OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #198

Another week, another new music weekly.

A big week on the rootsier side of things. Kelsey Waldon, Mariel Buckley, Vandoliers and Cahalen Morrison albums all seem to be excellent and I look forward to giving them more spins during the coming week. Also falling badly in love with that enchantingly beautiful Fonteyn album. Other album release treasures this week came from Lauren Balthrop, Tony Molina, Tim Barry, Thorsten Nesch (EP), Courtney Patton (well not sure if it’s EP or just a two singles, good stuff anyways), Amythyst Kiah (covers EP), Joe Purdy (another volume of outtakes).

The Finnish section has a wonderful run of singles from SaintPolis, Itä-Hollola Installaatio, Iisa and Hannibal & Hot Heros.

And finally the international singles. New Caleb Caudle single has probably been the early favorite. Many other gems too and I’ve been really loving the new ones from Drew Beskin & The Sunshine, Kyle Cox, Mightmare, Freya Josephine Hollick, The Orchids, Mr. Sam & The People People, Garrett T. Capps, Early James feat Sierra Ferrell and Lilly Winwood. Again just to name few. Often something that I don’t end up mentioning on this text part becomes one of the biggest favorites when I listen this more during the week.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. My vacation from the day job is done, which this time might be a good thing for the blog. Usually I’ve done a whole lot of catching up with the blog stuff during the day job vacation, but this time I was lazy and needed a break from everything. So I’ve mostly neglected everything for the last couple of weeks and try to bounce back now. At least I try to be better with the communicating part. We’ll see how that goes. 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.
