Overview

If it wasn't always clear on earlier albums, the brilliantly played and thoughtfully written Street Symphony sweeps away any doubts: the Subdudes aren't just stellar musicians of the swampy jazz-rock-blues New Orleans persuasion, as they've come to be known. They're also a group of guys whose working-class roots run as definitively, and maybe as deeply, as Bruce Springsteen's. Few bands give up the grit with this much conviction and skill: while the Katrina-themed "Poor Man's Paradise" delivers listeners straight to a Crescent City dock where a world-weary man and his dog get by on beer and scratches behind the ear, "Work Clothes" celebrates, in a genuinely joyful way, the subversive thrill of playing hooky for a day of fishing. And then there's all that soul. Tracks like "Brother Man" and "I'm Your Town" come off as blue-state anthems wrapped in a blue collar, but they're no less beautiful or multi-dimensional for it. In fact, plainspoken poetry this rich and robustly played lingers in a way that's pretty close to magical, revealing layers of truth that seem to get louder with each listen.

If you know this band, you will love the new music. If you don't know this band, you will love the new music. See them live if you can. You will not be disappointed! They are the most down-to-earth bunch of nice guys who play with heart and soul. And they'll usually sign and chat after a show.
