Omar Rodriguez Lopez: Telesterion, Live Dates

COMPILATION GATHERS SWEET MEAT FROM MASSIVE SOLO CATALOG

Omar Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In) has announced the spring 2011 release of a quadruple LP / double CD collection culled from his multiple solo and collaborative albums entitled Telesterion. In celebration of this, Rodriguez Lopez's eponymous band will perform at this year's Coachella Festival and SXSW Music Festival (Sargent House/Rodriguez Lopez Productions showcase). Headlining tour dates are also in the works for late spring, to be announced soon.

The extensive 37-song (38 on the vinyl version) Telesterion compilation of the guitarist's work showcases the variety and breadth of explorative artistry spread across his 25 (and counting) solo albums harvested for this release. Telesterion includes a 20-page booklet of artwork and text outlining the scope of his work, with liner notes by longtime friend and Rodriguez Lopez Productions art director Sonny Kay. See Sonny's recollection of their first meeting through to their current collaborations here.

Sample “Locomocion Capillar” here and “Shake is for 8th Graders” here, and all of Rodriguez Lopez’s albums are available for download here. Telesterion will be available everywhere on Record Store Day, April 16th, 2011 via Rodriguez Lopez Productions / Sargent House.
