SEXTILE – Lucky 7

SEXTILE – Lucky 7 LUCKY 7 is the feature where we ask artists to name their 6 favourite songs by others, and a lucky 7th song of their own… Today, is the turn of astrologically named and attuned LA band Sextile, on the verge of releasing their second album of jittering pulses and irresistible motorik rhythm “Albeit Living” (out on 14th July).

SCHOOL DAMAGE – Lucky 7

SCHOOL DAMAGE – Lucky 7 LUCKY 7 is the feature where we ask artists to name their 6 favourite songs by others, and a lucky 7th song of their own… Today, is the turn of a quartet from Melbourne called School Damage.

THE COATHANGERS – Lucky 7 LUCKY 7 is the feature where we ask artists to name their 6 favourite songs by others, and a lucky 7th song of their own… Today, is the turn of Atlanta punk/garage combo and without hesitation they’ve probably chosen the most spot on Lucky 7 for Velvet Sheep fanzine ever – all bands that we would use to sum up our own spirit, so it’s made me love them even more.
