“Captain Badass” was the first song I heard from Songs: Ohia. I was writing for The Alt (a now defunct Perth-based music magazine that had one of the first mp3 blogs) and was introduced by the editor. Songs: Ohia (and Jason Molina’s solo work, and Magnolia Electric Co.) is still one of my all-time favourites.
