El Trio de Omar Rodriguez-Lopez

In today’s post from the “Missed the Boat” files, I bring you new music from the Mars Volta’s, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and his new crew. I’m convinced that he’s our generation’s Frank Zappa. Every three months or so, dude is releasing a new album in a different group. Most recently, he has come together with Mexico City chanteuse, Ximena Sariñana, and Aaron Cruz. The three comprise a El Trio de Omar Rodriguez Lopez and they released an album last February titled, “Ciencia de los Inutiles (Science of the Useless)” . I had seen that the album was another release in Omar’s arsenal of material, but I had overlooked the contributions from the other two parties. The sultry jazzy vocals from Ximena looped with Omar’s acoustic guitar is a formula that I would like to see revisited on many occasions. The style could be easily confused for a Devendra Banhart or Juana Molina , but not as frigid and very little freak outs to be found on the album making it the perfect choice in music to listen to when reading the paper on a Sunday morning. You can pick up the album here and for any of you in the SoCal area, catch Ximena Sariñana open up for Julieta Venegas this Wednesday.
