Some late ’90s-recorded Black Sabbath covers by Jason Molina are getting released on a 7″ through Secretly Canadian. The late Molina covers “Solitude” and “Snowblind” on the A-side, while the B-side features an etching. The 7″ is currently sold out at the webstore, but Amazon still has it.
This pair of newly discovered, home-recorded Black Sabbath covers is no different. Molina, a through-and-through fan of metal (seek out his high school metal band the Spineriders’ album if you haven’t yet) peels back the sinister and stoned elements of Sabbath, zeroing in on the loneliness and brooding.
The 7″ is being released on Nov. 24. They previously released a set of Townes Van Zandt covers on a 7″.
