What’s up with the MAGNOLIA boxset?

We realize that many of you who are wanting the MAGNOLIA ELECTRIC CO. boxset, Sojourner, are having a difficult time getting one. Here’s the scoop. The band are on a massive coast to coast tour of the United States and they took a lot of the boxes with them. A lot! When the band returns we will be able to re-allot the boxes and hopefully everyone who wants one will be able to get one.

August 7th, Secretly Canadian will release The Sojourner Boxset by Magnolia Electric Co. It is the accumulated work of thirteen musicians, five locations, four recording engineers, three filmmakers, two designers and one songwriter, including enough new material for three full lengths, one EP and one DVD.

Nashville Moon was recorded by Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio studios in Chicago, Illinois and features the most frequent line up of Magnolia Electric Co.

Black Ram was recorded by David Lowery at his Sound Of Music studios in Richmond, Virginia and features an entirely different cast of characters.

Sun Sessions was recorded at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee

Shohola was recorded by Jason Molina and features himself, alone, with a guitar and microphone.

The DVD is a film called The Road Becomes What You Leave which was produced by Todd Chandler and Tim Sutton. It follows the band as they tour across the prairie provinces of Canada and shows the loneliness and isolation one can feel even when traveling in a pack.

Together, these make for the most ambitious and robust Magnolia Electric Co release to date all wrapped up in a special box, with artwork by Jason Molina and some special trinkets as well.

We’re so excited by this that we’re offering a sneak peek of the box and music on our site now:
