Molina and Johnson Finally Set Up North Texas Tour Stop, Offer Up New MP3

Earlier this month, we passed along news of the release date for Centro-matic frontman Will Johnson's collaboration with Magnolia Electric Co.'s Jason Molina called...wait for it... Molina and Johnson. Well, with under a week remaining until the release of the tandem's self-titled debut, the band has finally announced a stop in Johnson's native North Texas: On February 12, the duo will play Dan's Silverleaf as the second-to-last stop on its three-week-long U.S. tour.

In the meantime, you'll just have to purchase the record to tide you over. But, since you can't get the record until Tuesday, well, the band was kind enough to pass along another mp3 to whet your appetites in the meantime. Stream and download "Almost Let You In" after the jump.

Bonus MP3: Molina and Johnson -- "Almost Let You In"

Gorgeous. And that complete halt that comes about two-thirds of the way into the song? It's like a study in confident songwriting.
