One of the biggest losses for music. RIP Jason.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

A real heartbreaking loss. Incredible songwriter. One of those musicians that seemed like he was there for me at low points.

That sucks, RIP. Familiar name but i'm pretty sure I never listened to any of his music.

What is good of his? I like both of the songs in OP.

Probably start with the album Magnolia Electric Co. which was the last one released as Songs: Ohia. If you want more sparse and dark, move back through the Ohia stuff. If you want more rock, move forward through the Magnolia Electric Co. releases. Going that way, be aware that Trials and Errors is a live album.

Good recommendations. I've barely stopped playing his records since reading the news, mainly playing 'Didn't it Rain', 'The Lioness' and 'Ghost Tropic' on repeat (my personal favourites - 'Coxcomb red' is definitely one of my 10 favourite songs), the mood on them seems to fit this moment. But over the last few years the MEC records - 'Fading trails' and 'What comes after the blues' - have probably been my most played of his releases.

Read last night that 'Farewell Transmission' was one of a number of tracks recorded in one take. Jason gathered more and more musicians together one day, taught them the chord sequence and that the song would end when he repeated 'listen' three times and then pressed record.

Much of his recorded output with Magnolia Electric Co is the evidence of him and the band playing his songs for the very first time. It's amazing, really, that it was any good at all, much less so touching and fully realized.

Jason was a unique talent and I will miss him. My heart goes out to all his friends and family, all of you I've met have been good people who did well by Jason.
