BLAST FROM THE PAST: SPIN MAGAZINE INTERVIEWS EDAN ABOUT RECORDING SONGS:OHIA'S "DIDN'T IT RAIN."

Back in the early 2000s, Edan owned a recording studio in North Philly called Soundgun. Many kick-ass artists recorded there, from Slo-Mo to Marah to Josh Ritter to The Constantines. Perhaps the most famous record Edan engineered was "Didn't It Rain," by Songs:Ohia, who would later change their name to Magnolia Electric Company.

Jason Molina, the force behind Songs:Ohia, tragically passed away this year at the age of 39. There has been renewed interest in his music since his label, Secretly Canadian, has begun reissuing his back catalog in honor of his passing.
