according to this, it's going to be a 2 disc set.

50 bucks is pretty steep for two CDs

dont shoot me for posting this. i emailed secretly canadian about it and this is the response i got.

The Sojourner boxset is the accumulated work of thirteen musicians, five locations, four recording engineers, three filmmakers, two designers and one songwriter, including enough material for three full lengths, one EP and one DVD. The boxset includes 4 CDs a DVD, a poster, postcards and a medallion.

The four CDs that are included in the boxset are from four distinct recording sessions that Magnolia  Electric Co recorded following the release of their debut studio album What Comes After The Blues.  The session known as Nashville Moon was recorded by Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio studios in Chicago, Illinois. The session known as Sun Sessions was recorded at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. The session known as Black Ram was recorded by David Lowery at his Sound Of Music studios in Richmond, Virginia and features an entirely different cast of characters including Lowery, Rick Alverson, Andrew Bird, Molly Blackbird, Miguel Urbiztondo and Alan Weatherhead. The session known as Shohola was recorded by Jason Molina alone, with a guitar and microphone. The Road Becomes What You Leave is a film produced by Todd Chandler and Tim Sutton. It follows the band as they tour across the prairie provinces of Canada and shows the loneliness and isolation one can feel even when traveling in a pack.

The release date is August 7.

it's official now. this has been in the planning stages for awhile (if you couldn't tell by the extent of it - i mean, a dvd and a frickin' medallion?!) these are the albums as they were conceived and recorded.

jason promised in the q&a that secretly canadian would be doing something special, that only they could do. i hope you all agree that they have.

a few more details - it's limited to 5,000 copies. there will EVENTUALLY be vinyl, but it'll be awhile. no word on whether the dvd will make it to viewmaster.
