Limited edition SONGS: OHIA album, Protection Spells, now available via Emusic

Limited to just 500 copies as a tour-only album back 2000, the long sought after Protection Spells is now available digitally via Emusic.
According to Molina “The Protection Spells is a collection of songs recorded over a period of several Songs: Ohia tours. Presented here are nine entirely improvised pieces. The approach to these songs involved no rehearsals, no second takes, no additions and no going back. What you have here are songs that just happened in real time. The many musicians on these recordings were friends, bandmates and, at times, total strangers.”

SONGS: OHIA live footage found online

Just found video, courtesy of “julucha” on youtube, of a Songs: Ohia performance of “Cabwaylingo” at Fritz’ Corner in Stockholm Sweden. This looks to be the band Jason had for the recording of the final Songs: Ohia album, Magnolia Electric Co. Good performance, good footage.
