Dark Night of the Soul

Although EMI have been holding up the release of the much anticipated Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse), Danger Mouse and David Lynch collaboration 'Dark Night of the Soul,' you can hear the songs recorded for the project, completely free and legal, here (1).

It's fantastic. It's a grotesque cliche to say that someone's music will live on or will be their monument. Nothing makes up for the loss of a human life, even one not as blessed with talent as Mark's was. It's a tragic signal of what he could have gone on to achieve.

Thank you. I shall listen. It really was something of a dream team. What a terrible loss.
