Support Jason Molina

The great Jason Molina, aka Songs Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co., seems to be in big personal troubles. This is taken from his website:

Where is Jason Molina? (September 19th, 2011)

Many of you have inquired as to Jason’s whereabouts and well-being since he canceled his tours with Will Johnson in 2009. Over the last two years Jason has been in and out of rehab facilities and hospitals in England, Chicago, Indianapolis, and New Orleans. It has been a very trying time for Jason, his friends, and his family. Although no one can be sure what the future holds, we feel very encouraged by the recent steps Jason has taken on the road towards becoming healthy and productive once again. Unfortunately, because he has no medical insurance, he has accrued substantial medical bills. We are asking all friends of Jason’s music to come together with a showing of financial support for him. Please consider a contribution to his medical fund. Feel free to forward this to any and all appropriate parties. We are hoping to raise whatever funds we possibly can for Jason. He is currently working on a farm in West Virginia raising goats and chickens for the next year or so, and is looking forward to making great music again. Please also show your support and well wishes by sending letters and postcards to:

Jason Molina
P.O. Box 423
Beaver, WV 25813

If you do not wish to use paypal, please make donations out to Ashley Lawson at the same address.

With our sincere thanks, The Molina Family

So all lovers of beautiful music - let's support Mr. Molina.

Björk in the past doing jazz

Björk's album/app is a whirl of innovation – and the music's beautiful. Listen to Björks new album. And listen to this performance on national icelandic tv from 1990. Björk is singing her jazz together with Tríó Guðmundar Ingólfssonar. These songs are found on Gling-Glo. Björk is trying out her jazz vocals here. At the same time she was still together with The Sugarcubes.
