Item Description
Goshen Electric Co is Tim Showalter (of Strand of Oaks) and the original line up who backed Jason Molina in Magnolia Electric Co. · Limited to 1000 copies worldwide - when it's gone, it's gone. · Featuring exclusive artwork by frequent Jason Molina collaborator William Schaff. Goshen Electric Co. happened both all at once and gradually: an electrifying culmination of Tim Showalter's nearly two decadeslong love affair with Jason Molina's craft, and just one half-day in the recording studio with the members of Magnolia Electric Co. Better known as Strand of Oaks, Showalter's turn at the helm of Magnolia Electric Co. (Mike Benner, Jason Evans Groth, Mikey Kapinus, Mark Rice, Peter Schreiner) comes ahead of the Goshen, In. native's Memorial Electric Co. European tour. The resulting 7-in. shows a sweeping range: "The Gray Tower," a 2002 single, and "Ring the Bell," which appeared on both Songs: Ohia's Didn't It Rain (2002) and Magnolia Electric Co.'s Trials &
Errors (2005). "Ring the Bell," recorded in one take, roars in with a twinge of psychedelia,
thrumming with vibe; Showalter's wail recalls Molina's somber, choir-boy croon, but
roughened with sandpaper. The prophetic, dystopian darkness of "The Gray Tower"
captures the original soaring chorus and delicate melody with the power of a full band.
Decades later, the intense, unflinching urgency of Molina's songwriting endures. "There
was such an intimate relationship with his music - it felt a lot deeper than just liking a
song," says Showalter. "You live in these songs."
