Sparklehorse tribute

Mark Linkous, the man behind Sparklehorse, committed suicide in 2010, and now Box Of Stars, a nonprofit that raises mental health awareness, hopes to honor him with a new tribute album called Last Box Of Sparklers. If it reaches its $50k goal, the crowdfunded compilation will include Linkous admirers and contemporaries; right now, the lineup of contributors stands to include Mercury Rev, Mark Lanegan, Califone, and Phantogram. And below, you can hear two very different tracks from the comp: The Flaming Lips’ woolly and psychedelic version of “It’s A Sad And Beautiful World” and the Joy Formidable’s sprawling, heavy take on “Gold Day.” Listen to both.
