I always dug Mars Volta, however I did not know that their keyboardist Ikey Owens had a project called "Free Moral Agents" for the past few years. I stumbled across a track from their latest album called "Control This" on Chocolate Industries via the blog Some Kind of Awesome. All I have to say damn. So I did some research and started to listening to the album, and I am completely blown away. The funny story the album is not really that new. It was actually recorded 4 years ago, and now it is seeing the light of day. The album is a mix of punk, afrobeat, hip hop, jazz and I think there is a kitchen sink somewhere in that mix.
Currently, Free Moral Agents are on tour, and they will be making a stop in Chicago on October 28 at Beauty Bar. Check out the track "Dragon Prow" below. You can stream the entire album from their website.
