Big, nasty, and naughty electro may link these blog-approved buzz bands. But that's where the comparisons stop. Yo Majesty's Shunda K and Jwl B hail from Tampa, and were duly influenced by Sunshine State bass legends like 2 Live Crew — but with some fierce lesbian pride tossed in. Their debut album is due later this year. Like Majesty, Does It Offend You, Yeah? proudly sports local influences — in this case, British rock-and-ravers like Happy Mondays, sprinkled with a bit of Daft Punk and Justice whimsy. Its new CD, You Have No Idea What You're Getting Yourself Into, is a blogosphere smash. It should be just as smashing onstage.
