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 shadowy people on a shadowy planet choosing “songs for ewe” are:
Caspar Brotzmann
Quatermass III
Japanese Television
Evil Blizzard

Plus new tunes from Osees, Oog Bogo, Nik Colk Void, Stealing Sheep and Kamikaze Palm Tree
