The New Boredom

Mah and Newer. Manure.

I tried to write up this thing about the recent death of Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse and how much I will miss new music coming from him in the future. So I’ve been trying to buy up the Sparklehorse albums on vinyl and have maybe been paying a little too much for them. I got one the other day and my boss at work asked if I was buying any more of those “uhh… what is it… Sand Pony records?” and I laughed my ass off.

Anyways, yes I am still buying the records. And I just got In The Fishtank that he did with Christian Fennesz whose previous stuff I wasn’t really that into. But for 20 bucks, who cared. It was Sandpony after all, how could it be bad?

Well, turns out that it isn’t. It’s actually really damn good. It’s mostly like all the noise on previous Sparklehorse albums combined onto one disc and refined. It’s worth a listen and I can’t believe that there are no real reviews of it from major critical sources online. What gives music critics? Are you d-bags at Pitckfork too busy getting boners for The Dirty Projectors to review the last during-life Sparklehorse album?


This has been around as long as the interwebs but it still gets me every time.

  1. man its been a while since I’ve commented…sorry for the slackin.

    I still love that picture. I posted it on my facespace once and people actually thought I was that fat kid. Couldn’t decide if i should have been pumped that people thought i rocked out that young while still be so chubbalicious.

    Regardless, there’s so much crazy shit going on in that photo I can barely wrap my brain around it.
