OCTA Music Weekly – Episode #127

Another week, another new music weekly.

This one is a big week, because we got new albums from Melissa Carper and Michael Feuerstack. I love these records and I can guarantee you will find them from my EOTY lists if this blog and world still exists at the end of 2021. That’s obviously not all and there’s also great new releases from Janet Simpson, Emmett Morris (EP), Sarah King (EP), Son of the Velvet Rat, Joe Pug (Only side A on streaming services), The Bones of J.R. Jones (EP), New Bums, Loretta Lynn, Nuevo, Becca Mancari (EP), Morgan Wade and The Golden Roses.

A rather excellent release week here in Finland too, because we got new albums from Litku Klemetti, Pekka Laine, Väisänen and AK-77 plus an EP from V.Härkönen. The playlist also has the new Matti single.

And last but not least the international singles. A new favorite Chris Acker released a new single as did the all-time faves Teenage Fanclub. A new find of the week for me was Cassidy Snider & The Wranglers. I really liked that single and I’m eager to hear more. My favorite Tasmanians Quivers signed a deal with the coolest labels Bobo Integral and Ba Da Bing and announced a new album. Libby DeCamp released another magical song as did Charlie Marie. Zach Schmidt returned with a new single and so forth. If you want something a bit different, that Sweet Megg & Ricky Alexander is very charming. There’s also the new Shonna Tucker song that has been on Bandcamp a while. If it has been on Spotify before, I have missed it. And of course I might as well namedrop em all, but you’ll find them below.

That’s all for this week. I know I forgot something. Happens every week these days. Some might take that as a hint and quit, but I suppose I’m too stubborn. 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.
