OCTA Weekly Playlist – Episode #74

Another week, another weekly playlist.

Sorry for the lack of updates past week. It was busier than I assumed and non-blog related things took my time. But here’s at least the playlist for the week.

This week Mo Troper led the charge with the release of his new pop treasure. The week also brought new albums from Little Misty, Caitlin Sherman, Nathaniel Rateliff, Tami Neilson, Alexander, Personality Cult, Tracy McNeil & The Good Life and Robert Vincent. Plus then there’s an album from Ryley and a week old album from Alfie Firmin that I missed at the time.

Some Finnish ones this week too. I’m especially fond of the new Laura Moisio single. There’s also new singles from The New Magnetic North and Pelko along with album cuts from the new full-lengths by Lyyti, Pietarin Spektaakkeli and Puhelinseksi.

The new Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit single was the big event of the week. Some other personal favorites this week were the latest singles from Jess Jocoy, Ron Sexsmith, MAITA, Charlotte Cornfield, Witch’s Wall and Field Report, but as usual everything else could just as well be namedropped on this text too.

That’s it for this week’s new release round up. I hope I manage to do more blog things next week, but no definite promises.

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.
