Adam Wiltzie of ambient drone projects Stars of the Lid and A Winged Victory for the Sullen paid tribute to the passing of Mark Linkous 7 years ago on twitter.
Linkous, who performed under the name Sparklehorse, released a string of lonely, existential indie rock albums, and collaborations with electronic musician Fennesz before he committed suicide in 2010. Wiltzie was once a sound engineer for Sparklehorse, and gave out the tribute on twitter along with a link to Sparklehorse’s 1995 album Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot on Spotify.
“Missing this guy today, 7 years ago Sparklehorse’s Mark Linkous left earth. Time to put on his VivaDixie masterpiece”.
