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.

TWINSLie 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.
