OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #188

Another week, another new music weekly.

188 done and maybe 12 to go. This was quite a big one and didn’t have time to listen everything on one weekend. Too much new music for one dude to cover on his spare time. But here’s still my take of the finest new music of the week.

Drive-By Truckers and S.G. Goodman albums are the big ones this week, but early on I’ve been equally into the Jack M. Senff album. All extremely highly recommended. This week also gave as great releases from Desolation Horse, Nicki Bluhm, Ryan Lee Crosby, Paige Hargrove, Angel Olsen, Chelsea Rose, Ural Thomas & The Pain, Extra Arms, Andrew Bird, Teenage Tom Petties, Brenna Lowrie (Neil Young cover EP), Mary Gauthier, Andrew Gabbard (live EP) M G Boulter (EP), H Self (EP) Queen Of Jeans (EP), Nataly Dawn, Matt York and Jack Klatt (EP). Oh and this one also includes a song from Jenny Berkel’s album that came out a couple weeks ago. I had the advance singles on this playlist, but managed to miss the actual album release a few weeks back.

The cover magic from Amuri is the Finnish highlight of the week. Love their version of Kestääkö siivet. Other Finnish gems of the week are album from Team Play, EP from Marian Valinta and singles from Pekka Tuomi, Ite Eerola, Kadotettu Nuoruus and Bobby Oroza.

New Anna Tivel song of is of course the international song of the week. One of my favorite songwriters on my favorite record label. I got nothing but love for that. A fabulous week otherwise too. There’s new ones from big personal favorites like Julie Arsenault & Max Garcia Conover, Joan Shelley, Abby Hamilton, John Calvin Abney, Mariel Buckley, Nikki Lane, Caleb Caudle, Wilder Maker, Rachel Brooke, Kyle Cox, Dakota Theim, Michael Rault and the list goes on and on. Check them all out below.

That all for this week. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. Especially important now when I seriously consider whether or not I will continue past the 200 mark. So if you want this to continue, hitting that like / follow button is an easy way to convince me that it might be worth it to keep this thing alive. Oh and happy STHLM Americana festival for all those who celebrate next weekend. I have to skip this year, but I hope I will be able to be there in 2023. 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.
