On the Velvet Sheep radio show, I play the best 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 diverting subversives include “songs for ewe” from:

David Fair (Half Japanese)
Jim White (Dirty Three/Xylorious White)
Kev Hopper (Stump/Dimple Discs)
Eli Janney (GVSB)
Maya Shenfield (Thrill Jockey Records)

Plus new tunes from Eric Chenaux, Useless Users, Matchless, EXEK & JD Pinkus to name a few…
