The Pitchfork staff listened to a lot of new music. Lots of it. Every day our writers, editors, and contributors come up with numerous new releases, giving recommendations to everyone and discovering new favorites. Every Monday, with ours Selected by Pitchfork playlist, we share what our writers have been playing so much and showcase some of the Pitchfork staff’s favorite new music. The playlist is a grab-bag of tracks: Its only basic principle is that these are songs that you would happily send a friend.
This week’s Pitchfork Selects playlist features J. Cole, Mereba, Origami Angel, and more. Listen below and follow our playlists Apple Music and Spotify. (Pitchfork claims a commission from purchases made through affiliate links on our site.)
