RIP Mark Linkous

Mark Linkous, the driving force behind Sparklehorse, has died, reportedly by suicide. Sparklehorse didn't have a ton of mainstream success, but were well-regarded by critics. Here's their one modern-rock hit, "Someday I will Treat You Good," which hit #35 in 1996.

While catchy, that song isn't that representative of Linkous' entire output, which often seemed to split the difference between Mercury Rev and the Eels.
