Stereogum Premieres First Track From "Cryptomnesia!"

huge thanks to the entire Stereogum staff for their support!

New El Grupo Nuevo De Omar Rodriguez Lopez - "Half Kleptos" (Stereogum Premiere)

Omar Rodríguez-López has a new band. The Mars Volta songwriter/multi-instrumentalist is calling it El Grupo Nuevo de Omar Rodríguez-López because it rolls off the tongue but he could also call it Hella Volta. That's because alongside Omar the psych/prog/fusion outfit features Hella's Zach Hill and Jonathan Hischke on drums and synth bass and Mars Volta's Juan Alderete and Cedric Bixler-Zavala on bass guitar and vocals. Basically El Grupo is designed to kick your ass.
