Boomkat Product Review:
Recorded at four different locations ranging from Jason Molina's own home to the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, 'Fading Trails' features production work from the likes of Steve Albini and Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven's David Lowery. Regardless of the disparate recording scenarios that contributed to the album's completion, what we have here is a very complete, full-bodied follow up to last year's superb "What Comes After The Blues" LP. The first three songs form a triptych of Neil Young-tinged country rock, with 'Lonesome Valley' a real highlight, its upright piano lines adding a dusty, old fashioned authenticity. Midway through the album, 'The Old Horizon' revisits the chilling intimacy of Molina's recent solo album, Let Me Go, Let Me Go, Let Me Go, its sparse, reverberating piano chords providing a humble backdrop for Molina's intense, damaged vocal. This sombre setting is reprised for the final two songs, 'Spanish Moon Fall And Rise' and 'Steady Now', hiss-heavy acoustic blues numbers with all the more potency for their lack of adornment. As bleak as they are beautiful, they provide a fitting close to another maudlin gem from Jason Molina. Highly recommended.
