Rat­ed by The Face: A week­ly playlist

The best contemporary music – refreshed weekly.

There’s a daunt­ing amount of music out there and we know it’s hard to keep up. But rather sub­mit­ting your­self to an algo­rithm for new music rec­om­men­da­tions, try this lov­ing­ly curat­ed playlist that The Face will be updat­ing every week. Check it out below. 

Read about last week’s playlist addi­tions here.

BTS & Juice WRLDAll Night

The K-pop stars have dropped anoth­er tune from their mobile game BTS World – this one fea­tures Chica­go singer-rap­per Juice WRLD plus pro­duc­tion from mem­bers of NYC hip-hop crews Pro Era and Beast Coast.

Stef­flon Don & Lil Baby – Phone Down

Steff con­tin­ues to aim for a US audi­ence. This time, she’s teamed up with Atlanta’s Lil Baby for a pop-rap banger, urg­ing her man to stop scrolling and give her the atten­tion she deserves. It works.

Car­o­line Polacheck – Door

A stun­ning debut solo sin­gle from the ex-Chair­lift member.

Alex Cameron – Divorce

The Aussie musi­cian has announced his forth­com­ing album Mia­mi Mem­o­ry, which tells the sto­ry of a cou­ple bal­anc­ing sex with con­tem­po­rary fam­i­ly val­ues”. Eccen­tric sin­gle Divorce details roman­tic tribu­la­tions, from futon couch­es to drink­ing in the dark.

black midi – Near DTMI

A fero­cious track from the pint-sized noise-rock­ers that ref­er­ences the water cri­sis in Flint, Michigan. 

K-Lone – Sine Lan­guage

A slick, moody track fresh out of Bristol’s under­ground club scene.

Mach – Hom­my – Mit­trom FT. Earl Sweatshirt

Earl’s hopped on a track with the mys­te­ri­ous New Jer­sey rap­per Mach-Hom­my. It’s rem­i­nis­cent of the mushy psy­che­del­ic vibe of Earl’s 2018 album Some Rap Songs.

P’ierre Bourne – Juice

P’ierre’s sweet, feath­erlight beats have been key to Play­boi Carti’s suc­cess, but he’s had less luck with his own rap career. Tak­en from a new LP, Juice makes a sol­id case for P’ierre Bourne get­ting in the booth.

Liss – Vibra­tions

The Copen­hagen indie pop group have returned with new EP Sec­ond Vibra­tions is a shim­mer­ing highlight. 

IQ – Road Run­na ft. Smoodface

Sun-kissed dance­hall from the Lon­don-based artist’s recent EP Jamaican Prince.

Lil Nas X – Rodeo ft. Car­di B

Will Lil Nas X ever top the hype of Old Town Road? Of course he won’t. But Rodeos a pret­ty decent effort.
