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. The album’s unstoppable grooves and melodies were written with live performance in mind, dipping in to 60s psychedelia as well as early New York Dolls to create a fully realized musical tour de force that Fleming has been working towards all his life.
“…it’s like sifting through a treasure trove of half-remembered gems.” NME 8/10
“Given the strength of this debut, Fleming can’t be in much of a hurry to get back behind the drum kit.” Q 4*s
“…closer to those whacked-out 60s sounds than many latterday impersonators. Brilliant.” Record Collector 4*s
“As a vocalist this kid has soul and a true voice. As a songwriter he’s truly a maverick, having digested the best bits of the past to create something truly special.” Shindig
