OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #210

Another week, another new music weekly.

First some news regarding Tidal. They finally introduced public profiles and therefore it will be easier to share stuff. A welcome addition. You’ll find my profile here, if you want to follow. Right now there’s only this new music weekly, but I will add more playlists there soon-ish.

Album of the week is the new wonderful Dawn Riding album. Ellen Froese album is another big one for me, because I’ve loved all the singles during the last year or two. Plenty of other gems too and there’s new albums from Joan Kelsey, Jonny Kosmo, Black Sea Dahu (EP), Jeb Loy Nichols, The War and Treaty (EP), Dominic Angelella, S.C.A.B., Breanna Barbara, Elizabeth Moen, Wesley, Andres Miguel Cervantes (well this is actually from March, but I missed it then. Shame on me, because I loved this on first spin. Found it now because it was on same label as Dawn Riding), Suzannah, Jack Schneider, Franz Nicolay, Katy Rea, Macie Stewart (expanded Euro edition of the album from last year, so this is revisit but a worthy one), Wax Atlantic, Jamie Stillway, A Vulture Wake (well merges the earlier two EPs into one LP), Larkin Poe, Joseph Decosimo and Frances Ford.

The Finnish section has a pretty good size this week and it’s led by the great debut album from Heta Narkaus. I have nothing but love for all the singles and now the equally beautiful album is here. I also want to highlight the very moving Anis Kiitu single and the first outtake from the next Salaliitto album. Other Finnish treasures are album from Tuomo Mannonen along with singles from Ilja Karsikas, Vellamo (missed this last week), Susanna Leppänen & Vallitseva tilanne, Lätsä, Suosikki, Radio Supernova and The Handkerchiefs.

The song of the week is the lovely new Steven Van Betten solo single. The new single from Gena Rose Bruce that features Bill Callahan is also fabulous. Other early favorites came from Pretty Matty, Jarrod Dickenson, Cassidy Snider & The Wranglers, Dad Weed, Bec Stevens, Field Guides, Shirley Hurt and Jen Cloher. Again just to name a few.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. A lot of great albums coming on the 18th (and probably later too) too so don’t lock and post your EOTY lists yet. I know there’s some in the way that will claim a spot on my list. 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.
