This is perhaps the project of the year. Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse have combined forces along with cult (and beloved) director David Lynch in a dark, mystical and alluring album. Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse provide the melodies, a set of guest artists the vocals and Davil Lycnh the 100+ page artwork, which will be exhibited in the Michael Kohn Gallery in LA.
Amongst the guest vocal in the album you can find James Mercer of The Shins, The Flaming Lips, Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals, Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, Julian Casablancas of The Strokes, Frank Black of the Pixies, Iggy Pop, Nina Persson of The Cardigans, Suzanne Vega, Vic Chesnutt, David Lynch, and Scott Spillane of Neutral Milk Hotel. Quite an impressive list for a more than impressive album. You can order the book online, although it is currently shipped with a blank CD (due to legal dispute of Danger Mouse and EMI label). However, you can stream the whole album for free from here!
