Another week of August, another week of excellent new tunes. Or is it AWGEST? The A$AP Mob's aptly-titled takeover of the eighth month of the calendar year stays strong with "Feels So Good," a delectable new cut from their highly-anticipated Cozy Tapes Vol. 2, and in the same week as a full-length from A$AP Ferg to boot.

Today we've also been greeted with a double-whammy of debut EP's from women who have been in the music game for a decade plus. Alice Glass, formerly of Crystal Castles, surprise delivered her self-titled EP which is chock full of witch-housey gems, while Samantha Urbani has more than lived up to the hype of her set of '80s-inflected power-pop.

And don't even get us started on the new LCD Soundsystem song, the new Justin Bieber summer jam and a (thankfully) pleasant new outing from Miley Cyrus. All the above and more can be found in the latest edition of Best Tracks of the Week:

A$AP Mob - "Feels So Good"

The A$AP Mob's indication that their month-long AWGEST takeover would be something special continues to be proven more right with each passing day. As another taster of their forthcoming Cozy Tapes Vol. 2, "Feels So Good" does a damn fine job of making you feel precisely as the title implies.

Alice Glass - "Forgiveness"

Alice Glass surprise-dropped her EP today, and we’re still scrambling. “Forgiveness” is definitely a highlight with its driving bass stabs and powerful yet dancey, darkwave vibes. Like on “Without Love” (which we’ve been listening to non stop since it dropped) Glass’s vocals are front and center, and we love it.

BROCKHAMPTON - "JUNKY"

Some have begun to hail rap-collective BROCKHAMPTON as the next generation's answer to Odd Future, and with new single "JUNKY" it's easy to see why. Few posses are able to possess such shock value based not on cheap stunts by on lyrical prowess. Frontman Kevin Abstract's righteous anger towards his mother about his sexuality make Tyler, The Creator's veiled allusions to his own demons as exciting as a weather report.

Gorillaz - "Strobelite" ft. Peven Everett (Kaytranada Remix)

One of the best producers out there remixes Gorillaz’ latest, and it’s nothing short of amazing. Kaytranada kicks it old school with his take on “Strobelite,” adding vinyl crackle and laid-back dubby grooves.

Gucci Mane - “I Get the Bag” ft. Migos

As soon as you hear “It’s gooch” on Gucci Mane’s latest track, you know it’s about to be lit. The beats courtesy of Gucci himself are dark, trappy goodness, and Takeoff was definitely not left off this track, delivering a solid verse comparing his lady to Kris Jenner.

Justin Bieber - "Friends" ft. BloodPop®

The Biebs slides into summer in the knick of time with a delectable slice of pop perfection courtesy of producer BloodPop®. In the best way possible, “Friends” sounds like it should be blaring from amusement park speakers as you’re riding a rollercoaster after eating too much cotton candy.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith - "To Follow & Lead"

Simply put, no one is making electronic music (or, music) like Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. Still fresh from releasing her phenomenal debut EARS from last year, her latest single keeps in line with her now-characteristic glossy vocals paired with instrumentation that is rich, earthy and inhabiting several sonic planes all at once.

LCD Soundsystem - "tonite"

While both of the singles released so far from LCD Soundsystem's grand return album American Dream indicated that the Brooklyn-outfit had lost none of their magic, "tonite" is the track that proves they're also making some of the best music of their career. What. A. Groove.

Miley Cyrus - "Younger Now"

The title track off her upcoming album, "Younger Now" is by far the most fun of her lead up singles thus far. Here is the Miley we've been waiting for, especially when compared to something like the previously-released "Malibu." It's a welcome relief that Miley is capable of stripping down her sound without relinquishing any of her instinctual, feel-good pop hooks.

Samantha Urbani - "Time Time Time"

Samantha Urbani's debut EP has been in the works for literal years. Now that it has arrived, it is clear it was well-worth the wait. Take closing track "Time Time Time," a slice of power-pop that wear its influences on its sleeve (Janet Jackson for one) but carries a sensual wonder that only Urbani can claim to own.
