When people pass like this, it's always just too sad. Linkous had a lot of problems throughout his life and we can only hope he is at more peace now than he ever was here. As for us he leaves behind, well, we've got some beautiful music that'll warm your bones and for that we are thankful. Sparklehorse were responsible for some truly stunning songs that I've listened to over and over again for many years now. Can songs sometimes feel like friends? I think so.
R.I.P Mark - It's a sad and beautiful world.
