OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #194

Another week, another new music weekly.

Slightly delayed again. This time because I spent the weekend at a rainy outdoor indie music festival. This was quite a heavy release weekend and there was not a chance my tired mind could cover everything on one sunday. So additions might appear during the coming weeks.

The album of the week is the new Willi Carlisle album. I’ve loved all advance singles and this whole album is equally amazing. One of the early AOTY candidates. There’s plenty of other treasures too. We have new albums from The Local Honeys, Arlo McKinley, Ac Sapphire, Hutchie, Lawn, The Gabbard Brothers, Alex Dupree, Thorsten Nesch (EP), Wharfer, The Great Park, Lera Lynn, The A’s, Tami Neilson, Nick Dittmeier & The Sawdusters, Joe Purdy (more outtakes), Greta Morgan (EP) and Parker Twomey.

The Finnish section has a great run of singles from Tuomo & Markus, Tender Lakes, Mikael H and Pambikallio. I’m sure there had to be more.

And then there’s a giant amount of wonderful international singles. There’s new greatness from Daniel Romano, Sloan, Nikki Lane, Caleb Caudle, Rhett Miller, Mightmare (new project from Sarah Shook), Hallelujah the Hills, Courtney Marie Andrews, Greta Morgan, Charley Crockett, Wilder Maker… just to name a few. You’ll find them all below.

That all for this week. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. Back next weekend with another episode. At least six more to go. Might go until Sunday again, if I end up spending a lot of time at Ilmiö festival. Live music beats streaming every time. 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.
