Too bad to this the year of quirky, depressed musical genius's committing suicide?! I don't know enough of his music but everything I've heard - mostly Good Morning Spider and It's a Wonderful Life is gorgeous, smart, and pretty fraught with indications of a depressed, dark dude. Gonna go spin me some 'Hundreds of Sparrows' and maybe some old Vic Chestnut too...

Well, that just sucks.

Agreed. I've been listening to his stuff since the Dancing Hoods' 12 Jealous Roses came out.
