OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #283

Another quick delayed new music weekly. Just got back home late Sunday evening from a small vacation trip to Mariehamn. I’m sure there’s stuff missing from this, but here we go anyway.

There’s new albums from Strand of Oaks, Jesse Daniel, Bonny Light Horseman, Marina Allen, M G Boulter, Margaux, Pat Hull, Little Wings, Jason McNiff, Gill Landry, Nick Dittmeier (EP), Joana Serrat, Fantastic Cat, Pedro the Lion, Good Looks, Rose Hotel, Razor Braids and Kayla Ray.

The big one from Finland is the wonderful debut album by Ystävät. Then there’s also great albums from Folkjykä & Kuntoutujat, Vellamo and Mara Balls plus singles from Hattara, Pekka Laine, The Orphan, Messier, Rosettes, Arppa, Bizzarro & Jere Ijäs, Lempi Elo and Jukka Takalo.

A whole lot of awesome international singles too. I haven’t spend a lot time with them yet, but some early faves came from Erin Rae, VanWyck, Quivers, Laughing, The While and The Broken Spokes. Again just to name a few.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. Back next week. Love and everything.

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.
