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 is updating every week. Check it out below.

Read about last week’s playlist additions here.

Post Malone – Circles

Post announced his new album Hollywood’s Bleeding by showing off the star-studded feature list including DaBaby, SZA, Meek Mill, Future and Ozzy Osbourne. But he’s going it alone on new single Circles – a sad and breezy rock tune for waving away the summer.

Duckwrth – Crush

The LA rapper’s new track is a cheeky anthem for all the people he fancies. The oldies out there might hear influences of early 00s Neptunes production.

HoodCelebrityy – Bum Pon It

The Jamaica-born, Bronx-raised artist does dancehall with a pinch of trap. Bum Pon It will have you pining for the pool party.

Pusha T – Coming Home ft. Ms Lauryn Hill

Recorded in late 2015, this high-profile collab leaked earlier this summer. Now Pusha’s given it the official release as part of the Third Strike Campaign” – which hopes to free prisoners who’ve been sentenced to life in prison in states with the three-strikes law. Kanye West, Mike Dean, and Charlie Heat made the beat.

Sudan Archives – Confessions

Sudan Archives definitely has her own thing going on. Keep an eye out for the violinist/singer/producer’s debut album, dropping soon via alternative hip-hop label Stones Throw.

TWINS – Lie Awake

Ice-cold synth pop excellence from Atlanta musician Matt Weiner.

Lil Tecca – Sidenote

You might not have heard of Lil Tecca, but according to his streaming stats, he’s fucking massive – his breakthrough track Ransom is currently sitting on nearly 250 million Spotify plays. The 17-year-old New York rapper just dropped his full length project We Love You Tecca, and Sidenote features a typically colourful beat from Playboi Carti producer P’ierre Bourne.
