Ever since the Gray Album and Gnarls Barkley, I have loved almost everything that Danger Mouse has done. His most recent work is a collaboration with a guy who calls himself Sparklehorse. The album, Dark Night of the Soul, has a ton of people featured on it, including Julian Casablancas, Iggy Pop, Wayne Coyne, Black Francis, and images from David Lynch. Although it is not being released by the label due to legal reasons, so it is being released as a 50 page book of David Lynch’s visual interpretations plus a blank CD-R. The entire cd is all over them internets now.
Danger Mouse got on the map when the legal dispute over releasing the Gray Album forced it to mainly be spread over the web, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a publicity stunt by the label. Whatever the reasons, this is a great album. You can listen to it over at NPR.org. Via Boing Boing.
