OCTA Weekly Playlist Episode #45

Another week, another weekly playlist.

For months I’ve done too little, this week I did a bit too much. Sorry if I overwhelmed you with the posts. I’m fully aware it was too much. Just wanted to catch up a little bit. The posting frequency will get significantly slower very soon. Of course the Four Arms to Hold You posts are kind of silly too and I will see if I carry on making them. They would never fit on a proper music media, but might still fit well to this overly romantic music blog where my only guideline has been to passionately love music.

The summer hasn’t slowed the release schedule. At least not significantly. So far I’ve spent most time with the new albums from Jacob Miller, Loamlands, Mariee Sioux and Jake Xerxes Fussell (yeah, Loamlands took a bit of head start and was here a couple of weeks ago, there was a bit of a mix-up and the actual release date was 7th of June). There’s so much more though and the week gave us new albums from Peter Perrett, Stef Chura, Palehound, Olivia Barton, Dylan LeBlanc, The Hollering Pines, Damn Tall Buildings, Eleni Mandell, Oliver Ray, Haybaby and Vanishing Twin. Teal Moss album is a month or so old, but I just found it this week so it’s here for the first time. A couple of excellent EPs too from Charlie Whitten and Jordie Lane.

The Finnish section is very small this time around. Only revisiting the Janne Tapion Sisäinen Avaruus album and featuring the new album from Hot Heros and the new Markus Perttula single. I’m sure there had to be more, so drop me an email if you so wish.

And then there’s obviously lots of magnificent singles. The big news of the week was that there’s a new Jesse Malin album coming out and it will produced by Lucinda Williams. The first single is already out and available. Some other personal faves came from Mercy Bell, Bedouine, Angela Perley, Malin Pettersen, V.V.Lightbody and David Ritschard, but again I could just as well namedrop them all. They are on the playlist because I liked them.

Some previously featured albums also appear with a new song, but that’s all for now. Next week’s playlist won’t be up on Sunday, because I have some Sthlm Americana plans for the weekend. I still try to do it, but it will be either Monday or Tuesday. Just in case somebody actually cares and waits for this. Some blog entries should appear before the weekend though. Remember 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.
