Stream THEESatisfaction EarthEE

On their new album EarthEE, the Seattle duo THEESatisfaction have put together a form of avant-rap that draws from spoken word and astral jazz, explicitly asserting its place within black music’s Afro-futurist tradition. The album, the official follow-up to the 2012 effort awE NaturalE, features a lot of collaborations with the group’s hometown allies in Shabazz Palaces, as well as like-minded fellow travelers like Meshell Ndegeocello. We’ve posted “Recognition” and the title track, and now the whole album is streaming at NPR.

EarthEE is out 2/24 on Sub Pop.
