OCTA Weekly Playlist – Episode #82

Another week, another weekly playlist.

Thank you music for keeping me relatively sane. Here’s the new release round up of the week and the playlist.

My big four for the week were the new albums from Joey O’Neil, Ali Holder, Jess Jocoy and Maybel. I’ve loved all the advance singles and of course the albums turned out to be great. That just a tiny fraction of all the action and there’s also new albums from Pokey LaFarge, Dalton Domino, Nathan Kalish, Van Darien, John Anderson, Charley Crockett, Trace Mountains, Jackie Lynn, Laura Marling and People Years. A couple of big favorites The Deep Dark Woods and Kristina Murray released surprise EPs and Jeremy Squires put his excellent cover collection to streaming services.

On the Finnish section we have new great singles from Lätsä, Pöllöt, Love Sport, Untogethers, Jukka Ruottinen and Heikki Rasilo. Plus revisiting Veli’s home recordings, because everybody loves Veli.

As usual, there’s a whole lot of gorgeous singles too. For example a couple of new ones from the Mama Bird family (Jenny O and Luka Kuplowsky). There’s also new ones from long time favourites Phoebe Bridgers, Samantha Crain, Woods, John Statz. Holy Hive and Tommy Alexander tracks are pure gold and so forth. Everything is a worth of a name drop, so check them out below or better yet, listen to the whole thing.

That it’s for this week. Stay safe and sane. Love from a distance.

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.
