OUR STAGE: Zechs Marquise “Getting Paid”

Riffs, Rants & Rumors: Zechs Marquise Carries The Mars Volta Torch

It’s hard to believe it all started with a ’90s post-hardcore band. Admittedly, At The Drive-In was one of the weirder exponents of that style, but still, even given the relative eccentricity of the El Paso band’s output, it would have been pretty damn tough to prognosticate what would come in their wake simply by analyzing their discography. Of course, as any halfway-serious follower of either band knows, At The Drive-In gave birth to The Mars Volta around the turn of the century, as ATDI’s singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala and guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez defected to follow their own quirky vision.

Soon, Bixler-Zavala and Rodriguez-Lopez were turning heads with their new band, blasting out an in-your-face amalgam of progressive rock, fusion and hard rock that would eventually earn them a GRAMMY and a Gold record. Since then, the tireless Rodriguez-Lopez has also unleashed a whirlwind
of extracurricular projects that would make even Robert Pollard seem unproductive, including a sideline as a ridiculously prolific solo artist. But there’s a Mars Volta offshoot that boasts one MV member and at least two Rodriguez-Lopezes but does not contain Omar. Confused? It’ll all become clear as we dig into the details of the Zechs Marquise story.

COS Premiere: Zechs Marquise “Everlasting Beacon Of Light”

As cliché as it is, a sophomore slump is a relatively valid fear for artist and fan alike  But given the pedigree of Zechs Marquise, the fear diminishes quite a bit. Featuring Marcel and Marfred Rodriguez-Lopez (the former of Mars Volta fame), the El Paso, TX outfit will release their second album Getting Paid on September 27th via Rodriguez-Lopez Productions. They’ve even invited brother and fellow Volta bandmate Rikardo Rodriguez-Lopez to join in on keyboard trumpet for this go-around.

The first track to surface from the forthcoming album is “Everlasting Beacon of Light,” a dense, layered track that expands on the bands hazy, aggressive prog stylings of 2009′s Our Delicate Stranded Nightmare. The offering has almost a trip-hop feel to it as it builds up and finally explodes with the wrecking ball intensity we’ve come to love from the Brothers Rodriguez. Check out the song and the full tracklist to Getting Paid below.

Zechs Marquise – “Everlasting Beacon of Light” (Feat. Matthew Embree/ vocals)

Getting Paid Tracklist:
01. Getting Paid
02. Lock Jaw Night Vision
03. Static Lovers
04. The Heat, The Drought, The Thirst, and The Insanity
05. Time Masters
06. Guajira
07. Everlasting Beacon of Light
08. Crushin’ It!
09. Mega Slap

College Times: Zechs Marquise build new sound from the ground up


Zechs Marquise, the progressive jazz-rock band from El Paso with oft-mentioned ties to The Mars Volta via Marcel, Marfred and Rico Rodriguez-Lopez, just finished touring in support of the RX Bandits before prepping for the release of their second full-length studio album [their first LP was live], Getting Paid.

Drummer Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez, who is also a percussionist for The Mars Volta, won’t be on the band’s few summer headlining shows and brother and bassist Marfred Rodriguez-Lopez talked to College Times about playing without his older brother and the how the psychedelic sound on their upcoming album (released Sept. 27) is the result of failing at making hip-hop, but a successful attempt to represent the energy of the band’s live shows in a less “slightly depressing” way, as Rodriguez-Lopez put it.

College Times: Where was the band at during the writing of Getting Paid?

Marfred Rodriguez-Lopez: Where exactly did we do the writing?

I meant more of a state of mind rather than a place, but place is fine.

Oh, okay. After we did A Delicate Stranded Nightmare and we started touring the record, we realized it would give the songs a bit more life live through different parts and arrangements and making things heavier and messing with dynamics. So when we started talking about doing a new record, we kind of wanted to bring that energy to put it onto a recording as opposed to just keeping it strictly for the live show. We just wanted something that was a better representation of the way we play our music and just the kind of energy that is in one of our live shows. We wanted to bring that into a recording.

Le Butcherettes On The Creative Process and The New Album

Le Butcherettes On Their Creative Approach To Songwriting And The Meaning Behind Their New Album

Le Butcherettes know how to put on a live show. The “garage-punk trio” (which originally began in 2008 as a duo), fronted by Teri Gender Bender, has come from Mexico to Los Angeles, bringing with them an almost theatrical energy and obvious passion for their music. Read on to learn about the band’s unique songwriting process and how their new album Sin Sin Sin represents both musical and spiritual growth. 

Without using the words “alternative,” “pop,” “rock,” or “hip-hop,” describe your sound.

I describe this sound to be simple but powerful. I really don’t know how to answer this question without looking like a goof. I usually describe it as “butcher rock” because I butcher and cut the hell out of the songs and then every song ends up having a different sound to it.  When Omar and I worked on the album I would say he added wonders of elegance to it. He gave my chaos a lot of polishing and has allowed me to live in my own songs when they are played live. Lars Stalfors and Isaiah Abolin really did a great job on the engineering. Life changes and the next sound might be different.

What or whom do you go to for musical inspiration?
During the recording of the LP I was listening to a lot of Spice Girls, David Bowie and Beck. I love Bowie’s music so much. After we would finish recording for the day I’d drive back to my Mother’s home (in GDL) and just put Bowie on full blast. Beck makes me feel so alive and sexy. Spice Girls are just for fun to bring back the old days when I would use a hairbrush for a microphone. Nowadays Gabe and Jon have been feeding me tons of cool old school rock I’ve never heard of: Betty Davis, Diamanda Galas, Marnie Stern, etc…

MTV Iggy Album Review: Le Butcherettes Tear Garage Rock A New One With Sin Sin Sin

Sin Sin Sin
Le Butcherettes
Release date: May 10, 2011 on Rodriguez Lopez Productions

Mexico City garage punks Le Butcherettes have debuted with Sin Sin Sin a slab of seductive and surreal rock that more than stands up to the mayhem of their live show.

Produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, the recording has an immediacy that makes the listener feel as if they are watching the duo’s blood spattered garage rock cabaret unfold before their eyes. Riveting frontwoman/guitarist Teri Gender Bender manages to combine Nina Hagen and Joan Jett with a little bit of Frida Kahlo and a whole lot of Kim Deal. By that we mean she’s a weird girl with a powerful singing voice who likes to read. (Yeah, we have a crush on her.) Drummer/masked cipher Normandi Heuxdaflo plays Meg to her Jack White.

Their tuneful blues rock is animated by bizarre imagery and riot grrrl rage. Ms. Gender Bender calls out famous alpha-male literary figures like Henry Miller and 17th Century philosophers and the patriarchy in general in evocative lines like, “We walk through the zoo at night/Tell your friends that I’m a fright.”

The diversity of the songs on the album keep things — even more — interesting. “Leibniz Language,” is a stand out driven by moody, punk-rock organ, and like all the songs on the album, follows a multi-part song structure. “The Actress That Ate Rousseau” has jazzy streak that recalls The Noisettes, while songs like “Bang!” are a little more direct about rocking your face off.

Bikini Kill plus books? The Magnetic Fields plus heavy riffs? However you want to file it, Sin Sin Sin is recommended for fans of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Kills or The White Stripes and highly recommended for anyone getting over a break up with a dude or anyone who needs something to drown out the D-bags who routinely have loud, ignorant conversations on public transit.
