OCTA Weekly Playlist Episode #52

Another week, another weekly playlist.

It’s been an insanely hot week in Finland (probably elsewhere even hotter). Therefore spending a lot of time on the computer searching for new music wasn’t my top priority this week. So I’m sure I missed a lot of good stuff. The good news for both me and this little blog is that I’m on vacation for the next two weeks. I’ll try to catch up on some of the blog stuff and plan the forthcoming 18th anniversary festival too (more info here, if you would like to participate in this online festival) I might skip this weekly playlist next week though and try the biweekly thing and see if it works better or not. I haven’t really decided it yet. So there might or might not be a new playlist next Sunday.

This hot week also gave us a lot of hot new albums. Florist and Jordan Moser were the big ones for me, but I’m also looking forward to diving into the new albums from Strange Ranger, Angie McMahon, Eamon Fogerty, Mikey Erg, Chuck Hawthorne, Chris Gantry, Luray and Erisy Watt. There some really wonderful EPs too from Philippe Bronchtein, Rayland Baxter (Mac Miller Tribute), Simon Linsteadt, Slow Healer and Bright Raven (this last one is a week old).

The lone Finnish entry is the awesome new single from Hulda Huima. I’m sure there had to be here.

There’s plenty of those singles too. It didn’t take long for The Highwomen to release another single. Some other big faves came from Henry Black, Black Sea Dahu, Ana Egge, Will Johnson, Sunny War, Dori Freeman, Jason Hawk Harris, Ben Danaher and Jason Tyler Burton. But as usual, I could just as well namedrop them all on this text too. I put them here because I liked them.

That’s it for this week. There will be some blog posts next week, because I have a bit of time to write them thanks to the vacation from the dayjob. I need to spend some time just resting too, because I badly needed this vacation. Both the mind and the body. Always love.

Playlist link

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.
