OCTA Weekly Playlist – Episode #95

Another week, another weekly playlist.

A bit ahead of schedule, because I have some weekend plans. Hopefully I didn’t miss too much good stuff due to this rush. I might add something later on. If you planned on listening last week’s playlist on this Saturday, you can check out the weekly playlist archive over here. I move the songs from the old weekly playlist over there and they’ll stay there for few months.

Quite a lot to love this weekend. New albums from Joshua Ray Walker, The Jayhawks, Margo Price, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Kalen & Aslyn, Tedo Stone, Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Juniper Berries, The Beths, The Clientele (collection of early rarities), Nick Zubeck (now on Spotify), Rufus Wainwright and My Morning Jacket.

Finnish highlight of the week is the Helmi Levyt double single blast from Amuri and Rosita Luu. There’s also a new single from Tahtoisin kertoa sinulle tarinan.

My favorite international single of the week is the new Emily Barker song. Other faves came from Skyway Man (who joined the Mama Bird Family), Robert Chaney, Emma Kupa, India Ramey, Kathleen Edwards and so forth. You’ll find them all below. Update: added new singles from Jeremy Squires, William Matheny and Sylvie Simmons.

That’s it for this week. 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.
