    Immensely prolific Grammy Award=winning recording artist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In) will release a quadruple LP / double CD collection culled from his multiple solo and collaborative albums. The releases are due this Spring. In celebration of this, Rodriguez-Lopez's eponymous band will perform at this year's Coachella Festival and SXSW Music Festival at the Sargent House/Rodriguez Lopez Productions showcase. Headlining tour dates are also in the works for late spring, to be announced soon, so watch this space for more info.

    The extensive 37-song (38 on the vinyl version) compilation of the guitarist's work, titled Telesterion showcases the variety and breadth of explorative artistry spread across his 25 (and counting) solo albums harvested for this release. For those unsure where to begin discovering Omar's vast catalog, this is a fitting introduction. Telesterion includes a 20-page booklet of artwork and text outlining the scope of his work, with liner notes by longtime friend and Rodriguez Lopez Productions art director Sonny Kay.
