The Mars Volta published their entire new album, Octahedron, on their MySpace page.
On each of their albums The Mars Volta had a quiet song or two. But this time it’s an entire quiet album except for one song – Cotopaxi (video here.) The Mars Volta claims this to be their version of an acoustic album. But don’t get them wrong – it’s far from being acoustic in the traditional sense. Being quiet, I didn’t have to listen to album 20 times to like it – I liked it immediately.
Those of you who know my music listening habits also know what this means – I’m playing Octahedron in an endless loop :)
