Big Boi, shown here at this past weekend's Pitchfork Festival, dominated our playlists.

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.

This week, out of 115 total picks there was some clear critical consensus among us, as new releases from Big Boi, the Roots, Rick Ross and FOE & Whygee all appeared on multiple lists. This week, we also welcome the newest additions to our growing Backbeat family, Bree Davies, Rachel Romero, Nicole Cormier and D. Williams. See our top spins and feel free to weigh in with picks of your own after the jump.
