OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #174

Another week, another new music weekly.

I don’t really know if I should post this right now, but maybe music and art make sense even when the world doesn’t.

A lot of great albums came out this week. No clear cut album of the week so Sophie & The Broken Things, Philippe Bronchtein and Carson McHone can share that honor. Heather Valley’s EP is another big one in my books. That’s not all though I’m really digging the new ones from Kyle Morgan, Black Sea Dahu and Emily Rose & The Rounders. Others I’ve haven’t had the time to listen a whole lot yet, but there’s also most likely excellent albums from Swamp Dogg, Mark Edgar Stuart, Dark Tea, Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters, Superchunk, Spencer Hoffman (EP), String Machine, Lena Minder, The Band of Heathens, Basia Bulat, The HawtThorns, Duquette Johnston and King Hannah. I’m sure there was even more.

A big Finnish release week too led by the new wonderful Amuri album. Other full-length beauties came from Pintandwefall, Knipi, Palor, Kanerva plus there was a lovely EP from Janeveera. A new 22-Pistepirkko song is always something worth celebrating. That’s the obvious Finnish single of the week, but there’s also fabulous new ones from Antti Autio and A.Reikko.

Then on the international side of things, we have a new Twain song that hits pretty hard. Other personal favorites came from Erisy Watt, Erin Enderlin, Izaak Opatz, Joe Purdy, The Burning Hell, Jacob Miller, Christian Lee Hutson, Ryan Necci and the Buffalo Gospel and I’m Kingfisher. Again just to name a few.

That’s it for this week. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. Oh and I’ve made some of the older episodes playable, if you prefer that method instead of that insanely long archive playlist. You’ll find them from my Spotify profile. So if you miss an episode or want to return to one, that is a new option. These are only on Spotify for now. The new music weekly is still on Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music. I maybe drop Apple Music in early March, because it doesn’t make much sense to pay for three services and I don’t have much of a following on Apple. So long term probably Tidal and Spotify, but we’ll see. Peace and love.

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.
