The indie tastemakers at Pitchfork threw some love at awE naturalE, the Sub Pop debut from Seattle hip-hop duo THEESatisfaction. In Carrie Battan's highly positive review of the record -- which she awarded 7.5 points out 10 -- she said:
Like Lazaro has done in the last couple of years, THEESatisfaction find a way to draw from the early-1990s backpack era and break new (and sometimes strange) ground while staying on the right side of the line between groovy and granola. Songs meander through psychedelic loops built around jazz or funk instrumentation, starting punchily in one place and ending abruptly somewhere altogether different.
SW's Keegan Hamilton highly recommended the record in his review in the March issue of Reverb Monthly, which you can read right here. And if you act quick, you should still be able to snatch up a ticket to see THEESatisfaction tonight at Neumos.
