Molina and Johnson: Tour/Album

MOLINA AND JOHNSON Announce Early 2010 U.S. Tour
Offer Up New MP3, Album Now Available For Pre-Order

Molina and Johnson
It was an all-too-rare alignment of stars that brought prolific, new American songwriters Jason Molina and Will Johnson together some time ago to record the aptly titled Molina and Johnson (set for release on November 3) under the big Texas sky. Lucky for all of us, it will happen again in early 2010 for a full-on, intimate U.S tour. Following a string of European live dates that begin in November, Molina and Johnson will convene in late January to loop from Texas around the Southeast, East Coast and Midwest, returning to the Lone Star State again. On each of the U.S. dates, the duo will be joined by Chris Brokaw (Come/Codeine).

Currently, Johnson is hitting the skins on the Monsters of Folk tour, while Molina just wrapped up a tear across Europe with Magnolia Electric Co.

To go along with the U.S. tour announcement, Molina and Johnson are sharing one of the true-blue duets from their collaboration. Even on an album chock-full of heartbreakers, "Almost Let You In" offers up its fair share of cutting moments. "Granted that I ever, ever stop playing to win, could you find it in the cards to bring me to the light?" is the plea to what could be a woman or a higher being (or both). Mid-song, the atmospheric guitar, acoustic strums and tambourine taps all cut out for the soft rap of fingertips on the body of an acoustic guitar for a moment of real reflection.

Molina and Johnson will be released by Secretly Canadian next week, on November 3 (Nov. 2 in the U.K.) on CD/LP/Digital formats. The album is now available for pre-order HERE.
