Dark Night of the Soul – Danger Mouse & Sparklehorse (US release: 13 Jul 2010)
The last album from Mark “Sparklehorse” Linkous, who committed suicide in March. A sometimes somber – but always beautiful – collection featuring various guests, including Flaming Lips (on the above track), Suzanne Vega, Iggy Pop, Vic Chesnutt, among others. Enjoy!
