may all your days be gold, my child

Mark Linkous, better known as Sparklehorse, committed suicide over the weekend.  My favourite songs of his have always been quiet, like “Gold Day” and “It’s a Wonderful Life,” tiny happy-sad chamber pop pieces.  “Gold Day” features Nina Persson from the Cardigans, and is as beautiful a benediction as a pop song can be in four minutes.
