After years of pursuing separate musical paths, a pair of DC Indie Rock siblings have forged a project that allows them to do just want they want to… have fun making music! Speedy Consuela is a family band consisting of brother and sister Steve and Joyce Raskin (now Mrs. White), and their musician partners Johnna Raskin and Matt White. Their name comes from pondering on who Speedy Gonzalez’s sister might be and their sound comes from a cheeky, inspired mix of Indie Rock, Retro and Electro. Fans of 90’s Indie rock will remember Joyce from her fantastic, Boston-based trio Scarce and Steve from DC post-punk popstersEdsel. Steve is also one of the masterminds behind downtempo superstars (and Thievery Corporation cohorts) Thunderball and funkdafied remixers the Fort Knox Five. After years of tinkering on tunes in the studio and releasing singles on Fort Knox Recordings the band has
made their first official video! “Sukka Suited” was an obvious choice with its chunked out Motown drums and catchy, punky, mod chorus. It showcases Speedy C’s M.O. of fusing live instrumentation with electronic dance sensibilities.
