THE FACE Podcast: the best music of the year so far

This week we discuss Lana Del Rey, Boys a Liar pt 2 and the rockstar reinventions of slowthai, 100 gecs and Lil Yachty.

We’ve now completed 25 per cent of 2023. The weather’s been consistently crap so far, but fortunately, some excellent records have dropped this year.

So for his week’s episode of THE FACE Podcast, our Editor Matthew Whitehouse is joined by Music Director Davy Reed and Staff Writer Jade Wickes to dissect some of Q1’s key releases – from Lana Del Rey’s ninth studio album (deep breath) Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Boulevard? to (deep breath) Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds) by subversive rocker Yves Tumor.

Speaking of rock – rap rabble-rouser slowthai, hyperpop leaders 100 gecs and bubblegum trap artist Lil Yachty have all dropped guitar-heavy albums this year. Is something in the water? Listen to our thoughts below.
