Rated by The Face: a weekly playlist

Yaeji enlists her rapper friends, The 1975 team up with Phoebe Bridgers and Biig Piig dabbles in drum 'n' bass.

We’re in a crisis, but great music keeps coming out.

To keep up with it all, check out this playlist which we lovingly update every week. Listen below and read about last week’s additions here.

Yaeji – Spell ft. Yon Yon & G.L.A.M.

By now you’re probably aware that The Face loves Yaeji. Here’s a fave from her new mixtape 𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘞𝘦 𝘋𝘳𝘦𝘸 우리가 그려왔던, featuring rap verses from Tokyo’s Yon Yon and Oakland MC/​producer G.L.A.M.

Biig Piig – Switch

The NiNE8 member goes drum’n’bass for her new politically-charged single. Read all about it.

Sech – Relación

After featuring on Bad Bunny’s single Ignorantes, Panamanian artist Sech has shared his first solo track of 2020. Judging from the Google translation of the lyrics and the video (which sees a bride stamp on her wedding cake then spark up a cigarette) it’s about a woman having a great time after sacking off her partner.

The 1975 – Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America (ft. Phoebe Bridgers)

The 1975’s new album Notes on a Conditional Form is dropping on 22 May. The tunes we’ve heard so far range from ambient climate activism (the Greta Thunberg collab), to scuzzy punk (People) and jangly indie-pop (Me & You Together Song). This lovely folk duet with Phoebe Bridgers might be the best one yet.

Sheff G – Moody

Sheff G’s one of main pioneers of the Brooklyn drill scene, which was made world-famous by the late Pop Smoke. But Sheff’s not been restricted by the genre’s trademark menacing sonics for a while now. Hear him do his thing over a finger-picked acoustic guitar sample on Moody.
