The Mars Volta may be dissolved, but that doesn't mean that everything the band had in them has seen the light of day.
The Mars Volta fan forum thecomatorium.com unearthed a collection of 15 unreleased tracks from The Mars Volta's catalog, posting a link to the collection for download on Mediafire. Former Mars Volta vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala confirmed the collection's legitimacy on his Twitter page with the following tweet:
"The recent TMV leaks are from a session we did w/ @davidguetta during our residency at Ibiza hot spot RAMROD."
Bixler-Zavala's penchant for goofy and misleading tweets got briefly ignored by many media outlets, who reported the tweet as a rumor of a collaboration with EDM artist David Guetta which never came to fruition. However, the rumor was proven false by Bixler-Zavala in a later, much less serious tweet.
"@davidguetta will u quantize my balls w your Eurocentric beats? We could be something fierce babe mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmTHeriously."
The 15 tracks are mostly unfinished instrumentals, outtakes and demo recordings. The collection is available for free download at Mediafire:
Digging: Hammock - Oblivion Hymns
All I can say is that xv8 is straight out bada$$.
A good day
Digging: Psyclon Nine - [Order of the Shadow: Act I]
Listening to K49 (at least, that's what it was labeled as) right now, and it is really good. Definitely going to jam this for a few days.
Digging: Edan - Beauty and the Beat
God yes, more Mars Volta is always welcome.
Cool, love this band.
Digging: Death Grips - Government Plates
Digging: Ceremony - Ruined
Better not sound like Octahedron.
98d87 nice drumsss
ef4 is pretty sick.
fuck yea it is
I remember a few of these from their pre-Noctourniquet shows.
these are some fuckin tasty jams
unfortunately these demos are their best material since amputechture
eog-3 sounds like it could have been on noctourniquet. There's a lot of good stuff on here.
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
Wow this is fucking awesome.
Digging: City Of Ifa - Self Titled
lol at the myriad of tweets at david guetta
this is sweet
yay, more good music to listen to.
weird they wouldn't have released some of these and past songs as a b-sides album or something... very generous of these fellas
anyone have any track orders or anything that they are using? I took 7 of the songs that I thought could work decently together and clipped ends in some places to get them to transition a little better and put them in an order that had at least some sort of cohesiveness to it. Increased my enjoyment a little bit that way. Good stuff in there.
I looked at this whole unearthing as a DIY compilation album, I gave it a name, a cover I preferred, and named the songs myself.
You're living in a fantasy world Ace.
I wholeheartedly agree.
This is a real solid collection of jams, though.
Absolutely, TMV are musically solid.
yo ace i am quite curious - what did you name all the tracks?
Fuck all those neckbeards on the coma.
wish there was vocals on more of them
what kind of mixing has been done on these tracks? of they sound decent it might be cool but otherwise idk
Digging: MondreM.A.N. - They Say I Struggle Rap
um.. you realize they weren't finished and therefore weren't fully mixed?
Digging: Daylight - Jar
yes i know what demos are
i'm not asking if they are pristine i'm asking if they are decent
