OCTA New Music Weekly – Episode #286

Another busy weekend, but here’s finally a new music weekly. Trying to cover the past two weeks with this one and I’m pretty sure I missed a whole lot of good stuff.

New Gabriel Birnbaum is the album of the week(s). There’s also great new albums from Laughing, Bacchae, Joe Wunderle, Charlie Overman, Zach Bryan, Alice Wallace, Kaitlin Butts, Silverada, The Golden Roses, Aaron Frazer, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Felice Brothers, Rose Gerber (EP), Duff Thompson, Wilco (EP), Richard Tripps, Alluvial Nuggets, Redd Kross, Nighttime, and Queen of Jeans.

Only a few Finnish things on this monster playlist, but I love them all dearly. My big favorite ITE EEROLA has a new double single and that is always a big deal. The singles from Haamusoittajat and Nikita Titov also hit the core of my heart. Then there’s also single gold from Juha Mäki-Patola and new Timmion artist Bronze, Silver and Brass.

There’s a huge amount of gorgeous international singles. Some early favorites came from Erin Durant, Drew Beskin, Jennifer Castle, Erisy Watt, Melissa Carper, MJ Lenderman, Caleb Stine, Adam Remnant, Chris Emmert & Austin Stambaugh, Bob Sumner, I Was a King, Icarus Phoenix, Sinai Vessel and so many others.

That’s all for now. Like, share, follow and all the usual promotional nonsense. It all matters. Back again next week. Hopefully. There probably will be 1-2 missed weekends during this summertime. I’ll let you know on the social platforms, if and when I skip a week. 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.
