Another week, another weekly playlist.
Another week also kind of slipped by. I’m a hopeless case of kid in denial. Now sligthly flu-ish and fever-ish too. But here’s at least the playlist. Things are slowing down a bit on the release front, but there’s still lot to love.
This week gave new album from Little Scream, Nick Nace, Simon Joyner, Allison Moorer, Ancient Shapes, Extra Arms, Daystar, Amy O, Theo Lawrence, Jason Sinkhorn, Jim Sullivan (reissue that I don’t usually feature them on this list, but it felt hard to leave this one out), Ben McKenzie, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, The Leaf Library and Mikal Cronin. Slow Healer has been out for a week or so, but first time on this playlist. I had a song from the EP earlier.
On the Finnish side of things, we got the debut album from Maustetytöt. It’s a great record and worth the hype. Also superb that the vinyl sold so well (because this is Spotify is great for introduction, but buying music is what really matters). Nice to heart that physical records still have other purpose than to fill that empty space under the publisher’s bed. The Finland section also contains new singles from Treemer (new band from ex-Pansies!) and PK Keränen (solo single). Plus a song from the Kalle Konnuslahti & Tremolo album that I somehow managed to miss a couple of weeks ago.
A bunch of wonderful international singles too. I’m a big Andy Shauf fan so his first single from a new album starts the whole list. There’s also new Itasca, David Myhr, Ags Connolly, David Dondero and so forth. Again everything would be worth of a namedrop, but you’ll find them from the list below.

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.
