thee satisfaction

Every March I pine for Austin because I know it’s warmer there than here and also because hundreds of journalists, critics, industry folks, and music appreciators from all over descend on the city for SXSW and sing its quirky praises. I read their blogs and miss the warmth and the tacos and the swimming holes and the dive bars. And yes, right: I also learn about new music.

People keep talking about Thee Satisfaction, a couple of Seattle-based lady rappers. They’re queer, feminist, political, super-good, have a nice Sun Ra extraterrestrial vibe, and like so many dude MCs they rhyme about stealing your girlfriend and seducing her. But it sounds so much better coming from them. As does the word “bitch.” I’m loving them right now.
