Pitchfork employees listen to a lot of new music. Lots of it. Every day, our authors, editors, and contributors go through an impressive number of new publications, making recommendations to each other, and discovering new favorites. Every Monday we use our Pitchfork Selects playlist to share what our writers obsessively play and highlight some of the Pitchfork staff’s favorite new pieces of music. The playlist is a collection of songs: the only guiding principle is that these are the songs you would like to send to a friend.

This week’s Pitchfork Selects playlist includes Joseph Shabason, Flock of Dimes, Cardi B, Tkay Maidza, SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE, and more. Listen below and follow our playlists on Apple Music and Spotify. (Pitchfork earns a commission on purchases made through affiliate links on our website.)
