California’s Stones Throw Records has announced the release of The Mars Volta guitarist/producer/writer/arranger Omar Rodriguez Lopez‘s first album with the label, Old Money. A digital download of the album is exclusively available now at the Stones Throw Store with an offical release date for the actual album set for January 27. A word from the label:
"The addictive melodies and passionate execution of each performance render Old Money perhaps the most accessible of his non-Volta recordings, and the perfect entry point to anyone not yet familiar with what this prolific artist has to offer. Loosely based on the concept of exploitative industrialists and, well, their old money, the album presents a 10-track collection of concise rock compositions, which range from progressive to psychedelic to downright funky."
