Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (At The Drive-In/Mars Volta) is in the midst of releasing a series of solo albums via Ipecac Recordings. Weekly Mansions is the ninth album in the series.

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 12 titles will be released on a bi-weekly basis with the first spate of albums running through the end of the 2016.

Weekly Mansions is an eclectic exploration of neo-electro-dance, co-written between Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and his brother Marcel. The collection continues to highlight the renowned artist’s diverse talents; filled with addictive grooves, Weekly Mansions is a huge experimental offering.

“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.”
