Every week, EW’s music staff takes a hard listen to the biggest new tracks and offers up our unfiltered opinions. Read on for reviews of new tracks by Tinashe, Gucci Mane, Danny Brown, and more.

Gucci Mane feat. Young Dolph, “Bling Blaww Burr”

No, it’s not Aziz Ansari’s deranged alter ego — it’s the second new song French house duo Justice have dropped from their long-in-the-works third album Woman, due out in November. EDM has vastly changed since they burst on the scene with 2007’s “D.A.N.C.E.” — or even since their last album, 2011’s Audio, Video, Disco — but Justice’s riffs still channel indisputable, leather-clad cool. On “Randy,” they combine groovy guitars, pummeling drums, Halloween-ready synth stabs, and vocals that sound more suited for a late-era Beatles record than an after-hours discotheque for a compulsively danceable track that’s so good we’ll forgive the mid-song chamber music breakdown.
