OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #237

Another quite busy week with GA-20 concert on Saturday and an extra work shift on Sunday. So I didn’t have a whole lot time to listen new music and definitely missed a lot good stuff. But here’s a quick Sunday roundabout of what I managed to find.

Album of the week is the new J.E. Sunde. I’m a long time fan and this new album again seems to be wonderful. This was a mighty good country/americana week too and there’s like a dozen albums that I’m eager to listen properly during the coming week. There’s new albums from Summer Dean, Brennen Leigh, Annie Bartholomew, Casey Prestwood, Son Volt, Ags Connolly, Possessed By Paul James, Austin Stambaugh, The Teskey Brothers, Fust, Maya Elise & The Good Dream, Diamond Grinder, Deer Tick, Maya Elise & The Good Dream, SunYears, Bonny Doon, U.S.Highball, Pretty Matty, Tough Age, The Reds, Pinks and Purples (EP), Pickle Darling, Spider Bite and Danny Paul Grody. And yeah, these were definitely not all country. Some great pop stuff there too etc.

A less crowded Finnish release week, but we have some gems for sure. There’s a new album from Keidas and singles from Maria Milvus, Janeveera, Bobby Oroza, Pekko Käppi, Honey Crisp and Vasas flora och fauna.

And from the international single side of things we have wonderful new ones from Lauren O’Connell, Brigid Mae Power, Tre Burt, Matt Harlan, Kevin Carducci, Lydia Loveless, John P. Strohm, Adeem the Artist, Kyle Cox. Just to name a few. Oh and new one from Sparklehorse archives. Full album on the way.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. Next weekend is midsummer aka Juhannus. I’m not sure if I’m going to make this or not. Maybe 51% chance that there will be one, but we’ll see. No promises at this point. Love and empathy.

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.
