HOLLY MACVE – Song For Ewe

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest has a voice that’ll make you stop dead in your dust tracks. Born in Galway, raised in Yorkshire, based in Brighton she may be from various terra firma but her country tinged timbre and widescreen drama is not from this scorched earth. Holly Macve has music coarsing...

KIRA SKOV – Song For Ewe

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest is a Danish singer-songwriter and serial collaborator sans pareil, who didn’t so much grapple with the pandemic but wrest it into a startlingly brilliant and diverse many fronded record of arresting duets called “Spirit Tree” (out on Stunt Records on 14th...

GREG CARTWRIGHT of REIGNING SOUND – Song For Ewe

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today it’s a proper shakin’ hell garage rock legend, someone who blew me away at the Garage venue many moons ago with his erstwhile rabble rousers The Oblivians and who for sometime now has been eminence gris, Memphis denizen and psychobilly king of Reigning Sound. Now a long-term...

CEITIDH MAC – Song For Ewe

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today it’s an artist who’s gonna do for the cello what Mary Lattimore has for the harp, i.e. make it achingly cool. Ceitidh is pronounced Katie, and Mac short for MacLeod, and soon enough it’s going to be shorthand for soaring cello virtuosity. Boho like Ani DiFranco,...

JAH WOBBLE – Song For Ewe

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. The word legend is thrown around willy-nilly these days but sometimes you have to throw it like a projectile – javelin-like and totally justified, as today’s guest is truly Jah-like when it comes to playing the bass, with his inestimably powerful acid dub punk low-end soundscapes...

TREVOR DUNN of TOMAHAWK & MR. BUNGLE – Song For Ewe

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest is a noise rock legend, from a band of fellow Mount Rockmore alumni (see pic). Tomahawk have a brand new album on Ipecac called Tonic Immobility and listening to it takes me back to all my favourite albums of a few years back (the 90s were a few years back right?) It’s...
