omar rodriguez lopez reaches into his databank, releases new album

since having been ousted (by bradford cox) as the mayor of i-like-music-but-you-release-way-too-much-stuff-ville with his daily free atlas sound album releases, omar rodriguez lopez has lit a fire under his own ass by releasing a new album dubbed “mantra hiroshima”.

recorded in conjunction with drummer zach hill and bassist juan alderete (the mars volta, vato negro), “mantra hiroshima” is pretty much on schedule for lopez who has been on the one-album-per-month plan. “mantra hiroshima” is very much the proggy, psychedelic, jam session type recording we have come to known from senior lopez.

its hard to say if that “jam session” type recording is worthy of its $6.99 price tag compared to the $0.00 atlas sound “bedroom databank” album-length demos. but let your ears decide for you. roll a fatty and hit the play button below…

omar rodriguez lopez releases another difficult-to-pronounce album

prolific music maker omar rodriguez lopez (one of the mars volta fro bros) has just minutes ago released a(nother) new album.

he surprised his fans via twitter: “happy surprise tuesday release day, new album.”  but honestly, it seems like he releases a new album EVERY tuesday.

the new album is called “tychozorente”.  how do you pronounce that?

“tychozorente” features the vocal work of ximena sarinana rivera, who has collaborated on past omar albums.  there is also a particular absence of guitars on the album (which is omars signature instrument).  despite that, its not quite as noisy and experimental as some of his past guitar-free albums.
