Perhaps I’ve consumed one too many sci-fi novels, but I’ve long viewed earth as a separate entity from the rest of the cosmos that hangs in the distance, waiting to be explored. Part of the charm of Thee Satisfaction’s second Sub Pop album, February’s EarthEE, is that it connects our planet to the rest of the universe. Thee Satisfaction, aka Stasia Irons and Catherine Harris-White, are part of an informal collective of Seattle musicians propelling hip-hop and R&B to the stars, and with EarthEE they use intergalactic soul-funk to address the concerns of our own celestial body. If titles such as “Nature’s Candy” and “No GMO” can’t tip you off to Thee Satisfaction’s environmentalist streak, then the lyrics on the minimal, echo-treated “Planet for Sale” should do the trick: “Damn I’m a planet in the planting / How we destroy a planet when we didn’t plant things.” —Leor Galil
