonyms (Songs:Ohia for his dark folk musings, Magnolia Electric Co. for the more fleshed-out roots-rock outings), his m.o. is brutally heart-on-sleeve. The delivery on Pyramid Electric Co. is closer to the grim Songs:Ohia template — minor-key acoustic guitar and piano plinkings paired with Molina's distinctively aching incantations. Somehow, Pyramid manages to be even more skeletal and dirge-y than any of his Ohia albums —… read more »

one of the best

This is one of my all time favorite albums. Honey Watch Your Ass is my favorite on this album. Now that Jason is gone, this album feels that much heavier. When it comes to beautifully sad and ominously dark singer-sonwriter music, Jason Molina/Songs Ohia/Magnolia Electric Co. is one of the all-time greats. So so sad to see him go before his time.

Rock and roll shouldn't be complicated and should be able to be reduced to one man's misery and a guitar. For all of Magnolia and Songs:Ohio searching musically, Molina's at his best with just a guitar where that fragility and surrender can come through with his blues.

One of Molina's best

Along with Didn't It Rain and Ghost Tropic, this album is among my favorites of all the Songs: Ohia / Magnolia Electric Co. / Jason Molina recordings. Not the best place to start if you're just getting into Molina's particular brand of songwriting, but this is a very good, demanding album. Molina is absolutely one of the best songwriters working today.

Jason Molina has a voice that makes you wish you lived a life significant enough to deserve his songs. This is a wonderful summary of tracks that I've only heard live and assumed would never be released. More for the Songs:Ohia fans than the Magnolia Electric Co., but damn if it isn't worth it for everyone that's taken the time to read this far. GET IT NOW. Full Album.
