The 9th music & film collaborative effort in the FRKWYS series – in which free-thinking modern work with inspirational elder or otherwise further-traveled figures – this one finding Sun Araw and M Geddes Gengres meeting Jamaican music legends The Congos! M Geddes Gengres is skilled synth experimenter and Sun Araw works in a number of psych-steeped projects, and work respectfully with the words and Jamaican vocal harmonies of The Congos, though they fearlessly launch them into some tripped out atmosphere! Includes "New Binghi", "Happy Song", "Food Clothing And Shelter", "Sunshine", "Jungle", "Invocation" and "Thanks And Praise. The set also includes the hour-long Icon Eye DVD, documenting the making the of album as well as serving as a strikingly visual travelogue companion piece. Cool, ambitious stuff that combines classic Jamaican songcraft with wildly creative, experimental soundscapes!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
