While this week was primarily the week we spent salivating waiting for Vince Staples' new album (side note, it is incredible), there were still plenty of other tunes that found their way into our headphones. Among them, an absolute banger from A$AP Ferg, more delicious soft-rock from HAIM, a psychedelic single from Grizzly Bear and a surprise return from Hercules & Love Affair.

Here are our picks for the Best Tracks of the Week:

A$AP Ferg---"Tango" ft. Kanobby

A$AP Ferg’s unexpectedly emotional track has the Hood Pope reflecting on the loss of his father and old friend A$AP Yams, whilst channeling his other problems over a fluttering, synth-led beat. Kanobby croons off the songs hook before Ferg steps up to rally off some introspective bars.

Baba Stiltz---"This Is It"

23-year-old Stockholm-based ingenue Baba Stiltz treats us all to a mellow, synth-informed sleeper dance track that couldn’t be more perfect for rooftop and poolside gatherings.

Batu---"Marius"

The Bristolian boss of all things bass just dropped his Marius EP, and the title track is a warbling dancefloor mirage with wonky, driving rhythms. An ideal record to mark the 10th anniversary of cult UK imprint Hessle Audio.

--Bianca

GoldLink---"Crew" Remix ft. Gucci Mane

“Goldlink is riding high from the release of At What Cost, his third full-length released earlier this spring. The D.C. rapper delivered a concise set of trunk-rattlers with his latest effort, but the track “Crew” proved to be a particularly memorable standout. Now, he has given the song the remix treatment, enlisting none other than Gucci Mane.”

Grizzly Bear---"Four Cypresses"

Grizzly Bear sound as dreamy as ever on the latest offering from their upcoming album Painted Ruins. Built around a series of subtle, repetitive loops that build into a psychedelic fantasia, this song seems destined to soundtrack a smoking session near me, soon.

--Jake

HAIM---"Little of Your Love"

HAIM’s latest single from their forthcoming album Something to Tell You is filled to the brim with everything we love about the Haim sisters - lush vocal harmonies, on-point pop hooks, some casual guitar shredding and a dash of classic Fleetwood Mac vibes.

--Bianca

Hercules & Love Affair---"Omnion" ft. Sharon Van Etten

Veteran New York dancehall overlords Hercules & Love Affair have come roaring back to life, well maybe not roaring per se. The gang has teamed up with indie songstress Sharon Van Etten for the title track of their upcoming album, and the result is an understated yet incredibly melodious entry into their latest sonic adventure.

--Jake

Kacy Hill---"Keep Me Sane"

G.O.O.D. music signee Kacy Hill’s forthcoming debut studio album is set to be one of the most anticipated projects of the year. Hill has been working with some of the best producers and writers in the game, including Kanye West who is the album’s executive producer. Today the songstress teased the release with a new single, “Keep Me Sane.”

--Stephanie

Laurel Halo---"Moontalk"

Spoken word, floating melodies, and shuffling percussion could be a way to begin to describe Laurel Halo’s latest album Dust. Bending genres and perhaps even the space-time continuum, one of its many highlights is “Moontalk” - a demented J-pop video game soundtrack with a multitude of voices and a disconnected landline dial tone.

--Bianca

Vince Staples---"Yeah Right"

"'Yeah Right' is a call-and-response war chant that pits Staples venomously rapping about the state of the industry against a SOPHIE beat that is a veritable ticking time bomb. A series of guttural, inhuman wails trail behind each line, turning an already incisive commentary into an unnerving, mechanical behemoth. And just when you think it can’t get any bigger, Kendrick Lamar steps in for a verse."
