This week we’re highlighting new music from Viagra Boys, Metric, and Westside Gunn.
Viagra Boys – Cave World
Stockholm post-punk band Viagra Boys have returned to release their third album, Cave World.

Twelve tracks deep and 40 minutes later, you may end up in a pool of sweat after listening to the album.
Standout Songs: Baby Criminal, Troglodyte, Punk Rock Loser, Ain’t No Thief, Return To Monke
Metric – Formentera
Toronto band Metric have released their eighth album, Formentera. Named after the Spanish island of the same name, Metric has created a buzz by naming their latest album after the famed island as it carries significant weight in the history of rock n’ roll. Emily Haines comments on the island’s history, “We came to this realization that it wasn’t even about an actual place anymore… It was about creating an escape for yourself in your mind because you’re powerless over so many things.”
Standout Songs: Doomscroller, All Comes Crashing, Formentera, False Dichotomy
Westside Gunn – PEACE “FLY” GOD
Westside Gunn returns with a tight and flowing mixtape featuring beats from Madlib, Don Carrera, Conductor Williams, and Daringer. Recorded in only 48 hours, the Griselda cofounder’s first output of 2022 boasts features with Stove God Cook$ and Estee Nack. PEACE “FLY” GOD is gritty and should not disappoint.
