I spent monday and tuesday with Omar making media promo for Xenophanes: Mexican radio, TV and magazines.

We played some tracks on the radio, with some not mastered versions of it. Yes, it's coming out in september, it's gonna be distributed via Universal Music here in Mexico, mostly. It's a great album, indeed.. very interesting... there's gonna be a video release of the first single, also for september.

All lyrics are in spanish, and most of the singing is done by Omar.

The band includes:

-Thomas Pridgen, drums
-Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez
-Juan Alderete, bass
-Mark Aanderud, piano/synths
-Ximena Sariñana, voices

The intention is for spanish-speaking public to have this spanish-lyrics record. Distribution in Mexico and possibly Latin America is going to be via Universal Music and with Rodriguez Lopez Productions seal on it. The intention to edit this record in Mexico for Mexico is to lower the prices, cause all of Omar's CD's are imported from US, mostly.

Don't worry it's legit. The thing is that this information is really really new. Omar finished mixing this record last thursday or friday. It's not even mastered yet. We did a lot of press in Mexico City, because we're looking for this CD sung in spanish to be a big deal here in Mexico. I'm working with a Universal Music Mexico label manager, but are kinda doing this aside from Universal who are only going to make the physical CD's and distribute them in stores. We had a couple of very cool days, I met Omar before twice, but until now we had the chance to begin working with him.

wow, that's wonderful, man. kudos to you. i bet everyone here would kill to work with Omar.
in my opinion, such CD can definitely sell in large numbers in your country. Ximena has also a lot of fans there, hasn't she?
in addition, i know a lot of people who don't listen to music in English because they say they can't understand the lyrics. that's obviously terrible, and doesn't exactly prove that they have quite a high level of education.
in spite of everything, i guess Omar will reach many more people that way for these reasons, and also from showing his love to the country where he's currently living (remember his opinions about swine flu and Mexico...).

will Omar fans from the rest of the world be able to find Xenophanes in the stores as well?

Hmm... Kinda worried about Omar singing... Is it good? Never been good in the past.

Any chance for a stream or anything of what was played on the radio?

I'm not quite sure... but the most probable thing is that it will be available everywhere via Rodriguez Lopez Productions

Personally I've never heard him singing before... I think it is good.

No streams yet... it still needs to be mastered.

i happen to like omar's singing in Calibration, for example
perhaps too many effects on his voice in my opinion, but whatever

thanks again, youbitch. btw, listen to Calibration if you haven't.

omar can actually hold his own vocally
just listen to lick the til ting poppies off calibration

though there's probably a bit of tuning on the vocals just to make it sounds prettier

can you tell us what the album sounds like? is it latin or salsa music? i hope soooo........
