This man is a musical genius! It's Omar and he will blow your mind with his music. He has led a very interesting life, once even being a librarian selling acid. His first big band was At The Drive In, which if you like that type of music (hardcore stuff) then by all means, however after that he dabbled with dub for a bit before finally The Mars Volta was created. Now if you haven't heard of them I suggest you check them out, but be warned their albums vary greatly so if you don't like some try another album. The reason I am posting is not for the stuff he did in these bands, but the crazy stuff he pumps out as a solo artist. So far he has put out over 17 albums since 2004, and another coming out Oct 4th. That is just insane and he says he has enough material for many more releases. Now if you want to try this musical god out I suggest you try the albums; Se Dice Bisonte, No Bùfalo, Calibration (Is Pushing Luck and Key Too Far), Ciencia de los Inútiles, and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez & Lydia Lunch.
Now much of it is in Spanish, but I can still enjoy it plenty even though I dont speak much of it.
I have been stuck on Ciencia de los Inútiles as of late and always have the vinyl spinning in my room saranding me. Here is a song off of it, allow it to take you to lala land like it will for me tonight.
