New Music Friday – July 8 2022

This week’s New Music Friday features new album releases from Metric, Brent Faiyaz, Viagra Boys, Katy J Pearson, and Wu-Lu. Happy listening!

"I Will Never Settle" by Metric

Album: Formentera


Two decades on, Formentera sees the band still going from strength to strength, evolving their sound as time goes on, while retaining all the elements which make them such an enjoyable listen.

"FYTB" by Brent Faiyaz ft Joony



The 19-track LP includes the previously shared tracks “Dead Man Walking,” “Gravity” featuring Tyler, the Creator, “Wasting Time” featuring Drake and The Neptunes, and “Price of Fame.” The album includes additional features from Tre’ Amani, Joony and Alicia Keys. Faiyaz also collaborated with a range of songwriters and producers, including Raphael Saadiq, The-Dream, Steve Lacy, Mike Dean and Jorja Smith, to name a few.

"Big Boy" by Viagra Boys ft Jason Williamson

Album: Cave World


Viagra Boys stamp a great big watermark over this album as they engrave their aesthetic right down to its core. ‘Cave World’ sees them bounce back with another grandiose LP just a year after their last – true miracle workers.

"Alligator" by Katy J Pearson

Album: Sound of Morning


While Sound of the Morning undoubtedly develops her songcraft and expands her musical frames of reference, there’s a sense she wants to ease the listener along rather than produce a Kid A-style left turn. It’s this approach of gentle encouragement that makes her new album the ideal sound of an early summer morning.
Loud and Quiet

"Scrambled Tricks" by Wu-Lu

Album: Loggerhead


The versatile and genre-bending twelve-track project merges rap and heavy metal influences to produce a grungy, post-punk take on the sound of modern London. Occasionally contrasting scratchy, warped guitar riffs with floating string arrangements, expertly layered over grinding bass and triplet-laced drums.
