Los Angeles' Derek Rogers performed this live tribute to late Sparklehorse troubadour Mark Linkous on c60 Radio in his former hometown of Austin last year. Moving deftly through passages of bluesy guitar loops, mournful drone, invigorating rhythm, and even harsh noise, Rogers avoids the comfort of genre pigeonholes and instead takes the listener on a journey fueled by raw emotion. Sounds of celebration, confusion, and sadness are all delivered boldly and ultimately add up to a moving and challenging homage to the life of a complex man. Artwork by M.Y.


released June 10, 2011

All tracks recorded/created by DR in May 2010 in Austin, TX, and released in June 2011 on Anathema Sound as release AS37. Special thanks to Franklin Teagle. RIP Mark Linkous.
