One of the finest slices of Americana-esque music to hit the kennel's juke box of late is the eponymous album by Véloniños which was released on Monday. 

It's steeped in Rockabilly and Rock 'n' Roll, which is hardly surprising as it's the work of former Shakin' Pyramids duo Davie Duncan and Kenny McLellan, ably assisted by Shug Jamieson and Laurie Cuff (formerly of the infamous Cuban Heels).

The Véloniños album is available digitally and on CD but it's authenticity begs for it to be lovingly pressed on vinyl, maybe something they'll consider due to the resurgence of that format.

RER001CD-digital-product-01The Véloniños album features six songs previously released as a digital EP plus four brand spanking new tracks - Red Diesel Medicine, Preacherman, These Quiet Lands and Hillbilly Girl. Ralph has already played the single Hey Velonino on his Radio KC Indie Show and will be following that up by spinning the excellent, blues infused Alabamaman on the Valentines Day Special.

For aficionado's of the Americana scene, the Véloniños album's a true classic, but that being said its appeal should cover the full spectrum with its blues, rockabilly, rock 'n' roll and just downright quality listening pleasure pedigree.
