OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #266

Sorry for the delay. Busy weekend, but here’s a quick new music weekly just before Super Bowl kick off. I ended the Qobuz experiment for now, so this is not there anymore. I really liked the app and might eventually return. I think it would be my go-to platform, if I quit making this playlist and only cared about my own listening, but right now it makes more sense to stay where the listeners are.

Maybe a bit slower release week, but there’s a few special ones for sure. Ivan Macleod made the album of the week. Other great album releases came from Itasca, Brittany Howard, Ducks Ltd, Madi Diaz and Tyler Ramsey.

The big one from Finland is the new Antti Autio album. Also very much in love with the new Viitasen Piia single. Other Finnish gems are singles from Reetta Hotti, Samoaja, AURAL, Saa Kiljua ja Sami Yaffa.

International singles were gold this week. Desiree Cannon, Mac Cornish and Georgia Parker can share the single of the week honors. Love them all. Other early faves came from Scott Ballew, Zachary Lucky, The Lemon Twigs, Jon McKiel, Billy Allen + The Pollies, Jeremy Ferrara and William Alexander. Again just to name a few.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. Next up Super Bowl. love love love.

A few Bandcamp cuts for the lovely non-streamers:

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 other platforms. This means a few tracks might be missing from the from the other platforms, if they are not available there. Oh and 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.
