On July 4, 2010, THEESatisfaction (Catherine Harris-White, Stasia Irons) dropped THEESatisfaction Loves Stevie Wonder Why We Celebrate Colonialism, an EP with tracks named after American presidents. The record is simple, low-tech, and has a beauty that feels alien, otherworldly. When I learned that the super-talented duo had signed to Sub Pop and would record an album with more powerful production tools, I worried this seemingly fragile beauty would be crushed by the bigger sound. It’s not. awE naturalE, the album that’s dropped today, has new and improved beats, but the weirdness is still intact. The two also know how to rock a party. You will not be disappointed by the show or the album. (Neumos, 925 E Pike St, www.neumos.com, 8 pm, $10, 21+)
