A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...

Feist: “How Come You Never Go There”

The jump-off single from Feist’s first release in four years, “Metals,” is slight, bluesy and very, very understated.

ASAP Rocky: “Peso”

If Wiz Khalifa were a Southern rapper, he would sound something like the white-hot (in a blog kind of way) Rocky, who’s actually from Harlem. The latest from his upcoming debut mix tape, “LIVELOVEA$AP,” is intensely mellow and ridiculously good.

King Cannibal: “Count in Fours” (mix tape)

The creepy British dubstep producer’s well-collated new mix tape features such acts as Burial and Sharam from Deep Dish, as well as work from Cannibal himself.

Michael Kiwanuka: “Tell Me a Tale”

The up-and-coming British singer-songwriter, a sometime tourmate of Adele, channels Bill Withers on this taut retro-soul track, from the EP of the same name.

Lil Wayne featuring Drake and Rick Ross: “She Will” (remix)

Apparently, the official version of this really solid “Tha Carter IV” track leaves out Ross’s verse; this remix-that’s-really-probably-the-original-version-in-disguise rectifies the error.
