That phosphorescent groove bubbling below "Multiply" comes from Sun Araw's Cameron Stallones and Los Angeles bretheren M. Geddes Gengras, collectively known as deep-roots dancehall curators Duppy Gun Productions. The pair traversed Jamaica during their tropical collaboration with The Congos, and found time to record with a number of local singers and artists. "Multiply" comes from Dayone, a singer and fisherman from the Forum village outside Portmore, Jamaica. Video credits come from Astral Project's Lily X. Wahrman and Tony Lowe, who manage deep psychedelia through mundanity rather than the imaginary sublime, and seem bent here on disorienting viewers and playing with their technology-conditioned expectations: FULL SCREEN IS A MUST. --Dale W. Eisinger, Altered Zones

"Multiply" is B/W on a 12" with "Earth," by Early One. It'll be available November 29, here
