How do you categorize Omar Rodriguez-Lopez? He’s been a part of the Mars Volta and At The Drive-In, worked with the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ John Frusciante, composed music for recent film The Burning Plain and rocked a thoroughly fabulous ‘fro. Currently a solo performer, Rodriguez-Lopez is about to self-release Xenophanes. Lead single “Mundo De Ciegos” (literally “World Of The Blind”) is a fairly badass mix of Spanish lyrics, heavy riffs and guitar solos that will strip the paint from your walls. So enjoy this number—just plan on doing some redecorating in the near future.
