OCTA Music Weekly – Episode #119

Another week, another new music weekly.

Back with the weekly release round up. Still slightly rushed effort and therefore this might have even more holes than normally.

January release schedule is always a bit slow, but we have a couple of big album releases. Namely from Pearl Charles, Buck Meek and Matthew Sweet. Other new international full-lenghts on the playlist are from Midnight Sister, Kate Davis. Oh yeah and great live record from Daniel Norgren. A few EPs too from Christian Lee Hutson and Death Cab for Cutie.

A couple Finnish treasures too. There’s a new EP from Treemer, new album from Radio Supernova and single from Black Twig. Oh yeah and I also included the EP from Haamusoittajat. That was a Bandcamp release in late 2020 that now become available on these streaming services too. I think it’s absolutely wonderful, so check it out if you missed it at the time.

Some sweet international singles too. I loved that Steady Holiday song and the music video is super lovely as well. Other favorites came from Hiss Golden Messenger, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Jess Locke, Renee Reed, Lael Neale, Wild Earp, Parker Millsap, Aviva Le Fey and Painted Shrines. Just to name a few. You’ll find all the rest equally good tunes from the list below.

That’s it for this week. Thank you for reading and listening. Love from a distance.

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.
