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 episode featured “songs for ewe” from the following n’er do wells:

UT
Belvy (The Catatonics)
Steven Blush (author of “American Hardcore”)
Caleb Nichols (Kill Rock Stars artiste)

plus new songs from Erica Dawn Lyle, Gemma Rogers, Rob Moss & Skin-Tight Skin, KEELEY and MD After Hussain & Paq…
