Earlier this week, Philadelphia six-piece Dr. Dog dropped by Yo Gabba Gabba! to teach kids the basics of rural life. The city boys played up their farmer roles in plaid and overalls on a set strewn with hay. They also traded their instruments in for rakes, hoes and pumpkins to perform an original song titled “When You’re a Gardener.”
Cheerful harmonies and delicate piano accompanied the song, which told of the joys of harvesting and growing vegetables.
This is the group’s second contribution to the kids’ show, as their song “What Story Do You Want to Hear?” appeared on the 2010 compilation Yo Gabba Gabba! Music Is Awesome, Vol. 2. The group also released a soulful single titled “The Truth,” which will appear on their forthcoming album B-Room.
