Synopsis

Amazon.com
It's easy to understand why people like the Subdudes, for the Colorado-based quartet blends the laid-back acoustic instrumentation and vocal harmonies of Southern California with the funky backbeat of New Orleans, where the musicians first got together. Imagine the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band backed by the Radiators. The Subdudes named their first album in three years, Annunciation, after the New Orleans street where they recorded many of the tracks. With the band coproducing itself for the first time, the album showcases their assets in the best possible light. --Geoffrey Himes

CD Reviews

One of their best efforts

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been listening to the Dudes since the late 90's when I listened to 'Primitive Streak' at a Borders listening station. I was blown away with their vocals and the originality of their music. I have all their recordings, except the new one with the mule. The Dudes are like a Cajun version of Sonia Dada. Their is just no other group like them. Mumbo Gumbo is similar, but the Dudes are much better. Every recording on this CD is a pleasure; it is full of 5 star recordings. 'You'll Be Satisfied' is a standout recording. 'Why Can't I Forget About You' is a beautiful, soul-felt song. 'Save Me' is fantastic, as is 'Sugar Pie' and 'I Know'.

I love music with harmony. There are some performers who can't seem to create a bad recording. Every Van Morrison and Boz Skaggs recording is listenable. Every James McMurtry recording is likeable; same can be said of Robert Earle Keene and Lyle Lovett. The same goes for Chris Isaak, Allison Krause and James Taylor. You will like every song on this CD. This CD will become a favorite; one to keep in the 12 CD changer in your car. This and Primitive Streak are the best Dudes CDs you can buy."
This is the best.

"This is thrilling and unique music. You can play it over and over, year after year, and enjoy something new every time. This CD is a rare beauty. Many fascets from four fellows. Not one disappointing cut will you find here!"
In a word: Awesome

"I fist ran into this band in NOLA, where I lived for some time. I was so very impressed (blown away, actually) by the band at JazzFest and followed-up with a hunt of my local music haunts. Being a fan of live music, studio tracks usually dissapoint. This album of heartfelt lyrics, melodies and harmonies is one of my absolute favorites. This is a fine representation of the band and some of the talent to be found in their home town of New Orleans (it isn't all Jazz, Cajun and Zydeco!). This disk seems to find its way into my car's player, my computer at work and is never far from my stereo at home. I have introduced many people to this album - and all have taken to it and the subdudes (always spelled in lower-case). Annunciation is my favorite. It is a true treasure.

I couldn't recomend a better album!"
