Goodnight Sparklehorse

Musician and Surrealist-Shapeshifter, Mark Linkous takes his life last night. We wish him well on his journey and look for him among the Stars. Mark's music has always taken one to an opiate hazed dream world, with slowed down bouyance, and lustful deep longing. A staunch collaborator, who recently gave us Dark Night of the Soul, with David Lynch, Danger Mouse, Iggy Pop, Nina Presson, Julian Casablancas  (among others) still awaits a physical release due to contractual calamity. Linkous has long collaborated with dark stars, such as Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, the Flaming lips and Suzanne Vega. Word has it, he has left us with a nearly completed album. Sleep well...
