Behind The Levee
Review of Subdudes CD

By Julius Timmerman
Posted Tuesday, August 29, 2006

Produced by Keb Mo, this is The Subdudes’ sixth album. When I first saw it I thought I’d be reviewing a country album of some sort. Turns out The Subdudes from New Orleans conjured up images of Little Feat, Ry Cooder and The Band, with a little rhythm and blues, a little soul, and just a dash of Cajun. With so many influences, the style is certainly difficult to categorise but let’s try a kind of a West Coast-Southern US crossover. Whatever the case, it’s a nice individual blend that’s totally unpretentious.

With spirited, passionate vocals up front, funky easy-going rhythms and catchy tunes as the main ingredients, it’s a great recipe for a warm, happy and alluring experience. Highly recommended.
