Omar Rodriguez-Lopez - Please Heat This Eventually (with Damo Suzuki) 2006, EP
7.9
Psychedelic Prog Post Rock
Nice! Imagine an Elvis-like vocalist from Japan together with the psychedelic, odd-harmonic improvising of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez ... in a 20+ minutes long epic track that seems like an endless loop, but actually shifts through different moods and sonic landscapes ... sometimes with the kind of free-jazz saxophone outbursts we know from the Mars Volta albums, sometimes more focusing on the groove with sparse instrumentation.

Strongly recommended to all TMV fans ... it's only available on vinyl, but the EP looks truly awesome - both the cover art and the disc itself, which comes in transparent blue.
