Sad news, Mark Linkous founder and singer for the group Sparklehorse, which got its start in Richmond, took his own life this past Saturday.

Definitely not mainstream, and definitely on the mellow and melancholy side, Sparklehorse are no doubt an acquired taste. Recently he had worked with critically acclaimed DJ/remixer Danger Mouse and filmmaker David Lynch on a project that ended up going unreleased over record company copyright complaints.
Songs from the project can be heard on NPR's website here: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/stor ... =104129585
 
That is sad news indeed. I just thought about that band he founded just the other day.
