"The music of Sublunar Minds is anything but earthly and mundane, so I will have to assume that they were skipping the common meaning of the song and were going for the more obtuse " situated between the earth and the moon".
Intelligent lyrics combined with a variety of musical tracks make their music fun and interesting to listen to, and I have not found a bad track yet. That qualifies them to claim music that is orbiting above us all.

...this is a band that defies any categorization other than "talented" and good". " - Razi Vox


[Regarding "Dumber Than A Box Of Rocks from Sublunar Minds' album "Get Hit In Your Soul"]

"A bouncing beauty from a New York four piece who sound like they're having a much fun as a pig in a sewage plant. Expertly side-stepping the "good sense-of-humour" curse." - Winston's Zen

Bio

What is Sublunar Minds? In short - a blend of rock, funk, and thoroughly permeating quirkiness, and a return to greasy grooves and all around good times.

The music of the Brooklyn based band drips in rock and roll spontaneity, funk energy, and oozes groove. The soulful trumpet and down-and-dirty harmonica combined with idiosyncratic lyrics and vocals suggest a world where an unholy inhuman hybrid of M Doughty, David Byrne, and Donald Fagen front a band whose members are moonlighting from regular duties alternatively backing Al Green and Bruce Springsteen.

Originally from Texas, singer Ben Cockerham spent years working the bar and roadhouse circuit, paying dues and honing sharp performance skills for any situation. After moving to New York, he connected with local East Village harmonica legend Frank Vigilante and local bass monster Damian Peters, and Italian born drummer Sebastiano Agostini, creating an intelligent, jazz influenced brand of funk rock.

High energy shows to packed clubs from Harlem to Brooklyn and everywhere in between have given Sublunar Minds a reputation as one of the most exciting young bands on the scene. The mission is simple: grooves and good times for everyone. Bloggers have called Sublunar Minds' songs "music to put you in orbit," and asserted "this is a band that defies any categorization other than 'talented' or 'good.'"
