Sparklehorse 'King of Nails'

Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse took his own life last weekend. You'll find tributes in many of the usual places, better informed than this one. I'm no expert, and don't have much by him, but this song from the It's A Wonderful Life album is brilliant and bleak.

Oddly, Sparklehorse did a cover of Galveston... quite nicely too, as I recall.
