Dark Night of the Soul
...is what I'm currently listening to...
and enjoying every nook and cranny so far...and maybe being nicely creeped out a bit.
The ingredients: Sparklehorse (the late Mark Linkous) + Danger Mouse + David Lynch - each spearheading a dark dreamy minimalist pop album that culls indie aristocracy such as Grandaddy's Jason Lytle, The Pixies' Frank Black, Super Furry Animal's Gruff Rhys, Neutral Milk Hotel's/Gerbil's David Spillane, the Flaming Lips and many more...
While some moments definitely feel lost in "the red room" creepiness, as sung/narrated (via heavy reverb) by Lynch himself, the entries offered by Lytle and Rhys are mesmerizing.
Read Jonathan Berz's review in Real Detroit and click to NPR right now to see if you can still listen to it.
