OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #184

Another week, another new music weekly.

The other kind of blog activity is still non-existent but here’s the new releases once again.

Brennen Leigh and Katie Spencer can share the album of the week title, because I love both of these beautiful releases. Katie’s album is not on Tidal, so check that out on Spotify (or better yet at Bandcamp / record store). This week we also got marvellous new releases from Leyla McCalla, Jim Bryson, Jacksonport (if you listen this regularly you’ve heard all songs, because he first released a new song from the album like every two weeks or so. A good way to get most exposure at least on this not-that-relevant little playlist), Stanhope, Belle & Sebastian, Ryan Necci & The Buffalo Gospel (EP), Sadurn, Tommy and the Ohs (one that I missed before), Phillip Jon Taylor, Luke Winslow-King, Greta Morgan (instrumental EP), Benjamin Adair Murphy (EP), Hater and Sharon Van Etten.

A new A.Reikko album leads the Finnish section. You may know him from Koria Kitten Riot and Johnny Superhero. This solo stuff in Finnish is equally brilliant. Faarao Pirttikangas & Nubialaiset also released an album. Other Finnish cuts are singles from Mara Balls, Ylva Haru, Eerika ja Sakari, Aino & Miihkali, Nina Kaitaranta, Lake Huttula and Bobby Oroza. There was probably more. Again a lot of the Finnish stuff is missing from Tidal version. I don’t know is Tidal having royalty payment issues or what is the reason, but seems like Spotify is far better for Finnish music.

The international single of the week has to be the new Ian Daniel Kehoe. He always keep me pushing me and forcing me to expand my listening habits. Highly recommended Colin Medley’s gorgeous music video for the song too. Some sensual folding for you there. Check it out on youtube. Other big faves this week came from Clara Mann, Joan Shelley, S.G. Goodman, Reverend Baron, Michael Rault, The Burning Hell, Nathan Kalish, I Was a King, The Boys With Perpetual Nervousness, Bob Sumner, Kelsey Waldon, Scott Ballew and Field Guides. Just to name a few. Quite often one of the tracks on the very end of the playlist later during the week when I’ve had more time to listen these.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. I appreciate all of it and it gives a reason to keep doing this. Current goal is to hit that 200 episodes mark and then reconsider the sanity of this project. I did pay the domain and web hosting bill for another year, so at least on some level things will continue for another year. 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.
