OCTA Weekly Playlist – Episode #75

Another week, another weekly playlist.

Sorry for another really slow blog week. Somehow these days just fly by at the moment, but here’s at least the weekly release round up and the playlist.

This felt like a surprisingly slow release week, but maybe I just missed a lot of stuff due to various reasons. There’s still quite a lot to listen to and the week brought new albums from Kyle Forester, Sarah Harmer, Six Organs of Admittance, Katie Pruitt, Guided By Voices, Greg Dulli, Dustin Lovelis, K. Skelton, Wilsen, Joe Nolan, Nora Jane Struthers, All the Real Girls, Rose Cousins and Her Silo. Plus EPs from Aaron Beckum, David Garnham and the Reasons to Live. Gregory Pepper album and Small Sur and Sunfruits EPs are a week or so old, but I missed them on an earlier playlist update.

The home shore highlight this week was the release of the Toni Hautamäki ja Ydinrauha album. I’ve really enjoyed these songs live and it’s great to be able to hear them on a record as well. Other Finnish treasures this week are new singles from Veli, Mitä helvettiä nyt taas, Rosita Luu and Stinako (feat Antti Autio).

There’s a bunch of wonderful singles too. Peter Oren, Dana Gavanski, Lilly Hiatt and Samantha Crain continued to release advance singles from their forthcoming albums. Low Cut Connie and Kyle Cox have great new ones too and that V.V. Lightbody song is really special. And everything else would also be worth namedrop, but you’ll find them below.

That’s it for this week. Maybe and hopefully I manage to do a bit more next week, but no definite promises whatsoever. I kinda temporarily lost the spark that justifies spending most of my spare time into something that has zero relevance, but I’ll find it eventually. 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.
