The newest and probably all-time most anticipated installment of RVNG Intl.’s 12-inch series, FRKWYS, sees Sun Araw, known to his California grade school teacher as Cameron Stallones, and his LA-to-JA collaborator in Duppy Gun Productions, M. Geddes Gengras, matching minds with Jamaica’s four decade-young roots reggae stalwarts The Congos. A film, Icon Eye (trailer above), will delve deeper into the collaboration for which both sides found new territory. Listen to “Happy Song” from the album below, which is not LA experimental or Jamaican sweet, but somewhere unique. From this weekend on it becomes the number one top track to dizzily come home to and play louder than your downstairs neighbors would prefer. Just earnestly, utterly, inspirationally carefree. FRKWYS Vol. 9, where Sun Araw and M. Geddes Gengras meet The Congos, entitled Icon Give Thank, comes out April 10th on RVNG Intl.
