OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #270

A quick flu-ish edition of the new music weekly. I have close to zero brain activity in my foggy head, so there’s probably errors and stuff missing.

This week there’s albums from Joe Pug, Quinn Pilgrim (EP), AC Sapphire, Idanha, The Tyde, The Northern Belle, Misty Lanes, The Mellows, The Hanging Stars, Tomato Flower, Hanemoon, Eyelids (comp of rarities and such) and Alison Eales (EP).

Big Finnish release week led by long-waited albums from Ylva Haru and Tams. New Sami Yaffa album too and a couple of great EPs too from Teini-Pää and Juovat. And a whole lot gorgeous singles. Favorite there maybe the debut single from Sonja Selene. There’s also single gold from from Lala Salama, Plastic Tones, Klara LaFleur, Leija Lautamaja, Folkjykä & Kuntoutujat, Bobby Oroza, Vellamo and Inariveljet.

Plenty of international singles too. Some early favorites from Adeem the Artist, The Lostines, Jeffrey Lewis, Charley Crockett, Mac Cornish, Leyla McCalla, JD Clayton, Loose Collars, Eric Slick, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Good Looks, Theo Lawrence… Again just to nama a few.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. I’ll try to shake off the rest of this flu/cold now. Love love love.

Spotify Playlist

Tidal Playlist

YouTube Playlist

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.
