Pitchfork employees listen to a lot of new music. Much of it. Every day our authors, editors and contributors go through an impressive number of new publications, give each other recommendations and discover new favorites. Every Monday we use our Pitchfork Selects playlist to share what our writers are obsessively playing and highlight some of the Pitchfork staff’s new favorites. The playlist is a hodgepodge of tracks: your only guiding principle is that these are the songs you’d like to send to a friend.

This week’s Pitchfork Selects playlist includes Baby Keem with Kendrick Lamar, Kacey Musgraves, Cleo Sol, Tony Seltzer with Eartheater, Kacy Hill 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.)
