OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #191

Another week, another new music weekly.

A late midsummer edition of the new music weekly. I’m sure there’s a lot of stuff missing from this one. Apologies in advance.

A big release week this one with some parade-worthy album releases. I’m sure Dwight approves when I say that I absolutely love that Joan Shelley album. Such a special album. Damien Jurado and The Burning Hell round up my big three for the week, but there’s a whole lot more as well. This week gave us great albums from Field Guides, Young Guv, Reverend Baron, Lindsay Clark, Gregory Dwane (EP), The Barlow, Devil’s Coattails, Caleb Nichols, Mikey Erg, The Hellacopters (covers EP), Rob Joynes (EP), Martin Courtney, Kevin Galloway, Fountaindale and Jason McNiff (covers album).

The big one from Finland has been out for a while on Bandcamp, but few hours after last week’s episode I noticed that the Jukka Nousiainen & Kumpp album is now also on these evil streaming services. Absolutely love the album. The other Finnish album on the list is also a few weeks old, because I managed to miss the beautiful Samanna album in early June. Other Finnish cuts this week are gorgeous singles from Jani Matti Juhani and Samae Koskinen.

International single of the week is the new one from Julianna Riolino. I dig the Judee Sill homage in the cover too. Also wonderful to hear new stuff from Little Mazarn and see them on the Dear Life Records roster. That label has become one of my favorites in the world during the past year or two. Other favorites came from Tiffany Williams, Cactus Lee, Kelsey Waldon, Alela Diane and Eli Winter. Just to name a few again. You’ll find them all below.

That’s all for this week. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. I started making a small mid-year fave list, but we’ll see if I manage to finish it. 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.
