Despair is the tenth solo record by Omar Rodríguez-López, released in January 2009 by Willie Anderson Recordings. Prior to beginning the studio sessions for The Mars Volta's The Bedlam in Goliath, Rodriguez-Lopez recorded Despair, inspired by his experiences in and around Jerusalem and using material culled from field recordings and studio experimentation. The record was pressed on white vinyl.

Every track (and the album itself) is named after a film directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
