Shabazz Palaces | TheeSatisfaction Granada Theater May 2, 2013 I don't remember the exact moment that the concert turned into a party, which I suppose is a good sign, but it's how the night fe... Continue reading "Shabazz Palaces - Granada Theater - May 2, 2013" >
Por Augusto Dallachiesa Con la idea fija de llevarse todo por delante sin que te des cuenta, Stasia Irons y Catherine Harris-White , las dos gemas de ébano que armaron THEESatisfaction , llegaron demasiado tarde al conteo de lo mejor del último año. Su primer disco oficial, Awe NaturalE (2012), es un secreto bien guardado que lastimosamente no pudo brillar con todo su esplendor, un poco porque ellas son apresuradas -como mucho, el álbum durará media hora- y otro poco por haber estado opacadas por verdaderas joyas que rompieron la monotonía, [...]
As a supplement to John's "Mom Show" this morning, and our earlier roundup celebrating women, we'd like to keep the celebration of female art on the indie scene going throughout the day! 2012 has seen an insane number of breakout artists, many (if not most) of which are women who are not afraid to break rules and show off their artistry unhinged. Natasha Khan ( Bat For Lashes ) created a masterful album with The Haunted Man , whose cover of Khan naked with a man draped over her shoulders, makes her look strong [...]

Fresh off the back of the release of their first album 'awE naturalE', Stas & Kat have made a video. I was lucky enough to see THEESatisfaction live in Manchester last year, when they were supporting Shabazz Palaces, and they completely blew me away. They are definitely a unique talent, blending that traditional hip hop
THEESatisfaction - Awe Naturale Sub Pop: 2012 Over my couple of years writing here at Potholes I’ve been pretty clear about my affinity for R&B that is alternative , on that progressive soul , boho booty bump , or rooted to the gut bucket blues . Tight song writing, big hooks, and catchy melodies are low on my preferences for contemporary rhythm-n-blues as the late-50s to early-80s had that game on lock. The truth is in a world where rap, electronic, and indie rule the blogosphere, it’s hard for R&B and [...]
Fresh off Coachella and on my way to Jazz Fest in NOLA, it's hard not to feel like I'm getting spoiled by live music lately. In the meantime though, there's been a ton of dope shit dropping left and right, and I haven't had the chance to show love to all the great bands that deserve it. For one, the new Chromatics album is pretty epic. Aside from that, Fort Romeau and Hype Williams also came with some pretty excellent full-lengths, and 2 Chainz absolutely stole the show on the latest from Yeezy and the G.O.O.D. Music fam. Also, for [...]
If things were up to us, the next year or so in R&B/ soul would be completely shifted to fall in complimentary line with the kooky goodness being served on "QueenS", the lead-off cut from Seattle-based hip hop duo's THEESatisfaction 's Album of the Year-worthy debut awE naturalE . More clever, funky, creative, cool, soulful and groovalicious than about 98% of anything the genre has produced in recent memory and excitingly sounding like the past and future of Black pop folding unto itself, "QueenS" is the soul-lovers' definition of the kind of [...]
Niki & The Dove are a few weeks away from their highly anticipated debut project ' Instinct ' which will see daylight on May 14th, to keep us satisfied until then the duo will be releasing an appetizer in the form of a forthcoming mixtape. 'Hot Summer' which is a reworking chillwave version of 'The Drummer' is above, it's a good day to be a Niki & The Dove fan.

One of your and my toons of the years has a video ! Trippy wobbly hip-soul-she-poppers, the THEESATISFACTION , lounge about as if in a 3:27 photo shoot for Dazed & Confused via their new video, QUEENS . Turn up your swag alert !
THEESatisfaction (I really like typing that) has released a video for the extremely wavy , groove oriented jam "QueenS", the new single off their well received awE naturalE album. Check it out below and realize that this duo would make far cooler neighbours than the ones you currently have. Watch: THEESatisfaction - "Queens" (Video) |
Prepare-se para ser tomado por uma onda soul deliciosa como você nunca tinha ouvido antes. Como já anunciam no seu release, as THEESatisfaction é uma dupla de belíssimas garotas negras chamadas Stasia Irons e Catherine Harris-White, cujo o objetivo é propagar a verdadeira essência da black music. Com apenas algumas semanas após o lançamento do seu disco de estréia, essas garotas tem chamado a atenção dos principais blogs de música no mundo todo - este é, com certeza, o primeiro passo ao reconhecimento de um trabalho muito interessante. Atualmente vivem em Seattle, uma das maiores [...]
THEESatisfaction - awE naturalE There are two ways to review THEESatisfaction's debut LP: the easy way, and the hard way. The easy way involves using terms like "avant-rap" and "jazz-soul fusion," making some references to outer space, and calling it a day. The hard way involves acknowledging that this is a record penned by a pair of romantically involved black lesbians and discussing this fact openly as it relates to the music. I have seen precisely none of the second type, a stunning fact considering that the record includes lines like "My melanin is relevant/it's something [...]
