Published Jul 22, 2011While some were skeptical as how Sub Pop would fare with releasing hip-hop records, Shabazz Palaces' fantastic debut Black Up proved that the A&R department at the label knows a thing or two about forward-thinking rap music. With that in mind, we're excited to report that the imprint has signed Seattle duo THEESatisfaction.
The team of Stasia Irons and Catherine Harris-White describe themselves as "lo-fi rebel hip-hop" and have released five EPs to date, along with an appearance on the aforementioned Shabazz Palaces effort. The duo are expected to issue their debut album early next year.
For now, THEESatisfaction's "Do You Have Time" can be downloaded or streamed via the widget below. The group also have some tour dates planned, including a Toronto appearance on October 8.
