OCTA Music Weekly – Episode #145

Another week, another new music weekly.

A bit behind schedule, because I spent the weekend following my other passion. I know more about who went 43rd overall the NHL Draft than I know what releases came out this week. This stuff had to wait until Sunday morning this week, because of all draft and trade action in the NHL and I probably missed a lot by just quickly putting this together.

I think that I start with the international singles this time around, because there’s some that matter a great deal to me. Hezekiah Jones and Myriam Gendron are big personal favorites and they both released a wonderful new single this week. I think for Hezekiah Jones it’s just a single, but a special one for sure. As for Myriam Gendron, there’s a whole new album coming out this fall and I can’t wait to hear it. I’ve already deserved a spot for it on my EOTY list. Those two are not all though. The new Sylvie project sounds absolute marvellous and then there’s also new singles from Corinne Sharlet, Kashena Sampson, Mercy Bell, Ryan Curtis, Nathan Kalish, Sean Rowe, Monnene Alone, Andrew Gabbard and Beachwood Sparks & GospelbeacH (Neal Casal cover). Again just to name a few. You’ll find them all below.

This seems to somewhat slower release week on the album front. At least based on my not that deep glance. There’s some great ones though like new Mega Bog, Rodney Crowell, Pony Hunt, Emily Duff, Leon Bridges and Robert Harrison (solo from Cotton Mather leader).

The Finnish treasures this week are singles from The New Magnetic North, Gim Kordon, Katnes and Tuomo (this last one has been out a few weeks).

That’s it for this week. I’ll try to do a better job next week. At least things should get quieter on NHL after Wednesday’s free agency. 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. If you want to find the older ones I’ve moved them to the weekly playlist archive. So hit that link above and I’m sure you’ll find this playlist too.
