These recordings of 3 sessions dating from the years 2018/ 2019 and recorded, mixed and produced at Clouds Hill Studios are released digitally and as a 3-LP vinyl box set. Part I features 8 songs, and Parts II and III 6 songs each, which have been entirely newly arranged, produced by Johann Scheerer, and performed by Omar Rodríguez-López and guest musicians.

Only very few songwriters and arrangers have succeeded in leaving their mark on several generations with their compositions and their performances. Omar Rodríguez-López is one of these exceptional artists. Just hearing his name brings a shine to the eyes of aficionados of hard or virtuoso or cosmic music. This is someone who completely abandons himself to his art – and someone with an incredible amount of knowledge about the depth of possibility guitar music can explore.

During the 2000s Omar Rodríguez-López released an astonishing variety of solo works. On these recordings the artist used pieces that had accumulated over the years. However, what has so far been missing is a release that brings together the pieces from that era. This wait now has come to an end for here are THE CLOUDS HILL TAPES, Part I – III featuring 20 tracks that present his music in a new light.

Part I – Digital Release – 19th June
Part II – Digital Release – 3rd July
Part III – Digital Release – 31st July

3LP Vinyl Box incl. 10 monochrome photo prints - 24th July

Very nicely put together object and sounds well produced. Would like to know how many were made, the music itself is a different issue and as a long term Omar and MV fan it isn't hitting too many buttons for me, especially vocally, but the keys sound great. Overall a nice project.
