​As people who think about, talk about, listen to and make music, the most common question we encounter is, "What are you listening to right now?" So whether you're looking for recommendations, trying to get a feel for our individual sensibilities, or are just curious, we've compiled a list of all the things we're listening to this week.

Of our 65 total picks, only three albums appeared more than once this week. Making Up A Changing Mind by Pretty Lights , Sisterworld by Liars and Plastic Beach by Gorillaz all showed up twice. The rest of our top spins are after the jump. Feel free to leave your own in the comments.
