OCTA Music Weekly – Episode #134

Another week, another new music weekly.

Here we are again going through the finest new music releases of the week. First apologies for sleeping on Rosali’s singles. I haven’t featured them here, because was unaware how great the songs were. I listened the album last night and instantly loved it. It’s my top pick of the week along with Charlie Marie, Fiver and Will Stratton that have been featured here quite well during the album cycle. Other great album releases this week came from Blue Cactus, American Aquarium (covers), Dorothea Paas, Peter Doran, Sam Tudor, Natalie Bergman, Maia Sharp, Tejon Street Corner Thieves, Carter Tanton and Ted Russell Kamp.

As for Finnish stuff, there’s new albums from Maa ilmasta and Eero Marila plus a run of singles from Pambikallio, Janne Tapion Sisäinen Avaruus, Grant Wood Company and Tomi Nordlund & Syvä Joki.

Last but not least the international (should-be) hit singles. My personal favorite is probably the new single from Libby DeCamp. I can’t wait to hear her record. If you are into power pop and such melodic treasures there’s a new David Myhr single from a forthcoming EP. We also have more advance singles from the forthcoming albums by John Andrews & The Yawns, Tristen, Amythyst Kiah, Bill and The Belles, Shay Martin Lovette and so forth. Again just to name a few. They are all worth a namedrop, but you’ll find the list below.

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.
