Following singer-songwriter Jason Molina's untimely passing on March 16th, Graveface Records has announced the release of Weary Engine Blues, a tribute album featuring tons of singer-songwriters. Confirmed contributions so far include John Vanderslice, Mark Kozelek, Hospital Ships, Lucas Oswald, Jonathan Meiburg, Damien Jurado, Dreamend, Brown Bird, Haunt the House, TW Walsh, Phil Elverum, Alisdair Roberts, Scout Niblett, Jeffrey Lewis, Will Johnson, The Wave Pictures, Allo Darlin, Darren Hayman, Will Oldham, Herman Dune, and many more amazing musicians.
The record will be released on April 23rd as a CD or digital download. The CD will include a screenprint by William Schaff -- seen below -- and the download will include JPEGs of the artwork. The proceeds from the sales will go to covering medical bills and funeral costs. It's available for pre-order here.
