ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hoi Polloi, the second CD from Dog on Fleas, is a joyous romp through songs about pie, clouds, the dangers of parking lots, and what monkeys think about people. Fiddles, horns, guitars, car horns, percussion, and ecstatic singing abound.

The CD kicks off with “Blueberry Pie,” a rowdy ode to flavors with a full horn section and a sweet-toothed chorus. Fiddle, peddle steel, twangy guitars and down-home singing adorn the “Addage Song” “Clouds” has a soothing, almost tropical feel propelled by upright bass, autoharp and Latin percussion. And “Rowboat” makes use of electronic drums, effected saxophone and guitars, and weird, swirling voices to compliment this conundrum of a song. In “Yonderland,” we hear about a place where all the people are made of rubber bands and everything else is made from tin cans - is the grass always greener somewhere else? For “Goodnight Fudge,” a young boy bids adieu to his most prized possessions before heading off to bed.

"This is a hip, fun, kid-friendly album your won't mind listening to on the way to the beach. There's a real Jonathon Richman quirky-type sense to songs...This band has a strange approach to music, with lots of interesting sounds and playful production designed to delight their audience." Kathy O'Connell, Metrokids Sound Off

“There is something here to make both kids and adults laugh and there's also something here to touch every listener's heart.” Ulster Publishing's Almanac

"Dog on Fleas doesn't pander to children. It treats kids as sensible, thinking creatures that can make logical leaps in song." Chronogram magazine

Over-burdened parents are going to have a challenging time following through with wrapping this album up for the kids rather stashing it away for their own fun when they hear this diverse collection of upbeat songs, so thoroughly committed to the direction of painless, non-assaulting Kids' Rock. With pop and folk and r&b personalities ranging from a reject Elvis impersonator to 70's pop to Jerry Garcia jamming with Jimmy Buffet, this is one gift that might not ever make it under the tree.

fantastic, fun, family music
This is a gem of a "kids" CD - though really it is a "family" CD - one of the best I've ever heard. Anyone who likes music will love this CD - upbeat, pop-y, fun songs with very catchy and witty lyrics. My kids (1.5 and 7 yrs old) love "Blueberry Pie" while my wife & I laugh at "The Monkey", but we all know almost the whole CD by heart now. A MUST HAVE for any family CD collection - we're buying extra copies to give as christmas presents.
