On the Velvet Sheep radio show, I play the bestest 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 key players with “songs for ewe” are:

Doug McCombs (Tortoise/Eleventh Dream Day)
Tim Presley (White Fence)
Chris Olley (Six By Seven)
Trevor Dunn (Tomahawk/Melvins)

Plus we’ve got new tunes from the likes of Telefis, Inca Babies, Swami John Reis, Even As We Speak, Psychic Graveyard, Kev Hopper and Half Man Half Biscuit…
