OCTA Music Weekly – Episode #99

Another week, another new music weekly.

I changed the title a little bit to in order to make it seem like this is more than just another silly Spotify playlist with zero relevance. Yeah, I do know that it really isn’t. Anyway, I just thought I try to be better at mentioning the releases that are not available on streaming platforms (for obvious reasons). So just trying to make a bit more thorough weekly new release round up, but I will definitely still miss a ton of great releases and the playlist is still the main thing. Next week this hits episode 100, which is sort of crazy. That was the goal I had in mind, but I don’t have immediately plans to stop and will continue as long as I enjoy making it and someone is actually listening.

This one was maybe a bit slower release week, but the quality more than made up for it. There’s a wonderful new album from Jenny O., posthumous album from one of the all-time greats Jason Molina and three new gorgeous Ian Daniel Kehoe albums over at Bandcamp. Oh and there’s also new The Microphones and new Will Johnson albums at Bandcamp too, which is a big deal. And many other beautiful things. Here’s a list of new albums and EPs that were on my radar.

Jenny O. – New Truth (Mama Bird Recording Co)
Gold Star Gold Star – Introducing..(Earth Libraries)
Smug Brothers – Flame Verbatim EP (Mel-Tones)
Jason Molina – Eight Gates (Secretly Canadian)
Sam Rae – Ten Thousand Years
Golden Shoals – Golden Shoals
Young Gun Silver Fox – Canyons (Karma Chief Records / Candelion) – US release this week
Casper Allen – Vol. 1 (Trillbilly Deluxe)
Daniel Donato – A Young Man’s Country (Cosmic Country Music)
Scott Hildebrand – Under Wraps EP
Billy Nomates – Billy Nomates (Invada Records)
Double Grave – Goodbye, Nowhere! (Forged Artifacts)
Isobel Campbell – Voices in the Sky EP (Cooking Vinyl)
Mary Chapin Carpenter – The Dirt and the Stars (Lambent Light Records)

-Plus a few new albums that are not on streaming platforms, but can be found from Bandcamp.

Ian Daniel Kehoe – Rock & Roll Illusion / Charging the Stone / Disco Body Buzz (Tin Angel Records)
Will Johnson – El Capitan (Keeled Scales)
The Microphones – Microphones in 2020 (P.W. Elverum & Sun)
Aaron Lee Tasjan – Found Songs Vol. 2 EP
Andrew Bryant – Ain’t It Like The Cosmos (Demos)

The Finnish section only has two songs this week. New singles from Janne Tapion Sisäinen Avaruus and Väisänen.

As for international singles there’s plenty to love. You can take a journey with Skyway Man or enjoy the first single from Bright Arcana (who gets some help from Anna Tivel). Jeremy Squires, BAJA and Kathleen Edwards continue to impress. Night Shop single has been a big favorite for me. It’s been out a while, but I only found it this week. As usual, everything else would be worth a namedrop on this text too, but you’ll find them below.

That’s it for this week. Sorry that everything else on this blog is pretty much on hold and sorry for being so horrible at answering emails. I’ve been struggling for about five months and just haven’t had the energy to do much more than this weekly round up. Maybe things get better one day, but I’m not 100% sure anymore. Love from a distance.

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

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 a) if someone wants to follow it, they can just follow that one list and will get a new set of songs each Sunday b) so that I don’t have a trillion of different playlists on my Spotify account.

OCTA Weekly Playlist – Episode #98

Another week, another weekly playlist.

Also another week when it feels kinda pointless to make a Spotify playlist. I hope one day this streaming thing makes sense for artists too, but it sure seems like they don’t even want to make that happen. Meanwhile let’s buy music and support the artists as much as possible. Of course the problem with this buy buy narrative is that a lot of folks are struggling just as badly as the artists. Buying a lot of music isn’t really an option, if you can barely scrape together enough for food and rent. So no need to feel ashamed, if all you are able to do is to subscribe to a legal streaming service. You are still just as important as the guy who had to move to a larger apartment, because he needed an extra room for his vinyl collection. But if you are able to do so, please do buy some music or merch. And for the love of all good. Someone fix the streaming payout model.

Some big releases this week again. New Le Ren EP and Charlie Whitten album were my most anticipated ones. Steve Sloane’s new double album Visions of Pain and Visions of Love would have also been there, but it came as a beautiful surprise. Only Pain seem to be on Spotify at the moment, but both are on Bandcamp. I think I’ll grab them on next Bandcamp day. There’s also beautiful new albums from Charley Crockett, Gillian Welch (lost songs compilation), Stephen Simmons, Alex Izenberg, Thanya Iyer, Madeline Kenney, Land of Talk and Immaterial Possession. Plus EPs from Mother Tongues, Drayton Farley and the aforementioned Le Ren.

