ALBUM RELEASE // Songs: Ohia ‘Didn’t It Rain’ Deluxe Reissue Out Now



“This is the sound of Molina standing on the brink of something. He didn’t seem to know quite what yet, and that stark uncertainty imbues Didn’t It Rain with a sickening yet heroic alchemy: the ability to make smallness and helplessness feel somehow brave.”

- Pitchfork “Best New Reissue”

12 years after its initial release, we are proud share with you the deluxe reissue of Songs: Ohia’s Didn’t It Rain, out now worldwide. The album is Jason Molina’s first perfect record and an ode to the Midwest Rust Belt under which Molina was born and Molina’s newfound Chicago home. This expanded reissue presents Molina’s home demos of the record, eight previously unreleased tracks, complete with a distant playground full of children chiming in the background for a few songs. The glorious juxtaposition of Molina’s songs’ desolation and the blissful playing of children is about as haunting as it gets. Listen to an alternate unheard version of “Ring the Bell” above or here on Youtube / Soundcloud.

You can purchase the special deluxe bundle including 2xLP, 2xCD, download codes, and a giant 27″ x 39″ Didn’t It Rain cinema style poster via SC Distribution. The reissue is also available via iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

eda27d3f-2d36-4cf0-8f46-203a7433c937

Today, we are proud to release TURNING, the concert film documentary of the critically acclaimed tour of Europe by Antony and the Johnsons and Charles Atlas during the fall of 2006. Described by Antony as “some of the most significant work of my career,” the documentary pairs Antony’s songs and Atlas’ unfurling video portraiture of 13 women to explore themes of identity, transcendence, and the revelation of a revolutionary feminine essence.

To celebrate the release of the TURNING documentary and concert on DVD+CD, during the month of December, Antony and the Johnsons and Charles Atlas’ “You Are My Sister” will be featured each night at 11:57pm as part of the Midnight Moment program, a massive digital art gallery on the electronic billboards of Times Square presented by the Times Square Advertising Coalition and curated by Times Square Arts. The film will count down the final three minutes of each day leading up to New Year’s Eve, reminding us that we are all connected as we reflect on the year past and look forward to the year to come.

TURNING is now available on DVD+CD and digitally in North America via Secretly Canadian and November 10th in the UK and Europe via Rough Trade. It includes a DVD of the documentary and CD of the complete audio recording of the TURNING concert, live at The Barbican in London in November 2006. Purchase now via Secretly Canadian/Rough Trade, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

“Kastlander has a voice as warm and fragile as any in independent music, but she’s just as inclined to infuse it with hip-hop’s braggadocio.”

The FADER

“… when they’re able to scale that wall and dance with the stars, the album’s a treat.”

Pitchfork

“The new album flexes huge melodies and big feelings, and every song feels like a finely sculpted top-40 single in a more hazed-out reality than the one we currently occupy.”
