Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (At The Drive-In/Mars Volta) is in the midst of releasing a series of solo albums via Ipecac Recordings. Azul, Mis Dientes is the 18th album in the series, and the third of a further 12 solo records to be released in 2017.
The previously unreleased albums were recorded from 2008 to 2013, while Rodriguez-Lopez lived in Zapopan, Mexico and as well as his eventual return to El Paso. The titles have been released on a bi-weekly basis.
Not only is Azul, Mis Dientes the 18th album in the series, the release marks Rodriguez-Lopez’s 43rd studio album.
“The best part about having a record label is that you get to choose to work with people that you really admire,” said Ipecac co-owner Greg Werckman. “We had all admired Omar’s work from afar and then recently got to know him up close. It was so great to find out that as talented as he is, he is an even better human being and we love having him as part of the Ipecac family. But, it seems that he has blatantly taken advantage of our friendship. Sure, we were excited to release his solo catalogue… but this many titles? What have we gotten ourselves into?”
Rodriguez-Lopez adds, “It’s crucial in this day and age to be able to surround yourself with like-minded people that you can share an ethos with. I feel grateful and fortunate enough to have found this with such amazing people: Mike, Greg, Shawn, Marc and the Ipecac family. After throwing around many different project ideas, this seemed like the best place to actually begin, on what will surely be a long lasting collaboration.”
“I can’t think of a better home for these records or of another label crazy enough to put out this much material. The series also owes its blood to the hard work and talents of Jon Debaun and Chris Common, who diligently scoured through endless hard drives to find these albums and provide such stellar mixes.”
