What This Is: The esteemed online magazine’s top tastemaker, founder and editor-in-chief Ryan Schreiber, curates this weekly playlist every Tuesday. He digs into new releases across all genres to feature up-and-coming artists, old favorites, hot singles, and deep album cuts. Schreiber’s intent is to make this a more thoughtful alternative to algorithm-based playlists.
What to Expect: Given the nature of a mix that has no boundaries, don’t expect anything too smooth or carefully curated. Instead, you’ll get a sampling of what will surely be Pitchfork-approved releases with a sprinkling of cerebral hip-hop, hazy electro-R&B, smart indie pop, and probably some straight-up pop.
