OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #255

Busy weekend, but here’s a quick new music weekly before Sunday’s Helsinki visit to see Dylan LeBlanc. This was actually a pretty damn good release week.

Not a whole lot of listening yet, but let’s give the album of the week to the new Willy Tea Taylor & The Fellership record. Loved that on first listen. There’s quite a lot of diffent kind of things I love this week. Sean Burns has a great classic country record while Thomas Walsh has an awesome pop album. The American Analog Set returned and Steven van Betten’s album is just super sweet (although the song I have on the playlist hits really hard. My apologies for that). Maybel, Carla Geneve and Jerry Leger always big faves too and the list goes on an on. We also have new albums from Duff Thompson, Tommy and the Ohs, Desolation Horse, Golden Apples, The Mountain Goats, Monster Furniture, Jon Danforth, Jessi Colter, Nora Jane Struthers, Caitlin Kraus, Norma MacDonald, Flatland Cavalry, Black Pumas, The Gaslight Anthem and Micah Thunder.

A lot of good Finnish stuff. I think my early faves here are the double singles from Kielo Kärkkäinen and new band called Leipä (some usual suspects in the line-up though). Other finnish treasures are albums from Suudelmat, Favourite Colours and Tuomari Nurmio & FOLX, EP from Kaikki turhat haaveet and singles from Nuoruus, Säteri Super and Pekka Nisu. Oh and included A.Takalo’s couple of weeks old album, because I missed it at the time. Sounded real good on quick listen, so I will put that on rotation during the coming week.

The international song of the week is the new one from long time favorite Adam Remnant. Other early faves came from Adeem the Artist, John Craigie, Advance Base, BenBen, Bory, The Reds, Pinks and Purples, Liquid Mike and Frog. Again just to name a few.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. See you tomorrow in Helsinki and here again next weekend. One of the best albums I’ve heard this year comes out then. That’s Jeffrey Martin. Until then. Love and empathy.

Playlist Archive on Tidal

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.