The Finnish flavour of the week is the return single from Gim Kordon. Other Finnish cuts this week are the singles from Vino Puu, Juha Mäki-Patola and the EP from Eerika ja Sakari.

Plenty of international should-be hits too. There’s new beauties from the forthcoming albums by Luka Kuplowsky, Dolly Valentine, Trummors and Kath Bloom. There’s also first singles from the fortcoming albums by Bonnie Whitmore and Jerry David DeCicca. There’s a new song from the great Sam Moss and the new artist find of the week for me is Brock Mattsson who made a gorgeous country song. Oh yeah and that Benchmarks song is superb too. And well all others are worth of a namedrop too, but you’ll find them on the list below.

That’s it for this week. Love from a distance.

OCTA Weekly Playlist – Episode #97

Another week, another weekly playlist.

Back with another new music round up and this was again quite a week. There’s so much new music to love that it was tough to narrow this down to any reasonable length. But I suppose that’s not a huge concern. You can listen as much or as little you want.

The big one this week for me is the new Courtney Marie Andrews album. Love the Cinder Well album too and what about that Psalmships EP. Oh my. It takes my breath away. Twain’s album is one of my favorites of the year, but I haven’t seen it on Spotify before this week. Other big album releases came from Jess Cornelius, Taylor Swift, Shirley Collins, Lori McKenna, Arna Georgia (ok, this was a week ago but I missed it then), Liza Anne, Katie Dey and Gregory Uhlmann. Plus great EPs from Gladie, Devandra Banhart and the aforementioned Psalmships.

The Finnish section only has the new The Handkerchiefs single and revisits the new Matti Jasu album. I’m sure there had to be more. Oh and there actually is over at Bandcamp. Like the English debut of JonnaT that was produced by Ken Stringfellow. You’ll find it here.

As for international songs, there’s so much to love. One of my all-time favorite songwriters John K. Samson has a new song and one of my new favorites Heather Valley released the first single from her forthcoming album. Lydia Loveless announced a new album and released a fabulous new single. Then we got new outtakes from the forthcoming albums by Sylvie Simmons, Charlie Whitten, Gold Star Gold Star, Colter Wall, Arlo McKinley, H.C. McEntire… All great just like everything else on this long-ish playlist.

That’s it for this week. Thank you for reading and following my little music blog. It matters to me. See you next week or before if I get my act together and manage to write some blog posts. Love from a distance.

OCTA Weekly Playlist – Episode #96

Another week, another weekly playlist.

I spent the week vacationing on the countryside, so not a whole lot of blog action during the past week. Back in the city again and back to work on Monday.

Some big album releases this week. S.G. Goodman, Samantha Crain and Dogwood Tales were the big three for me and all are wonderful albums. Or you could make it a quartet by adding the new Tom Brosseau (although this has an official release date of 19th of August, but seems to be already available). The week also gave us excellent new albums from Lianne La Havas, Rob Dobson, Nicholas Mallis, David Ramirez, Drew Danburry (B-sides from forthcoming cassette-only album), Illuminati Hotties, The Chicks, The Texas Gentlemen, Sojourn Suspect, Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards and Ora Cogan . Oh and Joan Shelley’s beautiful live album is now on Spotify too. A couple of EPs too from Pearl Charles and Brooke Bentham.

The Finnish section is rather small, but quality is high. There’s the new Matti Jasu album and a new Helmi treasure from Metsäheikki. Then there’s also The Shouldas EP. They are a band from Lewisburg, PA led by Evan Dresser, but Finnish superhero Thomas Lilley (Daisy, Liljankukka) also plays a major part. The new EP was also recorded in Finland and came out on the wonderful Karhuvaltio Records.

Plenty of singles to love as well. One of my favourite Swedish artists I’m Kingfisher announced a new country album due in October and released the lead single. Juliet McConkey, Victoria Bailey and Emilee Emiko are some new finds for me and all released great singles. New Zephaniah OHora, LadyCouch, Stephen Simmons and Charlie Whitten singles are of course fabulous. Love the Kath Bloom song too that I somehow missed a week or two ago. The War and Treaty single is gorgeous and well I might well name check everything. My favorite song of the week is the opening song Red Bird Morning by S.G. Goodman. I somehow missed the single, so I just heard it for the first time and it absolute floored me. What a song.

That’s it for this week. Love from a distance.
