A joke. ORL & JMW was strange, but cool. This is only bored, the same shit again and again.

Omar piss us.

Congratulations to all vinyl buyers.

Edit:

Written, Performed and Produced by Omar Rodriguez Lopez

Fans of THE MARS VOLTA will undoubtedly be aware of Omar Rodriguez Lopez’s visit to Israel in 2006, an event with great influence and repercussions on that band’s 2008 album, The Bedlam in Goliath. Returning with a “talking board” which he presented as a gift to his songwriting partner, Cedric Bixler Zavala, the pair soon found themselves at the center of a series of strange and somewhat negative phenomena resulting, as Rodriguez Lopez has insisted, from the presence of the board as well as the overwhleming darkness of his life during the post-Israel months. Prior to beginning the studio sessions for Bedlam…, Rodriguez Lopez recorded Despair, a nihilistic and disturbing meditation on his experiences in and around Jerusalem culled from field recordings and studio experimentation. A nightmarish pastiche of drones, noise, feedback, and unrecognizable audio hallucinations, Rodriguez Lopez has, appropriately, compared the experience of listening to the album as not unlike that of a “bad acid trip”. Cryptic titles such as “Liebe Ist Kälter Als Der Tod” and “Angst Vor Der Angst” provide little clue for the non-German speaker of what the various compositions have in store, an intentional suggestion of the disorientation and anxiety housed within the record’s grooves. Despair challenges the listener and no will no doubt be divisive amongst Volta fans.

Unique?

This album could be made 50 years ago by experimental electronic composers.

I agree that most of this type of music could be made YEARS and years ago by Stockhausen, Cage...anyone, really... I just can't wait to hear Despair!

True, I'm reversing tracks and sounds a clearlier creeping distorsionated voice, like arabesque singing. Later I'll upload the full backwards album. Lol.

I've just uploaded my backwards Despair (or in the correct way), PM me for the link. I've reversed the tracks order and the titles too.

It gets more disturbing.
