Spineriders—the old band of the late, great Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co)—has seen some phenomenal press (some below). Misra co-released Spineriders Hello Future Tinglies with Aquabear Legion. AB is the Athens-OH based art collective of Molina’s boyhood friend and Spineriders/Songs: Ohia founding member Todd Jacops + Lorain, OH native/Admiral King H.S. Alum (Molina’s boyhood home/alma mater) Brian Koscho. Spineriders drummer Carl Raponi made some prints for the occasion (on sale as well) and provided some (forthcoming) video footage.

We pressed the album on cassette—an effort to stay true to the times in which this music was made. There are only 300 of these puppies in existence and they are going quick. Head here to purchase and support. All proceeds to Musicians Emergency Medical Association (memafund.org). 

Spineriders plugged via Magnolia Electric Co + KEXP + Under the Radar + The Line of Best Fit + Exclaim!

Spineriders (the old band of Jason Molina) have been getting more love. Misra is releasing Spineriders “Hello Future Tinglies” (MSR070) on cassette on 8/27. All proceeds to Musicians Emergency Medical Association. Head to the Misra Store and support a great cause! Once this artifact becomes a rarity (pressing of 300), sell it and donate again!
