Omar Rodriguez Lopez - "Private Fortunes"

omarrodriguez1

With the closing of GSL, Omar Rodriguez Lopez was suddenly left without a home label for his many side projects. Not that he wouldn't have plenty of suiters, but aside from providing a geographical fit, Stones Throw is probably the only label that Lopez could sonically slide seamlessly onto.

Omar Rodriguez Lopez's Old Money is the first album that The Mars Volta guitarist/producer/writer/arranger will release with Stones Throw, officially hitting the streets on January 27, 2009. Claiming to be "the most accessible of his non-Volta recordings," the label debut for Lopez ironically sees him take many more chances as a solo -- and dare I say, jam band -- artist. Taking many twists and turns and using all of his worldly influences (Pink Floyd and Santana can be discerned, a deeper study reveals the cross-continental influence of Israeli garage psych heroes The Churchills, French proggers Ame Son and Magma and Turkish guitar-god Erkin Koray amongst others) and meshing them into a potpourri that sounds perfectly at home next to Madlib's interplanetary ramblings, Gary Wilson's recurring adolescent nightmares and The Stark Reality's fuzzy children's stories.
