OCTA Weekly Playlist Episode #47

Another week, another weekly playlist.

It sort of looks like there’s even less point to do this during these summer months. Apparently people have other things to do in the summer than listen to an hours long weekly playlist. Who would have thought? I suppose I still keep on doing this through the summer too, because I’m sort of stubborn plus I’m so close to 50 episodes. And the release schedule is still very strong and the week brought lots of great new records. I had been eagerly waiting for the Pony Bradshaw and Bedouine albums. The release date changed for both, but now they are finally here and are totally worth the wait. That just a tip of the record mountain though. There’s new full-length albums from Fernando Viciconte, Merival, Stanley Brinks & The Wave Pictures, Black Pumas, Drivin N Cryin, Mannequin Pussy, The Raconteurs, Guidon Bear, Fruit Bats, Willie Nelson, Jim Lauderdale, Chuck Mead, Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis and Fell Runner. Peter Bruntnell has been out a while, don’t know how I managed to miss that one, because I’ve been fan a couple of decades. On the EP front there’s new ones The Rumblins of Spring (new project by Matt Paxton) and Hackensaw Boys.

The small Finland section contains a new EP from Tams, a new single from Since November and the White Jackets single that I missed a week ago. I’m sure there had to be more.

And as usual a ton of brilliant new singles. Some personal faves were the new songs from Tyler Childers, Leslie Stevens, Matt Woods, Jason Hawk Harris, The Hold Steady, Beth Bombara, Joanna Sternberg, Rue Snider, Andrew Combs, Joseph Robert Krauss and Zachary Lucky.

That’s all for now. I know I missed a lot of stuff again, because NHL Draft and midsummer took a lot of time from my weekend. Back next Sunday with a new playlist and before that one of those silly Four Arms to Hold You post in the middle of the week. Love love 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
