VIDEO: “Recognition” – THEESatisfaction (dir. by Tiona McClodden)

Flyer than most, surfacing above the clouds in a supernatural state, but always just that: Natural. THEESatisfaction dropped “Recognition,” the first video from their upcoming album EarthEE (due February 24 on Sub Pop). This clip serves as deference to the movers and the shakers, the inspiration and the makers, of Black American art everywhere. Filmed on location at the Schomberg Center in Harlem, and the homes of John Coltrane, Sun-Ra and Marian Anderson in Philadelphia, the video is fittingly humble and resplendent in its simplicity.
