"Still Nobodies" = "Nobodies" from A Lovejoy.

 

He already re-releases stuff that wasn't even released yet.

 

And he keeps adding vocals to songs that originally were instrumental.

 

Maybe we will get Old Money with vocals?

Whoa interesting stuff ! I like the sampled voices on Bitter tears, and this synthy bass here and there reminds me of some sounds used by Frusciante.

Is it Deantoni on all the songs ? some sound a bit too "simple" for his style. Well at least Soulless doubts and To need something are definitely him.

It seems like an easy access album while being difficult to grasp in essence if it makes any sense. Really pop-rock by time, with some songs still being Omar-ish experimental stuff.

I'd rather talk more about why ideas/songs are getting recycled rather than the fact that they're getting recycled at all.

Is it because when Chris and Jon were going through the hard drives they felt these re-used tracks meshed with these new albums?

Were these tracks actually apart of the same sessions that both this new album and the album the track was first released with?

Were these tracks originally apart of the sessions these new albums came from and the older albums actually pulled from that?

"He Gave Me a Key to Nothing" has a riff very similar to "La Hysteria". Might be it, actually - but to me it sounds just slightly different.

i think its because omar is trying to rebrand himself with these albums. the older albums are basically rare, out of print items now. the majority of them are nowhere to be found in any official context. especially the later stuff. i feel like omar has lots and lots of songs and some of them are from sessions that definitely belong together, and then the album needs to be filled out some and more songs that fit that vibe are added to it. i feel like the album as a whole represents more than the individual songs for him. perhaps these songs that we hear being re-used were just made around the same time as the other new songs on the album that we didnt previously know about, and as omar says, his albums are like a snapshot of a time in his life

 

it could also just be having multiple versions of songs. like omar had el bien sitting there alongside un escorpion. he felt both were worth release. so he did it. etc

i don't think there is one singular reason, it depends on each track/album and its context

 

some of my favourite bands only release new music once every few years so i really couldnt give a shit if 10% of these 24 albums has already been released in a different form. it's still a different beast. context changes everything.

 

also To Need Something (Células Hermosas) didnt have deantoni drumming on it before :D
