Everybody's A Good Dog is the first true realization of Shaun Fleming's Little Shop of Horrors -meets-Aladdin Sane vision, recorded in a proper studio with an assortment of guest artists, horn section, and string ensemble (all firsts for Fleming). The resulting 11 tracks are a sky-scraping sound kaleidoscope, touched with euphoric instrumentation and dark lyricism. 


Just as Diane Coffee's debut LP, 2013's 'My Friend Fish,' was inspired by Fleming's move from sunny California to New York City, Everybody's A Good Dog took shape after this former Disney child actor and current drummer for Foxygen uprooted again from NYC to the much smaller town of Bloomington, IN – "spontaneous moves have always helped to inspire my writing" he explains. This downsizing provided Fleming with a blank slate to create – "I missed the quiet. I missed having a fire. I missed the color green."

The songs on Everybody's A Good Dog capture this sense of clarity, channeling the New York Dolls or T-Rex at their strutting-est and Meatloaf at his most theatrical, with shades of Motown-worthy soul. The gentle psychedellia on opener "Spring Breathes" gives way to a pounding prog breakdown, "Mayflower" leads with a monster funk-fueled horn riff, while on "Tams Up" Fleming fronts his own one-man doo-wop group.

Palmas is hitting their stride with their eye on the bigger picture. The "psych/soul" band took some time to reflect on their song writing after the release of their single, "Flowers," which set the tone for the band’s future approach. "Flowers opened up our mind to expand on instrumentation in the studio."

After supporting the likes of Whitney, Twin Peaks, Vacationer and others, the group has taken a moment away from playing live to focus on new material. With new songs and a new live show, 2018 looks to be a promising year for Palmas
