OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #190

Another week, another new music weekly.

A bit behind schedule this week, because I was away for most of the week. But here’s the Sunday edition of the new music weekly.

The imaginary album of the week award goes to Australia this time around, because Rob Snarski has a beautiful new album out and available. This week we also got great releases from Anne Malin, Carter Felker, Stacy Antonel, Pharis & Jason Romero, Daniel Sherrill, IV and the Strange Band, Black Guy Fawkes, The Damn Quails, Fresh Pepper, Lucy Roleff & Lehmann B. Smith, Haroula Rose, Matt Moran (a few weeks old), Sydney Adams (EP), Bartees Strange, Ken Yates (a few weeks old), Revelators Sound System, Townsel Turner and Dylan Moon.

My favorite Finnish releases of the week are the new singles from PK Keränen & Leija Lautamaja and Folkjykä & Kuntoutujat. Other Finnish gems this week are albums from Kuusamo (well actually released a week ago, but I missed it back then) and steve plus singles from Mountaines, Lyyti and Tuomo Mannonen.

The international single of the week is the lovely collaboration single from Skyway Man, Andy Jenkins & Molly Sarle. Willi Carlisle also hits another homerun plus I’m also fond of the singles by Austin Leonard Jones and Drugdealer. Not to forget new M. Lockwood Porter, Thee Sacred Souls, Young Gun Silver Fox, Marina Allen, Scott Ballew and so forth. You’ll find them all from the list below.

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.
