I will be surprised if 2012 produces a better album than THEESatisfaction’s awE naturalE, which was produced by Erik Blood and will be released on March 27 by Sub Pop. I’m already surprised the two are doing this family show, because despite being on a positive tip politically, their raps often explore dark and troubling sides of sexual and urban relationships. It will be interesting to see how THEESatisfaction operate in a pro-kids/parents context.
