Dog On Fleas: Beautiful World
We’re big fans of Dog on Fleas and are very excited to have received their newest CD, Beautiful World. Added bonus … They will be doing a live concert this Saturday (11/22/08) at 2pm at the Northampton Community Music Center … grab the kids and go!
They were in our area this summer and Dean & John were Guest DJ’s on HFVS. We’ll be airing that show again this Saturday in case you missed it this summer, so tune in to 103.3FM from 9-10am. You can hear what was their world premiere of “It’s a Ruse.”
THIS WEEKS CONTEST
Win a copy of Dog on Fleas brand-spanking new CD, Beautiful World. It is an adventurous album, with it’s own beautiful world view, that will give you joy, hope, some new dance moves, and songs that will stick in your head for the next 10 years. Musical saws, piccolo, trombone, saxes, Udu drums, and Moog keyboards augment the drums, bass, guitar, and spirited vocals of the band.
Beautiful World is a change in directions in some ways, and also a continuation of the Fleas’ ever-expanding world. The title song and “Birds of a Feather” come from Dean and John’s old band, the For Sale by Owner Orchestra. That band was very theatrical and experimental, with all 10 members playing toys, instruments they didn’t know how to play, and non-instruments. For Sale by Owner members Melissa Wood and Otto Kentrol make guest appearances on Beautiful World. The Fleas also enlist Frances England to sing on the CD’s final song, “Babies,” a love song to all the babies of the world. Beautiful World is really, really full of love, in many forms. “Lima Bean,” sung by the one and only Lorette Velvette (and with Uncle Rock too), is a love story about a lima bean and her friend Slug. “I Love Your Accent” features friends of the Fleas from all over the world. “Water Planet” is sung by aliens expressing their love for our watery planet. In fact, most of the songs are full of love, if you just dig in to find it.
