KEXP Suggests – Sparklehorse!

Check out this video for “It’s A Wonderful Life” by Sparklehorse. It’s from their 2001 album of the same name. After what seems like forever, they have released a new record…

“The 1st album in 5 years from Mark Linkous & co. is a stunning return to form. After highly publicized battles with depression and addiction, Linkous is back with another magical batch of heartbreakingly sad and utterly sublime songs blending folk-pop, psychedelia and experimental electronics. Some special guests contribute, including Danger Mouse, Christian Fennesz, Tom Waits, Dave Fridmann, and the Flaming Lips’ Stephen Drozd, but as always with Sparklehorse, this is Linkous’s show, and it’s one of his best to date.” – Don Yates

Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain is out now. Stream two songs from the record at their MySpace page.

Sparklehorse are currently touring in Europe with many upcoming shows throughout Great Britain and France.
