Listen to The Mars Volta - The Malkin Jewel (stream)

Prog-experimental heavyweights The Mars Volta are releasing Noctourniquet in March, and today they've released the song "The Malkin Jewel" as a stream. It's pretty straight-forward for The Mars Volta ... the guitars are distorted but clean, the song is shorter (maybe cause it's a single) than a lot of the past Mars Volta epics of epic epicness. And it's accessible, in a good way.

The press release gives details: "While Noctourniquet was, in typical Mars Volta fashion, written by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala and produced by Rodriguez-Lopez, the 13-track album explores musical territories previously uncharted in the duo's 20 or so years of creating music together." It goes on to say "The bold diversity of the new material combined with Rodriguez-Lopez's assured producer's hand guiding The Mars Volta's most confident and refined performances to date make Noctourniquet an early contender for this year's most challenging and rewarding listen." Lacking confidence they are not.
