OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #243

Another very quick summer edition of the new music weekly. After this it’s (unfortunately for me) back to normal routine, because the vacation is over and day job waits. I’m sure there’s a lot missing, because live music took my time again.

Beth Bombara and William Matheny can share the album of the week title. We also got new albums from Mikaela Davis, Fanny Lumsden, Joshua Ray Walker (covers), Chris Farren, Florry, Thorsten Nesch (EP), Crossed Wires (EP), Josienne Clarke (acoustic EP).

From Finland there’s albums from Kuningas Yrjö and Lettoman plus singles from Modem, Amuri, Kari Tapiiri and Tanssiva Karhu.

Some early favorite international singles came from Amber Rae Slade, Will Johnson, Charles Wesley Godwin, Vanity Mirror, Hurry, Maybel, Carla Geneve and Diners. Just to name a few. I’ve barely listened what I included this time around, so I’ll need to listen this thoroughly myself too.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. Hopefully better job (well hobby) next week, because I will have more time to listen to new music. Unless I find myself on some festival again. Who knows. But yeah, business as usual at least until 250 episodes. 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.
