new Sparklehorse!

apparently, the new long-awaited album by Sparklehorse will be out this September. As I recall, he (Mark Linkous) worked with Dave Fridmann back in 2004 as well as semi-recently with Danger Mouse (apparently the results of the latter collaboration are quite different than Mark's previous works).

well, given the fact that the great joe baressi recorded the upcoming Tool record, its no surprise that such unique pedal stuff was going on. joe is quite the crafty and knowledgable guy when it comes to pedals and guitars. his work with kyuss and the melvins are great examples of amazing guitar ton...
