OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #177

Another week, another new music weekly.

Let’s start with the Finnish ones this time around, because there’s a wonderful new Sur-rur album out and available. It’s a 75 minute monster. Maybe that’s a tad too much, but hard to complain because especially on the first half all songs are pretty much 5/5. Love it. The new singles from Puhelinseksi and Jani Matti Juhani are also big favorites. Other great Finnish releases this week are albums from Lone Deer Laredo and J.A. Mäki plus singles from Muuan Mies, Nina Kaitaranta, Emilia Elele and KATI.

Jerry Leger and Jacob Miller can share the international album of the week title. I listened both albums a couple of times last night and really enjoyed them. This week also got beautiful albums from Fortunato Durutti Marinetti, M Ross Perkins, Jesper Lindell, Hailey Whitters, Ben Chapman (this one’s a few weeks old, thanks to Farce for the intro), Ray Wylie Hubbard, Steve Dawson, Andy Bilinski and Midlake. Oh yeah and Sonic Youth too. Didn’t include it on the playlist though, because it was mostly ten minute songs and this was already too long. You don’t need my blog to know and love Sonic Youth.

The international song of the week is the new MJ Lenderman single. Ok, this was already one of my favorite songs of 2021, but he made a new version for the forthcoming album and I still love this song madly. Other big favorites of the week came from Johanna Samuels, David James Allen, Sylvia Rose Novak, Carla Geneve, John Craigie, Chris Brain, Vincent Neil Emerson, The Deep Dark Woods, Li’l Andy, John Craigie, Fernando Viciconte, Ryan Necci and the Buffalo Gospel, Kaitlin Butts and Abigail Lapell. Again just to name a few. And yeah a few of those are covers, but great versions.

That’s all for this week. Back to following NHL insiders and hitting F5 on Hfboards trade forum. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. All that may seem pointless, but it matters. Without all that I have no way of knowing, if anybody cares or am I just wasting all these hours to make a playlist for myself. 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.
