Another week, another weekly playlist.
I tried, but it was too difficult to skip this list this week, because so much good stuff came out both internationally and in Finland. I’ll try again next week. On other news, I’ve been mostly planning that 18th anniversary festival and it’s going on quite nicely. If you want to be a part of it either as an artist or as a member of the audience (in both cases this happens wherever you are), hit those links in the right column for more information.
The biggest album release of the week was the new Tyler Childers album, but there’s so much more and most of them seem to be excellent based on very brief listening at this point. New albums came from Mike and the Moonpies, RF Shannon, Shotgun Jimmie, Bad Heaven Ltd, Karine Polwart, Angela Perley, Elaina Kay, The Teskey Brothers, Joseph Robert Krauss, Tenement & Temple, Native Harrow (euro-release), Jade Imagine, Jordan Jones, Taylor Hollingsworth, Matt York, Edan Archer, Deadbeat Beat and Rainy Eyes. That took a while to write let alone listen. The Paranoid Style also makes first appearance this week, I missed that a week ago. There’s also a new EP from Andandending.
Three new great Finnish albums too this week from verões, The New Magnetic North and Pykäri. The new single from Tyynyt is the fourth Finnish entry to this list.
And as usual a ton of new singles. For examples new ones from the forthcoming albums from Esther Rose and Leslie Stevens. Really looking forward to those. Vincent Neil Emerson is another big favorite this week. He is a new one to me, but I will keep an eye on him after this wonderful tune. Everything else would be worthy of a name drop too, but you’ll find them from the list below.
That’s it for now. I’m on vacation for one more week, so I’ll try to do some blog posts early in the week. Later on I need to catch the Pat Reedy concert somewhere in this country, because he is coming over to play in Finland late in the week. All the best and love.

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.
