Eight Gates

Sometime in 2006 or 2007, Jason Molina moved from the midwest to London. Separated from his bandmates and friends, Molina explored his new home with fervor. His adoration of The Great American Tall Tales like John Henry and Paul Bunyan's blue ox Babe stretched across the Atlantic, where he created his own personal Tall Tales. And when he learned of the London Wall's seven gates (itself a misconception), Molina went ahead and called it eight, carving out a gate just for himself. The eighth gate was Molina's way into London, a gate only passable in the mind. Eight Gates is the last collection of solo studio recordings Molina made before he passed from complications related to alcoholism in 2013. Recorded in London around the time of the supposed spider bite and Jimi's supposed parakeets, some of the songs are fully-realized — dark, moody textures that call to mind his earlier work on The Lioness.
