BNS 016 "Riding with the Ghost" b​/​w "Ghost 2"

by Western Standards

supported by


Brothers and Sisters,

Today’s one of my favourites. A while back, our friend Steve Vineis started work on a benefit compilation when the world lost the musical talent that is Jason Molina. Jason’s music hit a lot of us in many different ways, and Songs:Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co., and his eponymous releases showcase a tremendous body of work. For those, not familiar, do check out his records. They’re gorgeous. For Steve’s “Songs:Molina” compilation, he pulled together 29 songs by about as many artists covering Jason’s music, and assembled them lovingly.

Today’s single “Riding with the Ghost” and “Ghost 2” are alternate versions of a song written by Jason performed by Major Miller and myself for his Western Standards project. You heard another of our collaborations earlier on “Singer/Songer”. The first version is the one from the comp, the second is a take Matt Engstrom and I did at Caffeinated Recordings before sending Major the files for final mixes. One is menacing, the other is spooky, and I love ‘em both.
