The Velvet Angels - Acappella Showcase Presents The Velvet Angels

I grabbed this from roommate's friend's computer late last night while drinking gin and tonics with PBR sidecars. Gorgeous, gorgeous a cappella doo wop at its best here. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of info on this Detroit-transplanted-to-Jersey-group but you can read the All Music Guide write-up here. It confirms what was Danielle telling me about these recordings being made in a hotel room before one of their gigs. This was the perfect music to hear at 2 in the morning after getting buzzed on gin and chain smoking cigarettes. Beautiful.


  1. Thanks for posting this, dig Nolan Strong and been meaning to listen to this slice of rawness for a while! Keep it up matey!

  3. Awesome! Thanks Woo Dops! Yeah, sorry my posts have slowed down. Life is getting in the way. Glad you like the sounds and I'll comb through your blog as well. Looks like a gold mine so far...
