OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #207

Another week, another new music weekly.

Still very much under the weather, so I’ll keep this short. Not sure is this the same flu or did I caught something else, but I don’t feel good at all.

Album of the week is the new one from Julianna Riolino. It could be the Sylvie album too, but it’s mostly an expanded edition of the 2021 EP. And that was one of my favorite things last year and therefore I already knew the songs by heart. A big release week otherwise too and we got new greatness from Mightmare (Sarah Shook’s other band), Plains, Bill Callahan, Jeremy Squires, M. Lockwoord Porter, Field Medic, Harmony Index (EP), Eliza Edens, Terra Spencer & Ben Caplan, Alela Diane, Stephen Becker, Julian Taylor, Miko Marks, Nicholas Mudd (EP), Logan Farmer, A.O. Gerber, The Lowest Pair & Small Town Therapy, Edith Judith, The Reds, Pinks and Purples, Wild Pink, Matthew J. Rolin, Ben Varian (EP), BATTS, Skullcrusher, Witch’s Wall (EP), Rachael Dadd and Cory Branan.

Finnish hit of the week is the new Hexehexe album. That works as a Halloween soundtrack too, if you celebrate such a thing. We also got a great run of singles from Eden Prairie, Astrid Swan, Joose Keskitalo, Folkjykä & Kuntoutujat, Markus Perttula & Aini, Jere Ijäs & Monacon Työväen Palloilijat and Pastis. Oh and also included the other side of that Heta Narkaus double single I featured last week too.

The international single of the week is the new Bart single. Again a slice of melodic pop heaven from them. Some other early favorites came from Tommy Alexander, David Miner, Wild Earp, Joan Kelsey, Moriah Bailey and Model Shop. Again just to name a few.

That’s it for this week. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. Sorry if I messed up or forgot something. My brain is full of fog. Now I’ll crawl into some corner and try to heal myself. Hopefully I feel a bit better next week. 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.
