OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #205

Another week, another new music weekly.

The big one this week is the new Tyler Childers album. I didn’t start with it though, because I rather highlight some lesser known gems in the beginning of the playlist. I’ve been digging the new Shawn Hess album, so that’s my album of the week. John Fullbright also made a great return and I’ve been listening to that one quite a lot. On the other end of the onechord.net musical spectrum we have some gorgeous albums from Office Culture, Eli Pearl, Bill (EP) and Lee Baggett. I’m not sure is this genre-hopping a good thing, but that’s how it will always go here because I can’t paint myself into just one corner. Oh yeah and that 2nd Grade album is a mighty good one, if you want some great power pop. That’s not even all and the week also gave us new albums from Freya Josephine Hollick, Have Gun, Will Travel (EP), Shannen Moser, The Uplifting Bell Ends, Julia, Julia, The Barbaras, Mary Bragg, Matthew Check and Lambchop. There’s also Kayla Mahomed (EP) from the week before.

The Finnish highlight of the week is the new Treemer mini-LP. Other early favorites are the new singles from Litku Klemetti and Joose Keskitalo. This week we also got an EP from Tumma Paahto, album from Hiekka and singles from Ocelot, Raivo Jackson (TVZ cover), Särkyneet and Ville Miettinen. Oh yeah and at the end there’s also another song from the Knife Girl LP from the past week.

The international single of the week got the be the new Ron Sexsmith single. Also love that Erin Rae single. An outtake from the sessions of her 2022 album. Still one of my own favorites of the year. Rich Man is a strong song too and by no means just a throwaway that didn’t make the album cut. Oh yeah Melissa Carper and Tommy Alexander released more gold from their forthcoming albums. Love those songs a lot. Oh yeah and Pony Bradshaw, Dawn Riding, Caitlin Rose and M.Lockwood Porter songs are of course wonderful. Some pop gems too from the likes of Quivers, Dazy, Daniel Wylie, Martha and Ian M Bailey (this last one is a month old, but I missed it at the time). Shabason & Krgovich track is another early fave, but as usual I could namedrop all of the songs in this text.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. Love from a distance.

Apple Music Playlist

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.
