Songs: Ohia - Farewell Transmission
Jason Molina died last year of alcohol-related organ failure. He was 39.
The real truth about it is no one gets it right
The real truth about it is we're all supposed to try
There ain't no end to the sands I've been trying to cross

Absolutely fucking amazing. Absolutely. Fucking. Amazing.
Buy the album right now if you haven't already.
I didn't get hip to Pushin' Against a Stone until I saw it on several year-end Best Of lists, and didn't start listening to it until this year. I heard Workin' Woman's Blues back in July but didn't really like it all that much (I think it's the weakest cut on the album) so I didn't check out anything else. I listen to so many different artists that it's one and done for me if I don't like the first song. Harsh, but it also lets me listen to more new artists. Usually if I don't like the first one I won't like subsequent ones. That's not always the case though. Great stuff always slips by, you know? Read below the fold...
