TheeSatisfaction at The Independent

06/21/2012

There’s always plenty to do on Friday (especially Pride weekend), but we wanted to give you the heads up about THEESatisfaction at The Independent. The Sub Pop signees, comprised of Stasia Irons and Catherine Harris-White, take equal parts Digable Planets’ spoken word and Erykah Badu’s futuristic groove, stirring in a little of Jill Scott vocal smoothness (think “A Long Walk”), creating a completely unique style. Writing, producing and performing their own material described by the label as “funk-psychedelic feminista sci-fi epics with the warmth and depth of Black Jazz and Sunday morning soul, frosted with icy raps that evoke equal parts Elaine Brown, Ursula Ruck and Q-Tip,” TheeSatisfaction is worth going out of your way to see.
