Sub Pop labelmates Shabazz Palaces and newcomer Porter Ray join Queer Futurists THEESastisfaction for the video EarthEE, the title track taken from the Seattle duo's second album. Utterly mesmerising, this four minute video employs compelling graphics that helps propel the song even further into the light fantastic. "It's a short visual meditation on the textile traditions of home, sacred Geo Metrics, theta based communication and the whirling dervish. A sonically driven work of ancient Afro continuum…" says the video's director, Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes. Press play on EarthEE and let THEESatisfaction sooth your soul...
