OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #171

Another week, another new music weekly.

A big week in music, because we have a new Erin Rae album in this world. Absolutely love it based on a few early spins and I don’t expect my feelings to change in the future. Josienne Clarke’s EP and the new album from The Reds, Pinks and Purples also matter a great deal to me. There’s plenty more though, which I will listen more thoroughly during the week. We have new albums from The High Water Marks, Ryan Allen (EP that has been on Bandcamp a couple of weeks, Matt Fockler, Mikayla McVey, Gold Light, Jana Pochop, Mitski, Carl Schilde, Cate Le Bon, Seafarers, Heal & Harrow, Marissa Nadler (EP), Love, Burns, Good Morning Bedlam and The Rave-Ups.

From Finland there’s new albums from Keidas, Rohkeat Kuvat and Ite Eerola. Plus a Kalevala themed various artists collection that features some of my favorite artists like Kielo Kärkkäinen and Laura Moisio. Then there’s also great singles from Pintandwefall and M.

And finally the international (should be) single hits. That Lucy Dacus single is fabulous and perhaps my favorite along with the new Joshua Hedley song. We also got gold from David Quinn, Caroline Spence, Scott Ballew, Dana Gavanski, Cactum Blossoms, Bastards of Soul, Young Guv, Ryan Dugre, Triptides, Arre! Arre!, Bastards of Soul, Jacksonport and many others.

That’s it for this week. I did write a few short blog posts this week. I’m not sure are such small things helpful, but I guess it can’t hurt either. Maybe I’ll continue. Don’t really know for sure. This new music weekly is still on Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music. Choose the one you hate the least and buy some music if you are able to do that. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. Love from a distance.

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.
