RIP Mark Linkous

Just found out that Sparklehorse front-man Mark Linkous shot himself Saturday. It's A Wonderful Life is one of the most bittersweet songs ever written, and I've been a fan of Linkous' work from the first time I heard it about eight years ago. So by way of tribute, here it is:

The whole album of the same name is one of my favorites and well worth a listen, as is his most recent collaboration with David Lynch and Danger Mouse, Dark Night of the Soul.

This is a low. I guess I should be thankful to have seen him perform. What a loss.

Aw lucky you, I never even got to see him live!

For someone who wrote the perfect songs for when I felt down, it's such a shame he went out like that.
