Another week, Another weekly playlist.
This one was a slightly busier release week. Especially Canada provided a lot of great music this week. I was thrilled about the new albums from Daniel Romano, Foxwarren (Andy Shauf’s new project), the new single from Ian Daniel Kehoe (who formerly operated under the Marine Dreams moniker) and Julie Arsenault’s new EP (this one is not available on Spotify, but listen/it on her bandcamp, it’s wonderful).
Other big album releases were from Jeff Tweedy and Monteagle. I don’t really know anything about Michelle Petrie, but I liked her new album when I quickly listened to it last night and therefore that’s on the list too. I need to listen to it more properly when I have the time.
Lots of magnificent singles too. Tiny Ruins, Durand Jones & The Indications, Roseanne Reid, Molly Parden, Ally Kerr, Janne Tapion Sisäinen Avaruus, Michael Chapman, Harlem, Taylor Janzen, Phoebe Bridgers, Hayes Carll etc. 2019 is already looking rather great, but I suppose I need to wrap up this 2018 next. I think I’ll start focusing on that next weekend.
Some songs have again been out a while, because either I just found them or just haven’t shared them before. A couple of Christmas tunes too, but I didn’t want to add them too much so early in December.

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.
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
