Back in 2005, Kevin Peroni released a promising EP which evoked both new wave and a distinct Travelling Wilburys' influence. It's taken a while to follow it up with an album but 'Bouldin' is the result. Unsurprisingly, given his past record, it's not a release which will set the agenda for modern rock, it's more a case of 60s/70s pop rock songs performed well. The music is never too light and solid hooks feature throughout. 'Secret Law' and 'Dragon Cigarette' comprise the best of the melodies for, respectively, a strong Wilburys influence (even as far as Peroni's George Harrison-like vocals) and a breezy melancholy. For thirty minutes of summery escapism, this is worth checking out.
