OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #186

Another week, another new music weekly.

Sorry for another delay. Maybe I should just go fully back to Sunday update, because I don’t seem to be able to finish it on Saturday. Too much new music to digest so fast.

The album of the week is the debut one from Thomas Dollbaum. A good kind of gut-punch there. That’s far from and this week gave us excellent new ones from Sylvia Rose Novak, Shoulder Season (EP), Jo Schornikow, Craig Finn, The Wave Pictures, Mavis Staples & Levon Helm, Cristina Vane, Jess Jocoy, Alex Izenberg, Tejon Street Corner Thieves, Will Fox, Courtney Jaye, Nick Piunti & The Complicated Men, John Statz (acoustic one that has only been on Bandcamp before this), Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (Dylan covers), Banditos, John Doe, Jose Medeles, Grant-Lee Phillips and Noah Vonne.

New Penniless song is always something to love and cherish. That’s the biggest treasure from Finland this week. Not an only one though. We got an album from Dinosaurusten pelastajat, EP from Karina and singles from Mountaines, Henna Emilia Hietamäki and Emmy June (this last one is a few weeks old).

The international song of the week is the new Willi Carlisle tune. I love everything I’ve heard from his forthcoming album so far. It’s going to be such a great one. Other big faves came from Friendship, JPW (this one’s a week or two old, but thankfully I found it from the magical Petal Motel. Before reading that piece, I didn’t actually know that Jason P. Woodbury was also a musician. I only knew him as a music writer who has a wonderful taste), John Moreland, Jenny O, Devil’s Coattails and Lindsay Clark. Again just to name a few. You’ll find them all below.

That’s all for this week. 186 done, at least 14 to go. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. 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.
