OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #179

Another week, another new music weekly.

I had a dreadful headache this morning and therefore I didn’t have as much time / energy to work on this as usual. I kinda wanted to leave this for tomorrow, but forced myself to finish it tonight. Sorry for all the typos and stuff I missed. I try do a better job next week.

Isaac Vallentin and Erisy Watt can share the album of the week honor. Very fond of these albums after just a few spins. Extremely highly recommended albums. A long time favorite Christian Lee Hutson fulfills this week’s big three. That’s not all though and there’s beautiful new albums from Vaden Landers, Kayla Von Der Heide, Elliah Heifetz, The Dead Tongues, The Hellacopters, Molly Tuttle & The Golden Highway, Paul Cauthen, Papercuts, Kathleen Edwards (EP), Blue Wilson, nudista (EP), Jenna & The Janes, Karima Walker (album of demos), Jeremie Albino (EP), The Wave Pictures (EP), Clea Anais, Sure Fire Soul Ensemble and Jenna Rae.

The Finnish section has albums from Muuan Mies and J. Karjalainen plus a run of singles from SaintPolis, Maustetytöt X Agents and Antero Kaksikäsi. I’m sure there had to be more.

My favorite international singles are the new ones from Willi Carlisle and Simon Joyner. Some first class songwriting there for sure. Other big faves came from the ones like John Calvin Abney, Izaak Opatz, Devil’s Coattails, Nathan Kalish, John Craigie, Dungeon of Skeletons, Icarus Phoenix and Angel Olsen. Again just to name a few.

That’s all for now. Too tired to write more tonight. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. To know that someone reads and/or listens gives a reason to continue. Now I need some sleep. Back next week. 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

I’ll make the playlist on Spotify and then transfer it to Tidal. This means a few tracks might be missing from the Tidal version, if they are not available on that platform. Usually it’s 1-3 tracks that are not on Tidal. There’s a bunch of older episodes on my Spotify profile, if you miss an episode or want to revisit.

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 if someone wants to follow it, they can just follow that one list and will get a new set of songs each weekend.
