Richard Russell’s life in 19 totemic tracks

As the founder of XL – the British record label that brought us The Prodigy, Dizzee Rascal, Adele, The White Stripes, Tyler, The Creator and more – releases his new multi-artist album under the name Everything Is Recorded and publishes his memoir, we take you on a wild ride through 30 years of groundbreaking music.

Rated by The Face: a weekly playlist

Brace yourself... Rihanna’s back with sensual vocals alongside PARTYNEXTDOOR, Rosalía hits us with a raw break up track and Dua brings the party with her new disco album Future Nostalgia.

Volume 4 Issue 3: Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine and Benny the Butcher formed more than 15 years ago, developing a gnarly sound inspired by the slimy criminal underbelly of Buffalo, New York. In a landscape of youthful, Auto-Tuned rap stars, they stand out like ugly ducklings.

Haim: killer queens

Sitting down and opening up with Haim ahead of the release of their revelational new album. “We didn’t mean it to be this way,” they say, “but it ended up being our most personal record.”
