OCTA Weekly Playlist #58

Another week, another weekly playlist

Anniversary celebration is over and the blog returns to normal routine. Thanks again to every artists who made a video for the anniversary festival and every reader who watched them. If you want to revisit the action hit the links in the left sidebar. There’s a handy youtube playlist for easy browsing and sharing. So check that out if you want to hear brand new songs from Anna Tivel, Haley Heynderickx, Jeffrey Martin, Micah Schnabel.. and so much more. I love each and every video and I’m completely stunned that 68 artists wanted to take part on the anniversary festival of this little music blog. But it’s time to start focusing on the next 18 years and I’ll start with the weekly playlist. This time there’s albums and songs from the past three weeks, because I did not have enough time to compile this playlist during the celebration. This also means that I probably forgot to include a lot of stuff and a lot of it even slipped under my radar (it wasn’t even really on for a while there). So feel free to hit me up, if something important is missing. I also couldn’t include as much singles as normally, because the list is way too long as it is. I will mostly likely return to the weekly update from now on. It’s a lot of work, but in some strange way it seems easier to do it every week.

Carrying on to the new albums. I’ll start with the 27th September release day, which was pretty amazing. Albums from John Calvin Abney, Will Johnson, Dori Freeman, Michaela Anne, Billy Strings, Red River Dialect, Sturgill Simpson, Field Guides, Coyote Brother, Sofia Talvik, Tiny Ruins (solo versions of Olympic Girls), Jack Klatt, Cataldo, The Orphan Brigade, Gratiot Lake Road, M Horton Smith, Charlie Parr and a very special EP from Black Sea Dahu.

If we look further back the previous two release fridays, this playlist features a song from the albums by Sidney Lindner & The Silver Wilderness Collective, Hiss Golden Messenger, Paper Beat Scissors, Brittany Howard, Vincent Neil Emerson, Charley Crockett, Bror Gunnar Jansson, Darrin Bradbury, Anna Ash, The Lonesome Billies, Lauren Pratt, Neal Francis, Pieta Brown, Jeremy Ivey, Kate Teague and Andrew Combs. Plus a song from the EPs by JP Harris and William Alexander.

This one has a lot of great Finnish material too. There’s a song from the long-waited Iron Country Sisters debut in the beginning and later on a Finnish language section that features a song from the wonderful new albums by Viitasen Piia and Litku Klemetti and the new singles from Knipi, J.Matkala and STINAKO. Plus a Finnish indie classic Purkkaa by Tolbiac, because he just put out a compilation called Sketches (2001-2004).

Not as many international singles as normally, because this is already so long that I’ll need to buy a beer for anyone who has the time to listen to the whole thing until the very end. But some very special still like the new ones from Matt Dorrien, Logan Ledger, Hallelujah the Hills, Vetiver, Daniel Martin Moore, Simon Joyner..

So there you have it again, if someone was missing the playlist. Other kind of written posts should continue too, but I try not to promise too much. This is still just a hobby and there’s the the dayjob and other life things taking my time and energy too. All the best and lots of 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.
