Mark Linkous 1962-2010

Mark Linkous passed away on Saturday at the age of 47. If you haven't heard Mark's work with his band Sparklehorse, I suggest picking up a copy of "It's a Wonderful Life".

Mark had recently collaborated with Danger Mouse and David Lynch on a terrific project called Dark Night of the Soul which features a book of photos by Lynch and performances by The Flaming Lips, Julian Casablancas, Iggy Pop, Frank Black, Vic Chesnutt and others.

You can listen to the Dark Night of the Soul album here at NPR. The Flaming Lips track called "Revenge" is especially nice.

Here's a Pitchfork article about Mark's passing.

And here's Sparklehorse performing "Saturday".
