From the link:

"Daniel Lanois is, for me, among the greatest record producers of the rock era. He's been involved in so many of my favorite albums over the years: Peter Gabriel's So and Us, Bob Dylan's Oh Mercy and, of course, the lion's share of U2's best work, in conjunction with his friend and frequent collaborator Brian Eno.

It's easy to recognize a project by Lanois: Shimmering guitar lines, earthshaking bass thumps and soulful, spirited drumming are all trademarks. But what's most immediate is the visceral reaction you get from his work. I'm always moved by his music.

With his new project, Black Dub, Lanois brings together a deeply connected collective of likeminded musicians. Renowned Louisiana bass player Daryl Johnson and New Orleans virtuoso drummer Brian Blade are longtime Lanois collaborators, while young Trixie Whitley, the lone daughter of the late Chris Whitley (who was also championed by Lanois), provides the spiritual continuum. The results are sublime. "Surely" bears the spiritual weight of gospel, while the dub-heavy "I Believe in You" features a stunning vocal from Whitley.

I was fortunate to hear about this album while it was still in the works nearly a year ago. When the band gathered in February for some choice dates in Los Angeles, I got to travel to Bella Vista, Lanois' Silver Lake enclave, to record an impromptu living-room performance and interview. The resulting session aired on my KCRW radio show that week and marked Black Dub's worldwide radio debut.

Black Dub's self-titled debut will stream here in its entirety until its release on Nov. 2. Please leave your thoughts on the album in the comments section below."

interesting solo at the end of "Ring The Alarm" Lanois plays almost the exact same guitar solo he plays on
"May this be love" off the EmmyLou Harris "Wrecking Ball" album.

was that an intentional reference or coincidence.?

Heard a cut on Exponiential Radio the other day and liked what I heard. I had no idea it was Chris Whitley's daughter. Think Black Dub is a stupid and misleading name though.

Please explain why you think the name is stupid and misleading?

What's in a name? It's really what you make of it.
It was probably once thought "The Beatles" was a stupid and misleading name?

Well ... Black as in African or African American or Evil. Dub as :

quote:
Dub is a genre of music[1] which grew out of reggae music in the 1960s, and is commonly considered a subgenre,[2] though it has developed to extend beyond the scope of reggae. Music in this genre consists predominantly of instrumental remixes of existing recordings[3] and is achieved by significantly manipulating and reshaping the recordings, usually by removing the vocals from an existing music piece, emphasizing the drum and bass parts (this stripped down track is sometimes referred to as a 'riddim'). Other techniques include dynamically adding extensive echo, reverb, panoramic delay, and occasional dubbing of vocal or instrumental snippets from the original version or other works. Dub also sometimes features electronically generated sound effects, or the use of distinctive instruments such as the melodica.[citation needed]

Dub was pioneered by Osbourne "King Tubby" Ruddock, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Errol Thompson and others[2] in the late 1960s. Similar experiments with recordings at the mixing desk outside of the dancehall environment were also done by producers Clive Chin and Herman Chin Loy.[4] These producers, especially Ruddock and Perry, looked upon the mixing desk as an instrument, manipulating tracks to come up with something new and different.

Dub has influenced many genres of music, including rock (most significantly the sub-genre of post-punk and other kinds of punk[5]), pop,[6] hip hop,[5] disco, and, later, house,[7] techno,[7] ambient,[7] and trip hop;[7] it has become a base for jungle/drum'n'bass[8][9] and dubstep.[10] Today, the word 'dub' is used widely to describe the re-formatting of music of various genres into typically instrumental, rhythm-centric adaptations.



The tune I heard had nothing in common with any of these definitions which have definately been used in context to describe other existing forms of music which are not like the music I in fact heard. I suppose you are right I should have just used misleading. If they conciously made up a name which had nothing to do with their music then ... that would have been stupid IMO.

Actually the Beatles used the play on the word beat which was a catch word of the time. (Similar to "right on.") I'm not exactlly sure or not if the Beatles were lumped in with the Mersey Beat which referred to a lot of English Invasasion Bands. But ... you probably need to pick another example to attempt to prove your point.
