Get your ears around Yaeji’s silky new single, sultry synths from Girlpool and bask in the glory of hip-hop’s great enigma, Jay Electronica.

There’s a daunting amount of music out there and we know it’s hard to keep up. But rather than 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 and read about last week’s additions here.

Yaeji – Waking Up Down

Yaeji’s back with the silky single from her forthcoming mixtape WHAT WE DREW 우리가 그려왔던. Cosy bedroom pop for ravers.

Jay Electronica – The Never Ending Story (featuring Jay Z)

Fans had been waiting 13 years for the Jay Electronica album which dropped last Friday. Somehow, it lives up to the hype. Bask in the glory of hip-hops great enigma.

Kehlani – Toxic

Like a lot of artists, Kehlani’s had to push back her album plans because of coronavirus. But for the time being, we’ve got a new single about not being able to pull yourself away from a rubbish bloke.

Key! – Sugar & Rice

Key!’s fans always go on about how underrated he is. Sugar & Rice is rumoured to be from the Atlanta artist’s next album. Hopefully enough people will appreciate how good it is.

Girlpool – Like I’m Winning It

Girlpool started out as a indie-punk project – making scrappy tunes with just guitar, bass and harmonised vocals. Their artistic evolution has led them to Like I’m Winning It – a sultry synth pop song about power and lust.”
