OCTA Music Weekly – Episode #122

Another week, another new music weekly.

This seemed like a surprisingly slow release week or I managed to miss a lot of good stuff. Could go either way. The big ones for me this week were the new album from Steady Holiday and new EP from Tiffany Williams. We also got excellent new releases from Avi Vinocur, Wolf van Elfmand, Mac Leaphart, Beth Lee, The Craig Torso Show and Rue Snider (live EP). Because it was a bit slow week, I revisited bunch of great albums from last week’s monster list.

The Finnish section is also super short with just the singles from Tams and Jonas and I. There had to be more.

And last but not least the international singles. There’s a new one from Melissa Carper and just like the first, it’s absolutely wonderful. I can’t wait to hear the album, because I really love these advance singles. Elephant Micah announced a new album and released a single. That is always a big deal. The new Dan Edmonds single is also pure gold. Hand Habits and Little Mazarn dropped some cover magic. Then there’s some pop treats later on like singles from The Legal Matters, Why Dogs Why and Radio Days. And that’s just to name a few.

That’s it for this week. 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.
