On the Velvet Sheep radio show, I play top tunes picked as part of the fanzine’s “song for ewe” feature where favourite artistes old and new choose an obscure-ish song they’ve enjoyed lately.

With no rules on genre or era, the songs range from psychobilly freakouts to psychedelic workouts, rare doo-wop to classic punk rock, pastoral to choral and extreme noise terror to elegant ambient soundscapes.

This week’s iconoclasts and sparkaleptics include “songs for ewe” by:

Chris Knox (Tall Dwarfs)
David Lance Callahan (The Wolfhounds)
Delilah Holliday (Skinny Girl Diet)
Sly & The Family Drone

Plus new songs from Yara Asmar, Marisa Anderson, Nightingales, Poor Performer & European Sun…
