OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #250

Another milestone! 250 weeks done. Who knows how many to go. Thanks for listening and/or reading.

An all-time favorite Teenage Fanclub has new album out and available, so that’s got to be the album of the week for sure. There’s plenty of other great things too. This week we have new albums from Lydia Loveless, Jeff Moller, Caleb Stine, Charles Wesley Godwin, Katsy Pline,Colored Lights, Steve Sloane (now streaming), Dan Edmonds, Brent Cobb, Little Mazarn (EP), Josh Travis, Sally Anne Morgan, Rachel Kilgour, Karen & The Sorrows (EP), The Mellows, Jeffrey Alexander and the Heavy Lidders, Roger Joseph Manning Jr, Cinema Hearts (EP), Al Menne, Jenny Owen Youngs, Slaughter Beach, Dog and Rebecca Lee Daniels (EP).

Finnish treasure of the week is the new Hulda Huima album. In fact, one of my favorite Finnish albums of the year altogether. A couple of other great album releases too from Juppe and Babel. Plus singles from Sepänkadun Köyhät ja Nöyryytetyt, Ville Miettinen, Brian & Helvetin Peruna and Lau Nau.

And finally the international songs of the week. There’s a whole lot of them on the second half of the playlist. The album releases took all the space on the first half, but there’s plenty here that I love so much. Kelly Sloan’s fabulous I Wanna Wake Up is maybe the song of the week even though I’ve heard it before. So looking forward to her record. A new one from big personal fave Andrew Bryant is always a big deal. Some other early faves came from Jason Hawk Harris, Vincent Neil Emerson, The David Tattersall Group, Jess Parker, Maya De Vitry, Tre Burt and Abby Hamilton. Again just to name a few.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters, if you want another 250 episodes of this new music project. Ok, I won’t promises that much no matter what haha. Back next week with another one. Until then. Love, empathy and compassion.

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.
