Some tunes on the next release, Cell Phone Bikini, will be familiar to rabid Omar fans as more of those “Mars Volta Demo” tracks rear their head. Those the lyrics and vocals for the album were arranged by Teri Gender Bender this time around, songs such as “Amarillo” will be unmistakable to anyone who spent some real time with those “demo” tracks. “Amarillo” is also where the album starts to truly take form. It is followed by “Sell Myself In,” another track that entertains the listener from the first second, only to end with a blaring guitar solo that ends all too soon.

Cell Phone Bikini’s main weakness is that it takes its time to really get going. Once it does, it doesn’t slow down, almost coming off like a mimic of the first of these solo releases — Sworn Virgins sans the electro overtones. It even plays games lyrically in an almost traditional Omar fashion, sharing lyrics across songs between the tracks “Wolf” and “Kisses are Fishes.” It does feel that maybe the album would perform a little better as an EP, cutting out the opening two tracks and starting with “Amarillo,” but I’m not going to complain or shun the entire thing for a few so-so tracks. It’s a rarity for an album from any artist to be filled exclusively with standout hits. By this point, Omar has hit us with six stellar releases, so two or three tracks is not about to bring me down.

 

 

So...any guesses which demos might these be?

i don't think it's any of the noctourniquet outtakes since it says "sans the electro overtones" so that'd really only leave the acoustic one right?

If it's not the Noct outtakes then it must be this right?

I just want an album with Zach Hill. Tired of these pop songs about relationships.

I imagine you are right with Teri on vocals?  Could be cool.

I can see "clouds" be released on one of ORL albums, because it was played instrumentally in 2010 on ORL shows. So its possible that Cedric's vocals would be cut, but i dont really see why would he do that if they are friends again but then again that would be a tmv song on an omar release but then again its omar and he is more complicated than all the time travelling shit in BTTF

One of my favorites from the leaks. I like it as an instrumental, would like a better quality version though. I know it has been said/confirmed it's Pridgeon on drums, but I still think it sounds like Marcel. If it's Pridgeon that's his most restrained performance while with Omar/TMV.

Definitely Thomas. It's from the Octahedron sessions. But I'm guessing the version on this album doesn't have Thomas since Matt said it's pretty different.

Well how can we be sure that it is the track that will be released?
All the other tracks from the leaks are released?

Omar has no interest in paying Thomas for any royalties

Thats why he will release it with Thomas on drums without paying royalites just like on equinox or just like Adrian on Woman gives birth...

Thomes was considered a session drummer so hasn't he technically already been paid? Couldn't Omar release thomas stuff without paying him since he was already paid?

I'm probably wrong but that's how I look at it.
