Sparklehorse + Fennesz: In the Fishtank 15

I'm a huge fan of both Sparklehorse and Fennesz individually, so what could bring more joy to my little heart than hearing that they participated in Konkurrent's ongoing "In the Fishtank" series/experiment! If you're familiar with both artists, you pretty much get what you expect, slow, effects laden guitars and vocals from Mark Linkous with slow, effects laden electronic soundscapes from Christian Fennesz. The songs go back and forth from being more Fennesz like to more Sparklehorse like (the last two songs are titled "Mark's Guitar Piece" and "Christian's Guitar Piece"), but that's fine by me. The little touches each one puts on the other's music is quite enjoyable to the ears.
