At The Drive-In
in•ter a•li•a

Resuming transmission after 20 years 'off' (they were of course playing in myriad bands such as the Mars Volta) are turn of the century intense noise thrashers At The Drive In.

Crystal Fairy
Crystal Fairy

Crystal Fairy is pretty much a heavy-and-complex-music supergroup, including two Melvins, Teri Gender Bender of Le Butcherettes and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of The Mars Volta and At The Drive-In. Christ. Naturally, this muscular ble...view item »

Faust & Omar Rodriguez Lopez
Live At Clouds Hill

This is a live collaboration between the long running German experimenters and the frizzy haired At The Drive In / Mars Volta twiddler. The only real surprise that it takes them almost four minutes to get the bloody chainsaw out. What we have instead is scattershot free drumming, eer...view item »

Once again, Ximena Sariñana Rivera is at the helm sin...view item »

Omar Rodriguez Lopez
Xenophanes

I am a big fan of Omar, but mostly in the context of the Mars Volta and At the Drive-In. I love each of their albums, and I think that the man is a genius. This is truly a gem and it is much more song-oriented than the rest of Omar's solo work (see Calibration and Apocalypse)...view item »

Omar Rodriguez Lopez And Jeremy Michael Ward
Omar A Rodriguez Lopez and Jeremy Michael Ward

This could very well be catalogued as a classical music album purely because of its remarkable similarities in sound to early electronic music. This is true electronic noise composition done by two very good musicians. There is no rocking guitar or memorable melodies on this album, and it is an album purely for those who want to hear everything Oma...view item »
