OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #238

Back here again. This one tries again to cover the new music of the past two weeks, because I missed last weekend due to midsummer & extra Sunday work shift. I know I missed a ton, but here are the ones that didn’t flew under my radar.

The album of the week(s) is the new Lucinda Williams album. Only singles seem to be streaming at least at the moment. I bought the vinyl yesterday. Joanna Sternberg was another big album release. Mark Tegio is a new one for me, but love his EP on quick listen. The past two weeks also gave us great albums from Graves, Johanna Samuels, Brigid Mae Power, Tommy Prine, Richard Tripps, The Pink Stones, Nathan Seeckts, Fleur Wiber, Theo Lawrence (EP), Caitlin Canty, Malcolm Holcombe, Dylan Rodrigue, High Water Marks, Leo Walrus, Special Friend, Desert Mambas (EP), Nat Myers, Phi-Psonics, James & The Giants, Hayden Pedigo, M.Ward and Thorsten Nesch (EP).

Somewhat quiet on the Finnish side of things, but there’s some excellent singles from Sami Heikkilä, Janne Tapion Sisäinen Avaruus, Helmi Ada, Kari Tapiiri and Tams. Bonus points to Sami Heikkilä for mentioning my hometown Keuruu on his gorgeous double single.

The song of the week(s) is the new Hurry single. Love that band and it’s again such a pop gem. There’s actually plenty of other pop treasures both before and after the Hurry single on the playlist. So check at least those, if you can’t stand the americana heavy parts of this. Other single favorites came from Margo Cilker, Matt Paxton & The Pintos, Diners, Brower, Jerry David DeCicca, Mark Fredson, Humbird, Leah Senior and so forth. Again just to name a few.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. Most likely back next week. Hard to say for sure during these summer weeks. Love love love.

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.
