“Dark Night Of The Soul” was originally the title of a 16th century spiritual work by a Christian monk describing the painful journey made after life into the eternal love of God. But we can set that aside now, for after a long dispute with their record label, this ineffable album by Danger Mouse and the late Sparklehorse has come to light.

The good news is tempered only by the loss of Mark Linkous, aka Sparklehorse, who shot himself (in the heart) earlier this year. The album is dedicated to him and Vic Chesnutt who is featured on the track “Grim Augury.”

The roster of other collaborators on the record reads like someone’s fantasy bucket list. The Flaming Lips, Gruff Rhys, Jason Lytle, Julian Casablancas, Black Francis, Iggy Pop, James Mercer, Nina Persson, Suzanne Vega and David Lynch are all featured.

Dig this sweet album teaser directed by Eno:

Here’s the full track list and who’s who on those “chapters” in the video.

1. Revenge 4:58 — featuring The Flaming Lips
2. Just War 3:48 — featuring Gruf Rhys from Super Furry Animals
3. Jaykub 3:57 — featuring Jason Lytle from Grandaddy
4. Little Girl 4:37 — featuring Julian Casablancas from the Strokes
5. Angels Harp 3:00 — featuring Black Francis from The Pixies
6. Pain 2:55 — featuring Iggy Pop
7. Star Eyes (I Can’t Catch It) 3:15 — featuring David Lynch
8. Everytime I’m With You 3:16 — featuring Jason Lytle from Grandaddy
9. Insane Lullaby 3:14 — featuring James Mercer from the Shins/Broken Bells
10. Daddy’s Gone 3:12 — featuring Mark Linkous and Nina Persson from The Cardigans
11. The Man Who Played God 3:14 — featuring Suzanne Vega
12. Grim Augury 2:35 — featuring Vic Chesnutt
13. Dark Night Of the Soul 4:39 — featuring David Lynch

You’ll notice David Lynch is featured on two of them, including the haunting, old-timey title track. Aside from collaborating musically, Lynch also created a series of photographs inspired by the music, for the music. You can see a couple here and full series comes in a 12″ photo book that comes with the box set. Visuals to accompany your listening experience:

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
