Another week, another weekly playlist.
A quick weekly playlist and release round up in the mid of the midsummer. This week sees the release of my favorite song of the year. If this blog / world still exists at the end of 2020, it’s very likely that the onechordnet song of the year will be I Don’t Care To Dance by J.E. Sunde. I’ve loved it since I saw this live at Pony Rug video and I’m thrilled that it’s now officially out and available. It just resonates so deeply with my shy, insecure and overly romantic soul. I love it as much as you can possibly love a song. It’s my heart in a song.
The big album releases came from Phoebe Bridgers, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, but there’s also great new albums from Julian Taylor, The Speedways, Darlin’ Brando, The Boomswagglers, Don Bryant, Jill Barber, Kristen Grainger & The True North, Grayson Capps (retrospective), Josh Kimbrough and DG Solaris. Plus EPs from Karima Walker & Katy Kirby, Mukiss and Starflyer 59.
oh and there’s new Twain album that’s only available on Bandcamp. I purchased copy yesterday, but I haven’t listened yet. I’m 100% sure it’s gorgeous, so check that out too.
Onwards to the Finnish section. My new big love Teini-Pää has their new single now on Spotify and it’s of course superb. Long time faves Mitä helvettiä nyt taas also released a fabulous new single and Pöllöt released a surprise EP right after their 2020 album. The playlist also has new singles from Arppa, Suad and Tahtoisin kertoa sinulle tarinan and also revisits Veli’s album from last week.
Plenty of good singles too along with the aforementioned J.E. Sunde song. Some personal faves came from Vincent Neil Emerson, Colter Wall, Erin Enderlin, Michaela Anne and Gold Star Gold Star.
That’s it for this week. Love from a distance.

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.
