The Mars Volta Release Early Demo of “Inertiatic ESP”


De-Loused in the Comatorium was such a monumentally important record to me, and everything after it so colossally disappointing, that I assumed every Mars Volta fan felt this way. It blows my mind every time I see it, but there are a lot of folks who came on board with Frances the Mute or even Amputecture and hold those in the highest regard as the pinnacles of the band’s achievements. I’ve tried and tried with those albums, but no dice… I can’t grok it.

Today it’s us OG fans for which The Mars Volta have a treat: an early recording of the De-Loused classic “Inertiatic ESP.” The track comes from an entire unfinished version of De-Loused that will be released as Landscape Tantrums on April 23. That album, in turn, will also be part of La Realidad De Los Sueños, the massive 18-LP box set that sold all 5,000 copies in a matter of hours despite its $479 price tag. That’s a gross of nearly $2.5 million.

Give the early demo of “Inertiatic ESP” below.
