OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #241

Another very quick summer edition of the new music weekly. Live music took over my weekend. I finally got to see Kristiina live and loved the concert. Plenty of other great concerts too. But here’s a quick round up of new music I managed to hear. Well at least partly. I haven’t listened any full albums yet.

This week gave us new albums from Kitba, Allegra Krieger, Cut Worms, Sleepy Jean, Molly Tuttle & The Golden Highway, Blur, Guy Capecelatro III (well new for streaming, not new otherwise), Molly Brandt, Bailey Allen Baker, Lori McKenna and Tyler Lyle (been on Bandcamp for a few weeks already).

From Finland, there’s a new album Jenna-Marie Laine plus singles from Aava, Lettoman and Vasas Flora och Fauna. Oh and a bit older 2023 album from Monsuuni, but it hasn’t been here before.

International song of the week is the new MJ Lenderman single. Other early faves came from Hurry and Lady Apple Tree.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. Vacation and summer mode continues. I think I’ll make this next weekend, but might be again a bit delayed and quick edition. Bear with me for a weeks. I’m sure I’ll eventually get back to normal routine (unless I just give up before that happens). 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.
