(LP + 7") Singer/songwriter/guitarist Mark Linkous began working as Sparklehorse in 1995 and, after a demo made its way to the offices of Capitol Records, he got signed to the label. Sparklehorse's 1996 acclaimed debut, Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot, is full of sad, beautiful, weird moments of spacey rural folk-rock and contains the alternative radio hit "Someday I Will Treat You Good". Dreamy arrangements, distorted vocals, and slivers of feedback add to Sparklehorse's down-to-earth melancholy and made it spontaneous, happy, sad, noisy, and quiet; like moments in life. This reissue comes with a bonus 7" containing "Waiting For Nothing" (Ghost Song in the original vinyl version) and "Happy Place."
