OCTA Music Weekly – Episode #160

Another week, another new music weekly.

Sorry for the small delay. I had some errands and internet connection trouble on Saturday and didn’t had the time to work on this until I woke up on Sunday. Which was 2pm actually. I guess I needed the sleep. Anyway, here are the new releases from this week.

A big release week. The album of the week has to be the new Margo Cilker album. I’ve loved all singles and this has been one of my most anticipated record this fall. Such a great record. Another very big deal is that we have new music from Joey Kneiser (Glossary). He has teamed up with another excellent songwriter Lew Card and together they are called Golden and Rust and just released a beautiful debut album. Then we also have a new album from Charles Wesley Godwin who took the americana world by storm with a powerful album a couple years back and this follow-up is equally impressive. And of course that’s just a fraction of all of the action and we also great new releases from The Roseline, Zachary Lucky (cover album), The Landovers (EP), Megan Nash, Aimee Mann, Jennifer O’Connor, Henry Parker, Courtney Hartman, Renee Reed (EP), Neal Francis, Curtis Harding, Mojohand, This Lonesome Paradise, Tasha, Beau Jennings & The Tigers, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Snail Mail, Alicia Stockman and some fairly unknown pop group called ABBA.

Not that many Finnish picks this week, but there are lovely new singles from Marian Valinta, Ananas, Samanna and Bad Sauna.

As for international singles, there’s so much to love and several big personal long time favorites have new songs out there in this lovely world of ours. I’m referring to artists such as Matt Dorrien, Heather Valley, Christian Lee Hutson, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, The Burning Hell, The Explorers Club and Claire Cronin. From a bit more recent favorites (not that they are new to this playlist), I really like the new ones from Iris Marlowe, David James Allen and Lucy Langlas. Just to name a few.

That’s all for this week. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. 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.
