I was roped into the new jam “QueenS” by the band THEESatisfaction because I read of their connection to Shabazz Palaces, but found that their music stood up just fine on its own. “QueenS” is a the lead track from the groups forthcoming Awe Naturale LP and is a slice of futuristic neo-soul. The track is lightweight and breezy, with soulful pop vocals bringing the track down to earth. Like their pals Shabazz Palaces, THEESatisfaction seem determined to make classic music with a slightly off kilter touch. Time will tell if they can do it on the scale and scope that Shabazz Palaces were able to, but “QueenS” is an interesting start.
