Notes

Exclusive Record Store Day 2016 release.
© & ℗ 2016 Secretly Canadian. Recorded in 2002 Chicago, Illinois.

At a Songs:Ohia show in the early '00s, Jason Molina said to the artist William Schaff that he would love to see himself depicted as one of Schaff's signature, skull-headed creatures. The two struck up a pen-pal friendship and Schaff sent Jason his picture. In return, he asked for a recording of the Townes Van Zandt covers Jason had performed that night. The pair of Van Zandt covers included here, recorded at Molina's home on the north side of Chicago, symbolize not only the creative turn Molina's songwriting had taken (seen in his forthcoming Magnolia Electric Co. release) from sparse and jagged indie rock to rootsy folk rock, but also a sonic bond between two friends who loved each other's work very deeply. After learning of Molina's death in 2013, Schaff spent days pouring over his lengthy correspondence with his friend, with Molina's oeuvre on repeat. He created the painting that graces the cover of this release in the process: Apropos of everything, a skull-headed creature in flight. This special 7" release is limited to 3500 copies worldwide.
