Sparklehorse - Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot
Pop New - LP 51221 Slow River
Sealed 1995 Original. "Sparklehorse’s Debut Has Even More Sad, Beautiful, Weird Moments Of Spacy, Rural Folk-Rock Than It Does Letters In Its Name. Primarily The Project Of Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Mark Linkous, Sparklehorse's Sound Embraces Impossibly Frail, Cobwebby Ballads Like The Album Opener "Homecoming Queen," "Most Beautiful Widow In Town," And "Heart Of Darkness"; Sun-Drenched, Noisy Pop Like "Rainmaker" And "Hammering The Cramps"; And Noise Blasts Like "Ballad Of A Cold Lost Marble" And "850 Double Pumper Holley." The Album's Most Powerful Moments Borrow From Folk And Country Traditions, Alluding To Their Universally Understood Poignancy, While Updating And Personalizing Them With Spacy Arrangements, Distorted Vocals, And Slivers Of Feedback. "Heart Of Darkness" And "Homecoming Queen" In Particular Have A Woozy, Late-Night Sweetness That Conveys A Touching, If Unstable, Honesty. The Single "Someday I Will Treat You Good" Molds This Vulnerability Into A Radio Song, With Catchy And Affecting Results, But It's The Shambling, Understated Songs Like "Saturday" And "Sad & Beautiful World" That Define The Group's Down-To-Earth Melancholy. Despite Covering Some Expansive Musical Territory, Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot Doesn't Sound Scattered So Much As Spontaneous, Reflecting The Happy, Sad, Noisy, And Quiet Moments In Life."

Sparklehorse - Good Morning Spider Good Morning Spider
Pop New - LP plain164 Plain
Sealed 2011 180gm Reissue. "Recorded After Singer/Songwriter Mark Linkous' Accidental, Near-Fatal Drug Reaction And Subsequent 12-Week Stay In London's St. Mary's Hospital, Good Morning Spider Dwells In The Gray Areas Between Dreaming And Waking, Sickness And Health, And Living And Dying. The Album Takes These Grey Areas And Makes A World Out Of Them, Blending Classic Songwriting With An Experimental Sound That Borrows From Hi-Fi And Lo-Fi. It's A Natural Progression From Their Debut, Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot, Which Introduced Sparklehorse's Refreshing Mix Of Classic Songwriting And Sonic Experimentation. Good Morning Spider Adds Bubbling Synths, Ambient Electronics, Horns And Drum Loops To The Mix, Giving Songs Like "Painbirds" An Unclassifiable -- But Distinctively Sparklehorse -- Blend Of Darkness And Childlike Innocence. From Driving, Punky Songs Like "Pig" And "Cruel Sun," To Frail, Winding Ballads Such As "Saint Mary" And "Come On In," To The Experimental Pop Of "Ghost Of His Smile" And "Sunshine," The Album Encompasses A Rainbow Of Sounds And Emotions But Never Loses Focus."
