OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #216

Another week, another new music weekly.

New Margo Price is the big one this week, but there’s other great ones too. We have new albums from Juni Habel, Belle & Sebastian, Gabi Hartmann, Juniper, The Genuine Fakes (EP) Marlody, Whitehorse, Brooks and Bowskill, Angela Perley, The Reds, Pinks and Purples (EP) and Billy Nomates. There’s a new Pacific Walker too that maybe doesn’t work on a playlist and therefore didn’t include it here. But I recommend checking it out Bandcamp.

The big album release from Finland is the new one from Tuomo & Markus. I’m also very fond of the new Laura Moisio single. The other Finnish cuts this week are singles from Radio Supernova, Kissa, Valtteri Laurell Nonet and Hullu Pappila. That solo double single from Juuso Härmä is from December 2022. Somehow I missed that before. Also revisiting last week’s Heartjet single.

Favorite international single is the latest Slaid Cleaves song. That one cuts deep. Great songwriting. Other faves came from I’m Kingfisher, Doug Paisley, Tim Hill, Blue Ranger and Sunny War. Again just to name a few.

That’s all for this week. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. Back to NFL playoffs. 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.
