Singles file: Wiz Khalifa, the Feelies, Foo Fighters

By Allison Stewart

wiz khalifaWiz Khalifa's new song is about ... a girl? (Kyle Gustafson/FTWP)

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

Wiz Khalifa: "Roll Up"

If Khalifa had his way, all his love songs would probably be about weed. But because he's attempting to build a crossover empire, this one's about a girl. Produced by Stargate (the team behind Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" and countless Rihanna hits), it's a smash in the making.

The Feelies: "Should Be Gone"

Following in the footsteps of the Vaselines, the Jersey-based Feelies are the latest in a succession of long-lost indie-pop bands to reunite. This jangle-poppy new single hails from an upcoming release, the band's first in 20 years, "Here Before."

Mr. Dream: "Crime"

Also evoking 1991: this Brooklyn punk trio, whose excellent new track will induce instant pangs of nostalgia for "Surfer Rosa"-era Pixies.

Foo Fighters: "These Days"

If this new song, played live in Santa Barbara over the weekend, is any indication, Foo's upcoming disc is going to be an absolute beast.

Yelle: "Safari Disco Club" (HLM remix)

The French electropop chanteuse's already bewitching club hit gets an expansive new remix.
