Ten Years of The Lioness

Posted by @ 6:17 pm on February 22nd, 2010

Hey, so this year is the tenth anniversary of The Lioness, a seminal album by countryish indie-rockers Songs: Ohia, whose frontman is the estimable Jason Molina (who also fronts Magnolia Electric Co.). Molina’s best, I think, are elliptical, sinister love songs, with which he stuffed The Lioness from front to back. His songs are heavily symbolic, studded with violent images, etc.–just listen to the songs I’m posting below (but don’t watch the videos–they’re just still images of the band), won’t you?

P.S. That third song isn’t from The Lioness, but it’s one of my favorite songs ever.

P.P.S. The new Joanna Newsom album is something special.
