OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #228

A little bit delayed Easter edition of the new music weekly. So much new music this week and I didn’t have whole lot time to go through it all. So I’m sure there’s stuff missing. But here’s a quick weekly roundabout anyway.

We have new international albums from Bart, Nico Paulo, Hayden, Wednesday, Liquid Mike (this one’s a month old pop blast. Missed it at the time, but lately FranziaMom is making sure everyone is listening to it. Thankfully so, because this is great), Gregory Pepper and His Problems, The Hackles, Robbie Fulks, Charlie Hill, Angela Autumn (EP), Carter Sampson, Charlie & Margot, James Steinle, Dan Horne, Devon Church, Bobby Stevens, Jana Horn, Heather Woods Broderick, Emma Tricca, Matthew Logan Vasquez, North Americans, Murphnick and The Ferdy Mayne / Turner Porter. A whole lot to type, let alone listen.

From Finland the big one is the new Haamusoittajat EP. Forgot to mention last week that they have a wonderful new EP on Bandcamp. Now it’s on the streaming services too. Love the band. Other big Finnish fave is the new Kalevi Suopursu single. Then there’s also beautiful albums from Lempi Elo and Kadonnut Manner and singles from Thomas Ignatius, Knife Girl, Liila Jokelin and Metsäheikki.

So many albums this week that the singles are buried at the end of the playlist. There’s awesome new ones from Sam Burton, Jason Isbell, Summer Dean, Lolas, Mike Frazier, Possum, Katie Jo & Elijah Ocean, Withered Hand and many others. Just to name a few. Too early to tell which will become long time friends and which just lovely acquintances.

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.
