The War on Drugs, CupcakKe, Mdou Moctar, and More: This Week’s Pitchfork Selects Playlist


The staff of Pitchfork listens to a lot of new music. A lot of it. On any given day our writers, editors, and contributors go through an imposing number of new releases, giving recommendations to each other and discovering new favorites along the way. Each Monday, with our Pitchfork Selects playlist, we’re sharing what our writers are playing obsessively and highlighting some of the Pitchfork staff’s favorite new music. The playlist is a grab-bag of tracks: Its only guiding principle is that these are the songs you’d gladly send to a friend.

This week’s Pitchfork Selects playlist features The War on Drugs, CupcakKe, Mdou Moctar, Bonnie “Prince” Billy & Bill Callahan, Ohmme, Brandon Lucas, Julia Jacklin, Benny the Butcher, Chubby and the Gang, and more. Listen below and follow our playlists on Apple Music and Spotify. (Pitchfork earns a commission from purchases made through affiliate links on our site.)
