"Cabaret Rustique", the "new" album from Dudes on Drugs is available now!

Culled from the original 1982 recording sessions, an album of entirely new material has been assembled from recently discovered "lost" tapes. Unlike the original DoD release, this one more truly captures the atmosphere of the original sessions, with less studio gimmickry added.

Hello! It's been a long time since anyone here at Sublamental has made much noise, musically or otherwise. I don't think I need to bore you with details of how we all grapple with the strange world we live in. This we all do in our own way. Suffice to say we've all been too busy to think about music, and that aint good!

So, in the spirit of getting back on track, I'd like to tell you about some new releases coming up in the near future. (Also I am providing some visual entertainment in the form of a photograph of Sun Ra, just because. You're welcome.)

Note on Black music

“Black music was a Black response to being terrorized and traumatized. We’re going to share and spread some soothing sweetness against the backdrop of the dark catastrophe. That’s Black music.”
