Sparklehorse : Gold Day

Sparklehorse have once more made the unexpected something you can't live without.

Sparklehorse : Gold Day

As musical couplings go, this is the most unpredictable since Kylie writhed around prince of darkness, Nick Cave. Here, The Cardigans' sunny, Swedish singer Nina Persson cosies up with the famously reclusive, vaguely peculiar Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse. Beautifully understated, Nina's almost inaudible among the flute and strings as she softly joins Mark for a chorus to melt even the hardest heart. Less bleak than some imagine Linkous to be and more magical than even he's managed previously, Sparklehorse have once more made the unexpected something you can't live without.
