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.
