Omar Rodriguez-Lopez releases solo ‘best of’, Telesterion

Despite only being 35 years of age, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez has had a fairly prolific music career. Ok, an absolutely incredible music career. Spanning some 16 years, he’s made 40 albums between his efforts with The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In, and as a solo entity. Most of us are pretty familiar with the first two projects, but in case you missed any of his 25 solo albums, Rodriguez-Lopez is releasing a quadruple LP/double CD collection entitled Telesterion. Take that, every other “best of” collection.

Due for release on April 19th, the 37-song release (which features a bonus track on the vinyl edition) also includes a 20-page booklet of artwork and a career retrospective by Rodriguez-Lopez’s longtime collaborator Sonny Kay.

Prior to the LP’s release, you can catch Rodriguez-Lopez playing a few U.S. dates, including ones at South by South West and Coachella. Telesterion hits stores April 19th via Rodriguez Lopez Productions.
