In memory of the late Jasona Molina, a new tribute compilation will be out April 22 through non-profit label Rock the Cause. Titled Farewell Transmission: The Music of Jason Molina, it features My Morning Jacket, Murder by Death, Wooden Wand, Sarah Jaffe, the Black Swans, Bottomless Pit, and more. Above, listen to My Morning Jacket’s cover of Songs: Ohia’s “Farewell Transmission”. Frontman Jim James also appears on another track on the album, collaborating with Bro Stephen on a cover of “Almost Was Good Enough”.
Farewell Transmission also features a new song, “Arm in Arm” by Molina’s former bandmates under the name Memorial Electric Company, as well as a previously unrecorded track called “Trouble in Mind (Fade to Blue)”, which was a live favorite of Molina’s.
A portion of the proceeds from Farewell Transmission will go to MusiCares, which supports artists dealing with depression, addiction, disability, and other health issues. Another portion of the proceeds will go to Molina’s family.
On March 15, in support of the compilation, Memorial Electric Company will perform at the Church on York in L.A.
