[WATCH] THE MARS VOLTA: ‘The Malkin Jewel’

The Mars Volta have released a video for ‘The Malkin Jewel’, the first from their pretty great new LP Noctourniquet. Eschewing their usual tendency for silly and/or twisted narratives, this simple black-and-white clip instead documents their scaled-back current line-up live in concert, performing a 15-minute rendition of the lurching single. The video was edited by TMV mastermind Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, who reminds us of his guitar prowess here with some impressive solos that were largely absent on the new album.

Watch the video for ‘The Malkin Jewel’ below (via SPIN).
