OCTA Music Weekly – Episode #110

Another week, another new music weekly.

Again trying to sum up the new releases of the week. A lot happened again, so I’m sure I missed ton. I’m just one man after all and onechordnet is just a hobby and not a proper music media. But I’ll do what I can to share the songs that have found a home in my heart.

There’s lot to love this week. Several long time blog favorites released great new albums. Becky Warren, Sam Moss, Widower, Rachel Brooke, Jeff Tweedy, Laura Veirs and Adrianne Lenker for example fall into this category. There’s also some fairly new favorites like Skyway Man, Felix Hatfield, Emilee Emiko (ep) Raye Zaragoza, David Quinn and Stephanie Lambring. Oh yeah and there’s a new record from Bruce Springsteen too. That comes quite late on the playlist, because I’m sure you don’t come here looking for the Boss. That’s again just to name a few. Here’s a full list of album/EP releases that were on my radar. Some are a few weeks old that I only just found.

As for things that are not streaming (A good to remember that Bandcamp beats Spotify every time), there’s at least the new McCarthy Trenching album that I just found minutes ago thanks to Desert Blonde. I’ve only listened to a little bit, but I think I instantly fell in love with it. I need to give it a listen tomorrow.

The highlight of the Finnish release week is the Bizzarro & Jukka Nissinen album. There were also albums from Seksihullut, Flush and Faarao Pirttikangas plus a new single from Tams on the playlist.

As for international singles, there’s a new collaboration from Kacy & Clayton and Marlon Williams. That’s rather exciting if you ask me. Micah Schnabel’s new single is now streaming too. It has been on Bandcamp for a little while longer. That Molly Parden song is pure gold. Sierra Ferrell is made her official Rounder debut with a double single. That’s a big deal. And plenty of other beautiful things that you can find by reading the list below or by just listening to it.

Playlist Archive

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.
