OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #236

A very quick vacation ending new music weekly. I’m sure there’s a whole lot missing, because I tried to cover two weeks in one day.

The last two weeks gave us new albums from Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Austin Lucas, Laith, Anna St. Louis, Jack Symes, David James Allen, Laura Cantrell, Michelle Billingsley, Elliot C Way, Sam Blasucci, Go By Ocean, Comet Gain, Roseanne Reid, Erin Enderlin, Jeremie Albino, Possum (EP), Thorsten Nesch (EP), Cooper Wolken, Starpainter, This is the Kit, Jess Williamson, Jenny Lewis, Ben Folds, Why Dogs Why (EP), and Stoner Control (EP).

From Finland there’s EPs from Hullu Pappila, Kami Mate and Nina Kaitaranta and an album from Kärmes. Plus singles from Litku Klemetti, Tender Lakes, M, Tanssiva Karhu, Krypta, KATI, Rock Siltanen Group, Grant Wood Company, Heidi Elmgren and Ruissalo Amping. And still keeping Markus Krunegård among the Finnish ones as well.

And a whole lot of singles too. I haven’t done a whole lot listening yet, but some early faves came from Jacksonport, Melody Walker & Mercy Bell, Joey O’Neil, Beth Bombara, William Matheny, Dakota Theim, Weird Nightmare and so forth.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. Back next week most likely (unless I go to a festival or something). Hopefully with a more thorough effort too. Summer might be bit on an off type of thing, but I try to do this on most weekends. I’ll tell you on instagram and/or twitter, if/when I miss a week.

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.
