OCTA Weekly Playlist Episode #42

Another week, another weekly playlist.

No surprises that I didn’t manage to do anything else during the week. This time I actually even had a reason, because a bit too high rest heart rate gave my troubled mind some further concerns. I had an EKG to check the heart and blood tests to see that my levothyroxine medication is on a proper level. Everything was ok (other than the rest pulse), so I suppose can breathe a little easier. I still haven’t felt perfectly ok since Easter or something. Probably just has something to do with the hypothyroidism. Sort of a vicious cycle though, because I’m the worrying kind and such things tend to add stress and makes it hard to fall asleep. And not getting enough sleep isn’t exactly helping the situation. Well at least I can get some blog stuff done, because here I am writing this at 5 am because I wasn’t able to get some sleep. But enough with the personal mumbo jumbo and time to get on this week’s playlist.

The list is insanely long this week, because there was so much good stuff. New albums from Kelly Hunt, Jeremy Squires and Lucy Roleff were on the top of my list of albums to listen. Other beautiful new albums this week are from Josh Nolan, Blue Jeans, Sailors & Ships, Paper Wings and The National. Karly Driftwood and Rosie Harlow & The Tall Tale Boys came out earlier in the spring, but I missed these lovely records back then. Some gorgeous EPs too from Lydia Cole & Hailey Beavis, Kathryn Legendre, Nick Lowe, Briston Maroney and Elton John Cena.

The small Finnish section contains three awesome new singles from Janne Tapion Sisäinen Avaruus, MeriTuuli and Samae Koskinen.

The singles made this ridiculously long this week. New Tyler Childers single was the news of the week, but for example the new ones from red steppes, Erin Durant, Shane Leonard, Merival, Joseph Robert Krauss, Matthew Ryan are equally magnificent. I could just as well namedrop them all, but you’ll find the full list below.

And as usual some big favorites from earlier weeks reappear with another song. I think I’m gonna keep that Matthew Milia album here at least five weeks, because I just love it to bits. That’s it for this week. Not sure how next week goes with other posts. At least I need to get my act together first and get some sleep. 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.
