Though it seems like just yesterday, eight years have slipped by since the passing of Mark Linkous, the prolific and openhearted musician better known as Sparklehorse. Though Linkous’ estate blocked a charity tribute album to him, back in 2015, a trickle of homages have rolled in, most recently a solid cover from Diiv.

Among the vast catalog of Linkous collaborators, John Parish and PJ Harvey sit among the most notable. Today, Parish and Harvey, longtime collaborators in their own right, release the single “Sorry For Your Loss,” a direct salutation to Linkous. The track arrives with the announcement of a new Parish album, Bird Dog Dante, an album he worked on while touring with Harvey as part of her band. Bouncing ideas off each other, and each of them close to Linkous, the two reportedly found it only natural to sing this as a duet.

The track plays with unexpected contrasts, fusing folky mandolin and toms with thick bass and a squealing electric guitar. A slight departure from Parish’s recent, largely instrumental work, this new record veers more toward actual songs. “The sun never felt colder/The window rattled and I wondered if you just passed over,” he sings with Harvey, feeling the very spirit of Linkous in their bones.

Listen to “Sorry For Your Loss” below. Parish’s Bird Dog Dante emerges through the venerable Thrill Jockey label on June 15

^ To me it's interesting, but you probably need to be a fan of Parish's music (eg. DHALP and AWAMWB). I happen to like his quirky chord changes. Some of it is pretty atonal (track 4, instrumental "Let's go") and wouldn't appeal to many. Same for instrumental track 9 "Le Pass Devant Nous".

Track 1, "Add to the list" actually reminds me a bit of John Lennon. The tracks with vocals are mostly in a folksy style, like the Spin article indicates. The instrumentals are rather experimental. Instrumental Track 7 "Buffalo" is like a science fiction movie sound track music with some murky chanting going on - quirky stuff. Track 8 "Kieru", an electronic style instrumental is even more experimental. Track 10 "Carver's House" sounds like a horror movie sound track. Track 11 "The First Star" is probably the closest to being like traditional rock and roll,

If you have adventuresome musical tastes you should give the album a try.

You can listen to all the tracks here:
