OCTA Weekly Playlist – Episode #80

Another week, another weekly playlist.

This was quite a monster release week and I just didn’t have enough time to listen everything that came out. So don’t use this one as your only source. There’s way more than I had time to include here.

The new Lilly Hiatt album was the big one for me, but there’s a whole lot more. The week brought new albums from Dana Gavanski, Jennah Barry, Waxahatchee, Nap Eyes, Clem Snide, Margaret Glaspy, Jesse Daniel, Jim Lauderdale, Daniel Romano (live album), Basia Bulat, Jim Andralis & The Syntonics, Zoe Fox and the Rocket Clocks, Amy LaVere, Brian Fallon, Cable Ties, Lemon Pitch, Anthony Da Costa and Phi-Psonics. Plus an EP from Ada Lea.

The Finnish highlight is the new Joose Keskitalo album. Other home shore picks are the singles from Arppa, V.Härkönen, Pelko, Vasas flora och fauna and Antti Pouta feat Ylva Haru.

And then there’s obviously lots of gorgeous singles. The new Andrew Bryant single was probably the brightest star for me, because I’m such a big fan. Other treasures include the likes of Caleb Caudle, A.O.Gerber, Joshua Ray Walker, Christian Lee Hutson, Esther Rose, Craig Finn and so forth. I could namedrop them all, but you’ll find them below.

That’s it for this week. Take care everyone. Love love love.

Oh and do buy the vinyl/cd/download. Spotify and other streaming services are perfect for these introductory purposes, but try to buy at least the music that matter the most to you

If you are looking this after a week has gone, the embedded Spotify will show the latest playlist. I’ll just update the same playlist because a) if someone wants to follow it, they can just follow that one list and will get a new set of songs each Sunday b) so that I don’t have a trillion of different playlists on my Spotify account.

OCTA Weekly Playlist – Episode #79

Another week, another weekly playlist.

I haven’t been able to fully concentrate on music and probably missed a few things during the week. I’m gonna do the playlist anyway, even though Friday was again a great reminder how important it is to buy music. Bandcamp didn’t take a cut on that day and it was fun day to buy music with fellow fans and do some good in the midst of these difficult times. It felt good to be a part of that and forget everything else for a little while.

This week we got new albums from Girlatones, Henry Black, Mapache, Sea Wolf and Empty Country. Plus EPs from Terry’s Paradise, Charlotte Cornfield and Josh Farrow. There’s also Jacob Furr and Lyre EPs here from last week.

Finnish highlights of the week were new singles from Hermaja and joku iiris. I’m also revisiting the wonderful Kalevi Suopursu album from last week.

Some fabulous singles too from Jennah Barry, Dana Gavanski, American Aquarium, Sylvia Rose Novak, Tommy Alexander and so forth.

That’s it for this week. A bit shorter list this time around. I don’t know is that a good or bad thing. Next week is a bit of monster release week, if I remember correctly. So this will get bigger than. Anyway, take care everyone. Love love love.

OCTA Weekly Playlist – Episode #78

Another week, another weekly playlist.

It was tough week to concentrate on music or anything really. Therefore no other updates than this weekly playlist. Thank you music though. I would be lost without you.

The new albums from Sam Doores and Maya De Vitry have been my early favorites, but the week also gave new albums from Early James, Monophonics, Joel Henry Little, Gabe Lee, Kellen of Troy, Dave Simonett, Dietrich Strause, Fanny Lumsden, Josaleigh Pollett and Former Ruins. The album from Sweet Megg is a few weeks older, but back then it wasn’t on Finnish Spotify. Now I noticed that it is. Then there’s also EPs from Anna Lynch and Andrea Von Kampen.

The big one from Finland is the new Kalevi Suopursu album (also by far my favorite release of the week altogether). The album from Ninni Forever Band is also a great one and then there’s gorgeous singles from Nightbird, Tvärtom and Ghost World. Plus revisiting the Laura Moisio album that came out a week ago. I still love it dearly.

The best music news of the week was that Luka Kuplowsky has joined Mama Bird family. They start their journey together with a covers EP and first song surfaced earlier in the week. Other single highlights this week came from Cayley Thomas, Ali Holder, Joey O’Neill, Jack Grelle, Strawberry Heritage, Anna Burch, Dan Reeder, Ron Sexsmith, Nap Eyes, Reb Fountain and so forth. Every track would be worthy of a namedrop, so just hit play and love them. One of my big favorites J.E.Sunde also has a new song available in some parts of the world. Not yet in Finland, so I can’t include it here but check it out elsewhere.

That’s it for this week. I hope I get some stuff done next week, but no promises whatsoever. Take care everyone and love love love.
