Comments: No, Say Anything and The Mars Volta haven't collaborated on new music--but that idea has the potential to be so ludicrously fun that I'm fully in favor of the concept. (Be honest: that's why you clicked on this post.) Instead, this is a short post to let you know that both bands have new singles adding to our playlist this week.
Say Anything's eponymous song is a burst of pop-punk that sounds like, well, Say Anything; "The Malkin Jewel" is another weird slice of prog-leaning hard rock that could only come from The Mars Volta. In other words, if you like either of these bands, these tunes will get you excited for their forthcoming full-lengths.
