Playlist: Sparklehorse

Mark LinkousLike everyone else in the world with ears and hearts we were awfully saddened by the death of Sparklehorse frontman Mark Linkous.

Rolling Stone are running a great piece on their website with lots of touching quotes and a pretty comprehensive overview of one of this generations greatest artists. Read online.

Mark Linkous gave us the sadly prophetic song “Heart Of Darkness” track for our first alt country compilation “Cowpunks” and we’ve been fans to this day.

Rather than a picked playlist, this weeks tape is the 2001 It’s a Beautiful Life album in it’s entirety.

Tune in now.
