OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #213

Another week, another new music weekly.

Quite a lot of good stuff out there. I was basicly ready to post my EPs of the year list on Friday, but then there was something like 4-5 great new ones available that probably should make the cut. So I put that one the backburner and did this new music weekly first. How do you beautiful people I think I ever get the lists done, if I have to spend 10 hours just listening to new music every Saturday. I think I’ll do one more of these next weekend and then I’m done. For the year, not for good. Before next weekend hopefully the EPs of the year and Finnish albums of the year lists.

Album of the week is the new one from Adeem the Artist. A very powerful album with excellent songwriting. Like mentioned above the EP ruled the game this week. There’s the split between The Lostines & Nick Shoulders plus new ones from Michael James Tapcott, Layten Kramer and Johanna Samuels. Not forgetting J.E. Sunde & Dory Bavarsky collaboration and the December volume from Thorsten Nesch’s montly EP series. This week we also got new releases from Bird Calls, Julia Sanders, Moriah Bailey, Tiny Vipers (EP) Ty Maxon, Fell Runner, Shirley Hurt, Brendan Benson, Deepest Bison (this already was out a while back with a different cover art. I know because I featured it), Burn the Louvre, William William Rogers (EP) and Luke De-Sciscio (seems like only the single is streaming, but there’s a full album on Bandcamp). Small Opera’s EP is from September, but I just found it last week and liked it a lot.

The Finnish highlight is the first single from the next Liila Jokelin album. Can’t wait to hear full album in 2023. Also great to have Captain Cougar back. Other Finnish gems of the week are album froms The Handkerchiefs and Oskarin Gramofoni and singles from MeriTuuli, SaintPolis, Salla Karonen, Emmy June, Sam Shingler and Fernet Underground. Well Oskari and Fernet was from a week ago.

International single of the week is the latest one from long time faves BMX Bandits. Other personal faves came from I’m Kingfisher, H.C. McEntire, Brooks and Bowskill and Ryan Necci & The Buffalo Gospel (well a new version of an old song, but yeah always loved this one).

That’s all for this week. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. Hopefully some year end action during the coming week. No definite promises, because well this is a spare time hobby not a job. But they are coming. 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.
