Rosendale's Dean Jones Releases New Record

  • Dean Jones and friend.

Back in February, I posted the fantastic news about the Okee Dokee Brothers’ Can You Canoe?, an album produced by Rosendale’s Dean Jones, winning a Grammy for Best Children’s Album of the Year. This month, Jones, one of the, er, deans of Hudson Valley indie music, released When the World Was New, his third solo album of cool kid-friendly sounds.

The disc was recorded at Jones’ straw bale-constructed No Parking Studio, where he also produced Can You Canoe?, as well as projects by the Deedle Deedle Dees, Recess Monkey, Elizabeth Mitchell (her Little Seed: Songs for Children by Woody Guthrie was also nominated for a 2013 Grammy), and his own band Dog on Fleas, a local kids’ music institution. When the World Was New boasts 12 new songs “loosely looking at the evolution of us silly humans” and features guest work by Gustafer Yellogold’s Morgan Taylor, Shamsi Ruhe, the Sweet Clementines’ Marianne Tasick, and others. Here’s a cute clip for the album’s “Snail Mail” (Dean, I’m jealous of that Hagstrom bass):

When the World Was New is available at local music shops and Dogonfleas.com. Dog on Fleas will play locally at Mountain Jam (June 9) and the Clearwater Festival (June 16).
