Spineriders (Jason Molina’s Old Band) • Pitchfork, SPIN, MAGNET, Under the Radar, PopMatters, Line of Best Fit, etc.
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!

Holopaw’s fabulous Academy Songs, Volume I will see release on January 15. It’s an absolutely phenomenal collection of songs and we couldn’t be more elated to be part of it all.
Pitchfork recently listed Holopaw’s Academy Songs, Volume I in it’s “List of records to look forward to in the coming months.” Listen to the singles and B-side below. To note: the LP & CD version have different covers and are included alongside the “Golden Sparklers” b/w “Yearling’s Darlings” 7″ below.
R. Ring recently received a phenomenal feature via Under the Radar. Thanks so much to Frank Valish and UTR for the support!
“And one should not wait on R. Ring. Despite its members acknowledging the wait-and-see dynamic to the project, R. Ring seems to pick up steam with each successive small release… As a pair, the two tracks represent distinct sides of R. Ring, both superbly played and terrifically engaging.”
