Another week, another weekly playlist.
I did this rather quickly tonight, because tomorrow I will go to Helsinki for the Laura Gibson concert. Don’t miss it. I’m sure it’s going to be special. Otherwise the blog is a bit on hold at the moment, because I’m just too heartbroken to concentrate on it.
This week gave new albums from Hallelujah the Hills, VanWyck, Bonnie Prince Billy, Arthur Russell, Smug Brothers, Tindersticks, Fran and Joe Henry. Friendship and Romantic States are slightly older and Little Mazarn is a whole lot older, but I missed them earlier in 2019.
Finland section contains album from Baby Sweetcorn, EPs from Treemer, Nina Kaitajärvi and Merriment and Dirt and singles from Tuomo & Markus, Viinamäki and Nelijalka.
The single of the week is the new one from the forthcoming Micah Schnabel. The playlist also contains great new singles from Mo Troper, MAITA, David Dondero, Maija Sofia, Andy Shauf and much more.
That’s all for now. Love love love.

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.
